Finally, a Healthy Frozen Kid’s Meal! (with Kidfresh)

Let me start this off by saying that I am really picky about what goes onto my family’s plate. We have a garden, avoid processed foods, and try to make most meals from scratch.

But meal times are the most stressful times of the day, especially lunch time when we’re trying to run errands and get kids home for their naps, and you’re trying to clean this pigsty and AHH! It’s just crazy!

I avoid frozen meals and feel bad serving them, they are expensive and full of stuff I don’t want to feed my family. I had no idea there were better options out there. We headed to our Super Target to try out these Kidfresh meals that promised to be a healthy frozen meal for kids.

I checked out the Kidfresh website to learn more and to make sure I wanted to try them (see, told you I was picky!). Here they were! Cheaper than some of the other options,

and they had someone handing out $1 off coupons, bonus! I grabbed a ton.

But back to the meals, they’re actually healthy. Not just because the package is green. They contain no artificial flavors, colors, ingredients, or preservatives, and are minimally processed. Each meal sneaks some veggies in, and was created in a kitchen with a chef and a pediatric nutritionist.

Check out the label, 12 ingredients. That’s it. And 5 of them are veggies!

Okay, you convinced me, Kidfresh. Let’s try these out, here are the meals they offer (in their frozen state):

The verdict? The quesadillas were devoured in record time and were said to be “very very nummy”. We all liked the Spaghetti Loops the best, and the Mac + Cheese a close second. They were getting full, but Ben did finish the ravioli before any of the other pastas.

My take:

Well, I cleaned my plate! :)

I absolutely could not detect the taste of veggies, but they added a savory, rich taste to each meal. These would be perfect for picky kids. When I told my kids about the carrots and other veggies, they ate them even better, trying to guess the veggies inside.

I felt safe giving my kids the Kidfresh meals. With the coupon, they’re about half the price of fast food and a LOT healthier. They were quick and easy, and my kids devoured ‘em. Usually the days that we head to Target are super busy and stressful, and I can see myself picking these up for when we get home. I would definitely get them again and recommend them to friends and you. :)

    This is absolutely awesome!! I am so glad you found these wonderful meals for your precious kiddies! I too am Pro everything homemade but I do work full time and sometimes I feel like I need a break from the kitchen and opt for either frozen foods, usually Amy’s or eating out. Thanks for reviewing these kid friendly healthy meals. I have no kiddies yet but must try them now lol.

      I totally get it, and I hope I didn’t come off as a snob in the post. We do eat frozen foods occasionally, just not the individual ones because the ones like Amy’s get expensive! But sometimes you need a break :) They were so good, Jessica, I’m sure you’d like em!

        Not at all! You do not come off as a snob! No way! Trust me, the day I have kids I will probably become a snob for sure considering all the terrible chemicals processed foods have so you have an excuse to be a snob for you, your family and your kids. It does become expensive to buy individual frozen foods but I also e-mail Amy’s for their coupons and they graciously send them to me by mail – so that helps a ton on the economic side. :)
