  • Assess the brand: Does it operate with integrity and adhere to industry best practices?
We do the research so you can find trusted products for your health and wellness.

At Healthline, we know that meal delivery services aren’t a small investment, so we’ve taken the time to test more than 30 of the most popular meal delivery services on the market. Testers select a week’s worth of meals from multiple menus to get a well-rounded view of the types of flavors and ingredients offered.

During testing, we consider several factors, including the ease of the signup and meal selection process, the variety and nutritional composition of the meals offered, ingredient quality and freshness, how easy the meals are to cook, and, of course, the taste.

We also aim to include meal delivery services suitable for a wide range of dietary needs and preferences, with options available at many different price points.

You can learn more about our testing process.

All the meal delivery services listed above are focused on nutrition as well as taste. Many also support specialty diets. In other words, you can’t go wrong with any of them!

Depending on your preferences, you can find healthy meal delivery of prepared entrees or meal kits that provide ingredients and a recipe card for you to make at home.

Use the list at the top of the article as a starting point to find the best healthy meal delivery for you.

Of the options on our list, Epicured and Sunbasket offer the lowest prices per serving. But most services also charge delivery fees per order, so you’ll want to factor that into your budget.

It’s worth noting that some services offer special introductory rates, if you’d like to try one out before committing to the regular pricing.

Yes! Factor is a very healthy meal delivery service, offering flavorful, nutritionally balanced meals that support numerous dietary plans, including keto and plant-based.

Further, Factor meals are free of gluten, refined sugars, hormones, antibiotics, and GMOs. And all subscriptions include a free 20-minute consultation with a registered dietitian, with monthly coaching packages available for an additional fee.

Many of the ingredients used in prepared meals offered by these services are healthy and nutrient-rich.

But be sure to look closely at the ingredients in each meal. Many meal options included in these plans may contain preservatives and processed ingredients linked to disease when consumed over a long period of time.

These prepared meals may also contain fats, sugars, and sodium that can build up to unhealthy levels if you’re eating meals from these meal kit services regularly.

Most HelloFresh prepared meals are designed to be nutrient-rich and full of healthy ingredients.

But HelloFresh doesn’t offer a lot of variety for people who want organic ingredients or have dietary restrictions and need vegan meals or otherwise.

If you’re looking for the best healthy meal delivery near you, you can choose a prepared meal company that prioritizes ingredient quality, nutritional content, and meal variety. It’s also important to consider factors such as prep time and your dietary needs or preferences.

Our comprehensive list above can help you find the service that’s right for you.
