Meals

Peel the corner back and microwave for 3 – 4 minutes or until piping hot. Due to varying microwave wattages, some may require slightly more or less time to heat each meal. Alternatively, if you want to use an oven to heat your meals, place in the oven and fan bake at 150 degrees for 10-15 mins. For best results make sure you defrost your meals first. And of course let the meal cool until it is safe for your kids to enjoy.

Yes. Make sure you store your meals in the freezer.  For best results defrost the meals in the fridge overnight then microwave on high for 3 -4 minutes. If you are reheating from frozen, defrost in the microwave for 4 minutes then heat on high for 3-4 mins. Never refreeze defrosted meals.

Our meals are all sent out frozen and should be put into the freezer upon delivery. Be sure to follow the use by date on the sticker.
