A balanced diet is an important part of good health, and a variety of foods should be consumed in order to obtain the nutrients that the body needs to function properly. Many companies have developed meal delivery services that often include three meals, as well as snacks, which are formulated to be nutritionally balanced. Many people who are on a diet use these services in order to receive food that is already prepared, while also being healthy. When choosing a meal delivery plan, the type of diet being followed should be considered, as well as a person's budget for the service. Some services also offer meals for people with medical conditions, allergies, or other special dietary needs.

A meal delivery plan may be a good option for a person with food allergies. When one has allergies, food shopping and cooking can be difficult, but a meal delivery plan can accommodate all types of situations. Under such a plan, the food that is delivered should not contain any allergens, and, to ensure safety for those with severe sensitivities, many companies can provide food that is made in a secured facility so that no contamination occurs even during preparation. This type of special meal plan can be important for people with gluten or nut allergies.

Many people are required to follow a special diet due to a medical condition, such as diabetes, and some choose a dietary lifestyle, such as vegetarianism or veganism. In these cases, a meal delivery plan that specializes in these types of diets should be selected. Many companies have specific plans that fit the dietary needs of these customers.
