What if my child is a picky eater?

🥕 Take it slowly – involve them in things like unpacking the recipe box or helping prep the ingredients to begin with.

🥕 Eat together as a family wherever possible.

🥕 Talk about the shape, texture, smell and colour even if they aren’t ready to taste it yet.

🥕 Give them something new alongside something familiar.

🥕 If they won’t eat the meal, freeze for another time or keep it for your lunch the next day.

🥕 Don’t be disappointed if they refuse the meal, keep going with getting them involved!

FAQS

Won’t my adult portion taste really bland?

No! Our recipes are packed full of flavour for both little and big people.

If we think the recipe could use an extra something then we’ll add some chillies or a special ‘grown-up only’ sauce for you to use on your adult portion.

You can also add salt and pepper to your adult meal if you choose.

Can you cater for food allergies or intolerances?

OUR RECIPE BOXES ARE NOT ALLERGEN FREE.

Unfortunately as we are a small business, we don’t pack in an allergy free environment.

We have a non-dairy box, and we do not use egg in our recipes however we cannot guarantee that they are free from cross contamination.

Make sure you have tested your child with all known allergens before ordering a box.

Is all the produce organic?

Most of our fruit and veg is from organic suppliers, we may have the odd ingredient that is not available as organic but we will let you know on the recipe card.

Our meat is free range, high welfare and grass reared. Fish is sustainably sourced.

Our spices are not organic however you will be using very small amounts in the recipes.

The dairy for the children’s portions are organic, we may have a grown-up only cheese that is not organic but we will let you know on the recipe cards.

Can I choose my recipes?

At the moment we don’t offer a choice of recipes. We are a small mum-run business and we aim to offer a choice once we start to grow.

In the meantime, let us save you the time and hassle by sending you 3 delicious recipes every fortnight without you having to think about it.

Do you have a vegan box option?

Unfortunately we do not have a vegan box option at the moment.

We aim to launch one in the near future, if you want to know when we launch it you can enter your email address below.

 




When do you deliver?

We deliver every fortnight on a Wednesday. You’ll see our next delivery date when you order your box.

Don’t worry if you are out when your box arrives as the chilled produce is kept at the right temperature with insulation and frozen gel packs.

Is it easy to pause or cancel my subscription?

Yes :-) You can do this easily by logging into your account and pausing or cancelling as and when you wish.

Hi, we are Laura and Alice!

We started planning Pickle & Squash in May 2020 when Alice had a 2 year old and was pregnant with her second, Laura had a 7 month old baby. We finally launched in June 2021!

We really wanted to take some of the mental load away from parents, being mum/dad or carer is hard enough without having to constantly think about what to feed the family.

Being able to cook just once for the whole family and knowing that your kids are getting a balanced nutritious meal would go a long way to help alleviate some of the stress and exhaustion of being a parent/carer.
