We’re now into our second week of lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak, and trips to the local supermarkets are few and far between.
Plus, even if we weren’t having to think twice - or thrice, even - before leaving the house and heading to our local fruit and veg aisle, many of us now have our children at home with us, and so getting out fuss-free is even more difficult.
However, we still need our five portions of fruit and veg a day, so today we’re thanking our lucky stars that there are still vegetable delivery services dropping off fresh (and often organic) greens to our door.
From organic salad boxes to everything you need to make a nutrition-rich soup in minutes, we never realised how many brilliant initiatives there were out there until now.
Now though, the demand on delivery services is higher than ever before and so well-known favourites might be out of stock or unable to find you a delivery slot until mid-April.
So, if you need your veg fix sooner, we’ve scouted around to find the best vegetable (and fruit) delivery boxes still bringing the goods to your door.
Whether you’re feeding a family of five or just choosing healthier options for yourself, there’s a veg box for every person and every household.
