We are thrilled to announce The Dinner Daily is now working with Tufts Health Plan, based in Watertown, MA, as part of the Tufts Health Plan Wellness Program.

THE DINNER DAILY MAKES HEALTHY DINNERS EASIER
FOR TUFTS HEALTH PLAN MEMBERS
Innovative Service Provides Weekly Dinner Plans Based on User Preferences and Store Specials
The Dinner Daily has announced it is working with Tufts Health Plan to help its commercial members make dinners easy, more affordable and less stressful. The Dinner Daily’s unique “Menus Based on Store Specials” approach can lower a family’s food bills and help them eat healthier dinners. Founded in Massachusetts by working-mom-turned-entrepreneur Laurin Mills, The Dinner Daily helps families and couples get back to the joys and benefits of having family dinners.
“Most working families struggle with getting a healthy dinner on the table night after night” said Mills. “At the end of a long day, not having a plan for dinner too often leads to less than healthy takeout or pre-prepared meals, overspending on groceries and a lot of stress. The Dinner Daily solves this by providing a ready-to-go solution for everyday life. Our members know what they are going to prepare each night, they know the ingredients are in the house, and our smart shopping lists have lowered their food bills. It’s a win-win.”
The Dinner Daily members receive customized dinner menus and shopping lists each week that fit their personal food and dietary preferences while maximizing changing weekly specials at the grocery stores where they shop. Members can switch anything on their menus in seconds and their shopping list is automatically updated. The organized, editable, mobile-friendly shopping list makes shopping quick and easy, whether in store or through online ordering and delivery systems.
“We know that in today’s busy, working world, preparing healthy, nutritious meals can be difficult, expensive and often time consuming for our members,” said Jim Gallagher, vice president of marketing and strategy at Tufts Health Plan. “We are very pleased to provide The Dinner Daily to our members because it is not only flexible and extremely user-friendly, but helps to produce a significant cost savings. We are encouraging all of our members to try it out,”
Tufts Health Plan members have access to a two week free trial of the service. After the trial period, Tufts Health Plan members will be able to continue under members’ only pricing.
The Dinner Daily’s proprietary algorithm-based technology takes into consideration hundreds of factors to produce well-balanced, interesting and healthy plans that optimize use of weekly store specials.
The healthy, easy-to-prepare recipes are created by The Dinner Daily team under the guidance of registered dietitians. Recipes are focused on a reasonable number of fresh, healthy ingredients, easy instructions and most meals can be created in 30 minutes or less
The Dinner Daily also just launched one-button ordering from Peapod for plan to delivery ease. When compared to the typical cost of meal kit services, The Dinner Daily is less than half the cost.
