Davao Meal Kit

Taking care of the kids, preparing food for every meal, meeting deadlines, and calling clients all at the same time may just be one of the skills Moms can master after the onset of the pandemic. But it doesn’t have to be this hard. Admit it. Of all the chores mentioned, one that really stands out is having to prepare a menu every meal. On top of this, it does not only involve cooking. It also involves deciding what to cook for the day and preparing all the ingredients you need to make the dish. This is where meal planning conveniently comes in. 

Meal planning in Davao is more often than not tagged under “only rich people can afford.” But this is not the case. Meal planning is for everyone! It is simply: planning your meals ahead for the next few days. This way, you no longer have to worry about what meal you’ll serve next. You already have a list to check on every once in a while. With this, you can also prepare all the ingredients you need beforehand. With online grocery and deliveries all over Davao City, it will surely be a breeze. Want to make your own meal plan but have no idea where to start? Don’t worry! We have you covered. We have prepared a 7-Day Budget-Friendly Meal Plan you can start as soon as possible:
