Meal delivery services aren’t just for adults—there are lots of baby food delivery services too. And the imminent arrival of the newest royal baby had us wondering which ones are worthy of a little prince or princess.
People around the world (ourselves included) are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the royal baby, who should be born any day now to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The first-time parents have actually said they plan to keep the birth private, so for all we know, their little bundle of joy could have been born already.
We’ve been speculating about what meals the royal baby will eat, and while we don’t have a concrete answer, it will more than likely involve a lot of high-quality, fresh organic ingredients prepared by the family’s team of private chefs. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have the luxury of an in-house culinary team (or the time to make homemade baby food), but the good news is that you can still feed your little ones the same caliber of meals. How? With the help of a baby food delivery service!
The following are seven of the top-rated, best baby food delivery services for babies and toddlers alike, all of which we think the royal children (not to mention busy parents!).would approve of.
