MFM broths and meals are delivered frozen in 1litre glass jars. The broth cubes are delivered frozen in cube sized portions and packaged in 450mls brown paper kraft bags.
Delivery is made on the date you choose. We endeavour to deliver before 8.30am or after 3pm. Made for Mothers is handmade fresh weekly and delivered to you frozen. As a result, our product is heat sensitive so we do our best to deliver it to you within convenient time frames for you to unpack and transfer to your freezer. Bear in mind it will stay frozen once delivered for a few hours. To help further with this we ask that the receiver or someone please be home for the packages arrival to avoid any excess heat exposure. Made for Mothers cannot be held responsible for any damage or for conditions beyond our control.
Once your MFM package is delivered to your front door or specified area, we will confirm delivery by text and we will NOT knock unless we are instructed to. After delivery, we will not be responsible for any stolen items. We will photograph where each box is left so we can ensure accurate delivery. At check out, please specify delivery instructions (such as specifics on apartment block entry and security gates) in the notes section.
The items in jars will remain frozen for a few hours. The cubes are more likely to defrost after one to two hours, depending on the season. Therefore it is advised that someone please be home for the package's arrival. If this is not possible and in the case you leave early in the morning or arrive home late in the evening, and you want your goods to remain frozen, please be in touch and we will see what we can do.
MFM is committed to lowering the impact on our environment. We hope you can find use for your jars in your home food storage as they are a much better option than using plastics with their harmful, synthetic by-products. When using them, make sure they are sterilised and that you only transfer warm foods, allowing them to further cool before transfering to the fridge or freezer. Fill them an inch below the top to allow space for expansion when freezing. If you have an excess, please recycle.
I am a nutritionist with special interest in female health and reproductive health. I have designed the menu to be suitable for women at every stage of life, which includes pregnancy. Botanicals that have been included have been done so in culinary quantities and as such they are safe quantities to be consumed. Always make sure you store the food as suggested and consume it within the given time frames and expiry date. Also make sure it is heated thoroughly before eating it. If in doubt or needing further assurance, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Further to this, always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on this site.
Absolutely! MFM is restorative, supportive, nutritious food that can be enjoyed by everyone. Enjoy MFM if you are recovering from illness, feeling uninspired to cook for yourself, or are looking for a healthy family meal. Partners, older children, grandparents, and support people also love to be fed by MFM. Order for your entire crew.
My preferred method would be stove top. Simply empty the contents of your jar into a small pan, cover and warm on a medium heat, stirring continuously, for 10 minutes or until it is slightly bubbling but not a full boil. Always make sure that your food is heated evenly throughout.
You can also use a microwave, just be sure to empty the contents into a microwave safe dish before doing so.
Everything arrives frozen and lasts 6 months in the freezer. Defrost your MFM in the fridge overnight and once defrosted, keep refrigerated below 4c at all times. Consume the broths within 5 days and the meals within 3 days.
MFM broth wobbles like jelly and feels like a “big warm hug”. I include a variety of 100% pastured and humanely raised chicken & beef bones to the pot and simmer these for a minimum of 12 hours. Add to this unique botanicals that have been selected based on their health restoring properties, and what you have is a deeply, gelatinous broth with a flavour and nutrient profile like no other.
