Meals & Ingredients:

What age are V&Me’s meals appropriate for?

We cater for babies and toddlers aged from 7 months – 3 years. All our meals are suitable from 6 months but you may wish to start your weaning journey with simple vegetables and fruits for the initial weeks. We recommend starting with bitter green vegetables for the first 1-2 weeks, before moving on to sweeter vegetables and fruits.

Do your meals arrive frozen?

No, we believe in giving the freshest taste, that’s why we don’t use frozen ingredients or go through any unnecessary processes to extend the shelf life of our meals. Instead, we use the best seasonal ingredients and cook them from scratch every morning before delivering them straight to your door from our kitchen.

Do the Paediatric Dietitians plan all meals on the menu?

Yes, our Paediatric Dietitians fully plan every single dish which appear on our menu. They also go through a strict process to plan out each day and week to ensure your baby has the optimal nutritional balance as well as exposure to new flavours and tastes.

Do your meals contain any salt or sugar?

No, none of our meals or desserts contain any added salt or sugar and we also do not use any additives.

Where do you source your ingredients from?

We source the best quality, freshest seasonal ingredients from reputable suppliers who also supply all the Michelin 3* restaurants in London.

For the seasonal, local product from UK farms, we use Nature’s Choice and Natoora. We use Direct Meats for their fresh free-range meat products and Daily Fish for their sustainably sourced sea foods

Can I choose the texture of the food?

Yes, there are 3 textures to choose from, please select which texture you require at the Checkout (Textured is textured puree, Lumpy has a little more lumps and Standard is toddler-sized bits, same as Toddler menu). We know that you may want to change the texture as they grow, so you can edit your preference by e-mailing us at info@vandme.co.uk. We do encourage you to move on swiftly with the textures!

What is the portion size?

As advised by our Dietitians, for the 7-12m menu, mains are typically 100g and fruits/veg 30g. For the 1-3y menu, mains are typically 200g and desserts 100g. Portion sizes may vary due to nutritional density.

How do I find out about the allergens in each meal?

All allergens are highlighted in bold on our menu.

Can we change our order days?

We send you the menu every Sunday for the following 2 weeks, so if you see your favourites, you can edit your order. Although, we would encourage you to try different flavours as the more exposure you give to your little one, the less likely they will become fussy eaters later in life. All changes can be made by Saturday, 10pm. You can add or remove extra days on your subscription by 10am the day before.

What if my baby doesn’t like the food?

Babies have an innate preference for sweeter food and it may take up to 20 tries for them to get used to a new taste. That’s why we have different menus every day, to make sure they are exposed to all the different tastes and flavours from a young age. We also have “favourites” returning every 7-10 days to make sure they can enjoy what they like!

Would I need to cook or heat up the food once it arrives?

No, our food is delivered fresh and ready-to-eat, straight from our oven to your door.

How do I store the food if my baby is not ready to eat it straightaway?

Please store them in the fridge as soon as you receive them. While reheating, we recommend using the oven for best results, you will receive detailed heating instructions with your menu. Please note appliances vary so please ensure the food is heated until piping hot and cooled down before serving.

Most dishes are suitable for microwave reheat too. Please take the food out of the containers before reheating in the microwave.

How long do the meals last for?

All our meals can last in the fridge for up to 3 days (please consume all rice dishes within 24 hours). Reheating instructions are included with our daily menu.

Do you provide adult meals so I can eat together with my child?

There is the option to choose an additional meal at the Checkout, if you would like to enjoy our meals with your child (“double up for family”). Please note, your portion size will be the same as your child’s.

Are your containers recyclable and safe for my baby?

Yes, they are free of BPA and Phtalates. They are also compostable, biodegradable and/or widely recycled in the UK.

What testing do you do to make sure your kitchen is safe?

We have a strict hygiene protocol in place. All kitchen staff hold food hygiene certificates and must go through regular health checks to ensure our meals are prepared in a safe environment. We flash freeze a sample of every dish we produce for 10 days and conduct regular testing to ensure the highest standards are adhered to at all times. We only use our own fleet and drivers for delivery so that our strict hygiene standards can be kept from the moment food leaves the kitchen to when you receive them.

Can I try as a one-off without subscribing?

What methods of payment do you accept?
