Youfoodz also breaks this down into cost per serving to outline how much mealtime is costing you, with per serving costs ranging between $8 and $14.
- Youfoodz also has a $9.99 shipping cost on all deliveries.
How do I order Youfoodz?

To place an order, you’ll have to sign up to Youfoodz via the website, creating an account and filling in your details. Once you’ve signed up, you can place an order by selecting the meal quantity and types.
When and where does Youfoodz deliver?
Youfoodz delivers to all states and territories in Australia, although is only available in set locations and cities. However, Youfoodz allows you to search for your postcode on their website to see if deliveries are available in your area.
Youfoodz also delivers seven days a week, with multiple delivery times available to choose from, to allow you to select the most convenient option for your food to be delivered, with tracking also available to help you keep an eye on your food. Delivery days and addresses can also be changed via your Account Settings, with your order also able to simply be dropped at your door, allowing you to come home to your meals (mostly) sorted.
- Youfoodz unfortunately does not offer next-day delivery due to their food being prepared and cooked in-house.
Do I need to be home to receive a Youfoodz delivery?
You don’t need to be home to receive your meals. Each order is delivered in a polystyrene box with ice packs, allowing your meals to stay cool for a period of time, with special delivery instructions able to be left, allowing you to indicate an area in which you’d like the box to be left. However, Youfoodz doesn’t collect your meal boxes after you’re done with them, but recommend recycling them.
How long does Youfoodz last?

Can I lose weight on Youfoodz?
Youfoodz does offer a ‘Low Calorie’ plan for you to choose, with nutritional information on its meals for the week available on the website, allowing you to factor in just how many calories you’re playing with. However, it’s always recommended talking to your doctor before making any decisions in regards to losing weight.
Are there any vegetarian meals?
