For expecting mothers, we have been impressed (by our families or friends) on the importance of confinement meals, and in particular, the benefits of various ingredients that will typically be incorporated into them.
If you’ve already engaged a confinement nanny, it would normally be part of your confinement nanny’s duties to cook meals for you. But for those who have no plans to engage one and will be leaning on the support of family to tide through the confinement period, why not consider purchasing a confinement meal package to ease the burden off you and your family’s shoulders? Alternatively, if you’d like to continue rejuvenating your body with the goodness of Chinese herbs and other essential ingredients even after confinement, it may also be easier for you to purchase a confinement meal package with one of the confinement food delivery services whilst you acclimatise to taking care of your new infant without the help of your confinement lady.
Below, we share with you 10 different confinement food delivery services available in Singapore, along with their package rates. Should there be any confinement meal delivery services that we did not include in our list, please do let us know and we would be happy to update our guide accordingly.
Please note that the prices for the packages stated below do not include GST unless expressly specified.
