Frequently asked questions
What ages are the boxes aimed for?
Avocado Kids boxes are recommended for 4-12 yr. olds. Of course any age can join in. The young ones will need assistance from an adult, however the older kids will be able to make full recipes alone. Whatever the age, we encourage everyone to muck in and have fun!
Does my box come with ingredients?
Your avocado kids box does not come with ingredients. All of our recipes call for fresh ingredients, which would not have a long life expectancy for the month. We also want to encourage our kids to assist with the shopping, choosing their own ingredients. This is why we give you a full shopping list for all ingredients needed for that box.
If there is something you can’t get hold of, please let us know and we will find an alternative for you.
When will my order arrive?
