WHAT IS DINNER MAKES FAMILIES?

  • Our mission

    We're all about creating healthier communities in New Zealand. That means more than delivering nutritious, fresh meals to thousands of Kiwis every week, it's about bringing New Zealanders back to real, delicious, home grown food.

  • Our research

    Sharing a meal has the power to help bring families closer. Our research shows that 98% of Kiwi kids love having dinner as a family, but 83% of adults and 74% of kids are watching TV or using a device at dinnertime! 79% of children wish they had more family dinners, but only 52% of adults are at home with their families each night.

  • Where we can help

    37% of parents find dinnertime rushed or stressed, while 66% of children think the time spent preparing the meal is a great time to talk about their day. That's where we come in with easy recipes for the family to pitch in on!
