Frozen meals

Hello, my elderly mum is becoming increasingly disenchanted with Wiltshire Farm Foods so I’m researching possible alternatives. Oakhouse seem to have very variable reviews. Does anyone have good reports of frozen meals delivered to the door please?

Hi,
We had a thread on this.

Most people seem to like Wiltshire Farm Foods but my brother didn't and I could see his point. I recommend Cook! who apparently do deliver to the door but they are expensive.

Do we assume there is a dislike to marks and waitrose meals.

Elderly people gradually lose their sense of smell and taste, so it's not the food that's bland, it's their ability to taste/smell!

If you have carers in it's good to have things that you can microwave from frozen. M&S definitely have things you can freeze, but they don't give advice on how to microwave from frozen.

This is certainly part of it, you are right, Bowlingbun. But please try Wiltshire Farmhouse Foods and report back!

I never buy frozen meals! Mum passed away a few years ago.

No, I didn't think you did and I didn't think we were talking about your mother. I just wanted to emphasize my opinion of Wiltshire Farm Foods. :) The very name is suspicious.

I mentioned mum because she did have Wiltshire Farm Foods and various other meals delivered to her home, but she said they all tasted the same, unaware that the problem was her dwindling taste buds, not the food itself.

Ah yes. We didn't use them for long.
