What’s Revolution Foods?
Revolution Foods was founded ten years ago by two moms looking to change kids’ eating habits, and they now serve over two million freshly prepared meals per week in over 1000 schools nationwide. Now, they’re expanding their mission to stores with these Breakfast Hero and Dinner Hero cooking kits for busy parents, AKA “speed-scratch cooking kits” — and are donating 1% of retail sales to schools to help them provide fresh meals to students.
Each Revolution Foods Dinner Hero contains over 40g of whole grains, with no artificial colors or flavors. Just add a protein of choice to each kit (which will also work with alternative pairings to the meats suggested on the front of the box).
A Revolution Foods Review
I recently had the opportunity to try out Revolution Foods for myself, so let me tell you a little about my experience with the Smoky Tomato kit — since I already had a handy turkey kielbasa in the fridge to use. My dinner kit came in three parts: A brown basmati rice & red quinoa blend, tomato sauce, and a spice blend packet. Simple instructions on the back show what else is needed (in this case, 12 oz pre-cooked sausage and 1 tsp oil), so that you can easily pick up the meat you need during the same shopping trip.
Then, step-by-step instructions on the inside flap walk you through actually making the dinner. Yes: It was exactly as easy as it looks! In addition to being useful for busy families, these dinner kits could also help out beginning cooks or those looking to move away from expensive meal kit delivery services.
My Smoky Tomato Dinner Hero cooking kit made for a super-simple meal which came out just as advertised, both time- and taste-wise, and I like that the ingredients are mainly real foods.
But how did the finished meal taste? Well, it was indeed smoky and tomato-y, and the rice/quinoa blend fluffed up quite nicely. This particular kit was a little on the sweeter side for me (the sauce does contain added sugar, but not much — 2g of sugars per serving as prepared, in addition to whatever is in the sausage you choose to use). The flavor, however, was very kid-friendly and a good step towards moving kids towards eating a little more adventurously.
