But we are different from other food producers because we strictly follow the latest evidence in (pediatric) nutrition science to make our foods. We take this very seriously.

Sprout collects and reuses the glass jars to ensure sustainable consumption and resource efficiency. Upon the next delivery Sprout will recollect the previous jars. We only ask that you rinse the used jars and place them back into the Sprout box and give it to the driver. The jars are washed and sanitized in our kitchen.
We deliver all of our meals or sauces in glass jars. We are committed to limiting our (and your) use of plastic, but that is not all. Plastic can release toxins into the food, even if it’s not heated. Knowing this, using plastic would go against our commitment to provide our children with the healthiest possible meals. The 50 AED deposit is 100% refundable upon return of the glass jars. If the jars are not returned to Sprout to be reused, then Sprout will keep this deposit to cover the cost of replacing the jars.
Sprout provides the best value & service to our customers, without compromising on our foods. We charge a delivery fee to ship the food to our customers, but we cover 100% of the cost to collect the jars and return them back to our facilities where they are washed, sanitized and reused.
It’s always best to choose the meals, family sauces, breakfast and frozen items (popsicles), you like. If you don’t get around to choosing your recipes on a future order, we’ll use your most preferred options as a guide, so you always receive the ones that you like the most.
It is quite easy. Just visit the My Subscriptions page in your account and suspend or reactivate your subscription any time you want.
Sprout Food, Nutrition, Our Menu, etc.
All our foods are whole-food, plant-based and we absolutely do not use any additives, preservatives or other nasty stuff. We follow an eating framework, called the Daily Dozen, developed by the world-renowned physician and nutrition expert Dr. Michael Greger. The Daily Dozen contains 10 food groups and aims to maximize the variety of nutrients obtained through our daily diet. The Daily Dozen rests on the premise that not all plant foods are created equally and some contain more/other nutrients than others. We use the Daily Dozen as a recipe framework and work in conjunction with US Board Certified Dieticians and Nutritionists to meticulously maximize the nutrient profile of each meal. Each of our meals is designed to “check off” as many of the Daily Dozen food groups as possible with 4 of the food groups being non-negotiables for us. We make sure that each of our meals has beans (or other legumes), whole grains, cruciferous or greens and other veggies. This is how we ensure the nutrient density of our meals.
We do not use any animal products in our in any of our foods (no meat, no poultry, no fish, no eggs, no bone broth, no milk, no cheese, yogurt or butter). Our approach is whole-food, plant-based and we follow this for two key reasons: 1) as parents we know that chicken nuggets and French fries are usually neither hard to find nor a (taste) problem for your child, but vegetables, legumes and whole grains are and so, we want to help you shape your child’s palate for these vitally important foods. 2) We want to supply your child with nutrient-dense and tasty meals which promote optimal child growth and prevent chronic disease. While animal products do contain nutrients, they are delivered alongside less desirable nutrients (such as cholesterol, etc) which we want to avoid.
All meals are created by us in conjunction with US Board Certified dieticians and nutritionists. All meals are meticulously crafted for nutrient-density and taste following Dr. Michael Greger’s Daily Dozen. Pediatricians have endorsed our meals and are recommending them to their patients in their clinics.
For each meal you will find the ingredients and nutritional information on our website, as well as on the labels. As a first step, we recommend that you closely review meal descriptions and ingredients to see whether the meals contain allergens your child is sensitive to. Feel free to send us an email if your child has any specific food allergies and we can work with you to create a meal plan that works for your family.
All ingredients we cannot wash are organic. These include spices and oils. We aim to procure all remaining produce locally and organic wherever possible. In the instances where we are unable to meet these standards, we wash our produce following a science-based washing procedure which removes nearly 100% of all external pesticides. We take great effort to ensure our ingredients are of highest quality and meet safety standards.
Sprout meals are purposefully low in salt, (sodium) in line with the FDA’s dietary guidelines for children. If your child consumes many fruits/vegetables and whole foods during the day, feel free to compensate with adding a little extra salt to taste. If your child is used to consuming salty foods such as pizza, we advise skipping the salt on our meals. Recommended Sodium Daily Intake: Toddler 1g /day = ~2.5g of salt Children: 1.5g /day = ~3.75g of salt
All of our meals are delivered cooled and vacuum sealed. Kept in your fridge at four degrees or cooler, they are safe to eat for up to 1 week after production (check the production label on the glass jar). If a glass jar has been opened but not finished you can keep it in the fridge for consumption within 48 hours.
Our glass jars are microwave and oven safe. To open a jar and break the vaccuum, hold the lid of the jar and pull the tab straight out, not up. To heat the food, remove the rubber tab, warm the food (lid on or off) directly in the glass jar either using a microwave or an oven. You can also transfer the food into a small pot and heat it on the stove top. Add in some water when heating meals to retain consistency and creaminess. Tip: You can also heat the meals in the morning and transfer them to a thermos to keep the food warm for a few hours so that your child can take them to school/nursery.
All our meals are perishable and must be refrigerated immediately upon receipt. Our meals specify the production and/or expiry date on the glass jars. Sprout meals are safe to consume for one week after production (assuming they are refrigerated at 4 degrees Celsius in a refrigerator).
Yes. Our meal glass jars are microwavable and oven safe but the rubber ring should be removed before heating.
