The latest on meal kits (revised with updated food safety research)
from By Ellen Schuster, BA, MS
Call them meal kits, home delivery, or boxed meals; they are all the rage in the U.S. (They started in Sweden in 2007). There are large and increasingly smaller regional companies packaging ingredients for home cooks. You can find many articles with anecdotes about the pros and cons of meal kits, but little hard data. Most of the concerns about the meals have focused on excess packaging, food waste, and cost.
