I try to feed my kids freshly prepared food each night for dinner. However sometimes in the crazy busyness of soccer, dance, gymnastics and school, we just don’t have much time for dinner.
That is why is was excited to try out Kidfresh frozen meals. These meals are a twist on children’s favorite foods, rich in vegetables and without a single drop of anything artificial. All the meals contain no artificial ingredients, flavors, colors or preservatives. Even the packaging meets the highest safety standards with no BPA, no Phthalates nor other potentially harmful chemicals. They even use recycled paper, carbon-neutral printing and recyclable containers.
My kids are very picky too and sometimes it is hard to get them to eat enough veggies. These meals include lots of veggies, (up to one half cup of vegetables per meal). For example, the Spaghetti Loops Bolognese and the Totally Twisted Pasta with Meatballs both provide one half cup of vegetables — which is about 33% of the daily recommendation for children between 4 and 8 years old. On top of that, both of these meals provide a variety of veggies like tomatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, celery and onions. I noticed that the Mac & Cheese has hidden carrots in the sauce. Love that!
Before I headed to the store, I printed a $1 off Kidfresh coupon. You can get one yourself at facebook. These meals are fairly new so you will want to check if they carry them at your local grocery store.
Kidfresh meals are available in six flavor options Wagon Wheels Mac + Cheese, Spaghetti Loops Bolognese, Muy Cheesy Quesadillas, Easy Cheesy Ravioli, Rainbow Rice + Chicken and Totally Twisted Pasta + Meatballs. My store carried four of the six.
I bought the Wagon Wheels Mac + Cheese, Spaghetti Loops Bolognese, and Muy Cheesy Quesadillas. I loved when I looked at the ingredient lists at the store that there were no artificial additives and colors.
The Kidfresh meals were on sale for 5/$11 at my local Kroger store. As I teach in my Grocery Savings Classes, this does not mean you have to buy 5 to get this price. This is one of the ways that grocery stores try to get you to buy more than you need. What 5/$11 really means is 1/ $2.20! Since I have a coupon for $1 off my price was actually just $1.20 per box!!!
The regular price is just $2.99 which is a great price too. With the coupon, each box would be just $1.99. I plan to keep a few of these on hand for crazy nights so I am not tempted to go through the drive through. These meals are not only more healthy but cheaper too!
You can see more pictures from my grocery shopping trip here. I bought lots of fresh fruit to round out the frozen meals.
I made the Wagon Wheels Mac & cheese for my youngest daughter and also gave her some strawberries. As you can see from the picture, she enjoyed it. I enjoyed that I could feed her something more healthy in under 5 minutes at a great price point.
