When Sara Lunt had twins, a friend set up a meal delivery schedule for her. Having scheduled meals took the pressure off feeding her family and “it was something to look forward to. It usually is a dish that people love making so you get a lot of delicious and thoughtful meals,” says Lunt. Meal delivery schedules make a great baby gift. Friends and families are excited about a new arrival; dropping off dinner is a helpful way to show love and support to the new (or newly expanded) family.
