Healthy Creations is a woman owned business, founded in San Diego in 2007. The Take-and-Make meal kit program was designed to enable families to bring back the sit-down home cooked meal without the time consuming tasks of menu selection, shopping, preparing, measuring, slicing, dicing etc.

In 2013, following the proliferation of large, high volume, mass producing meal kit companies, Healthy Creations, under the ownership of Chef Julie Brailsford refocused on providing a personalized, custom service.

Our meals are individually hand assembled at our own licensed commercial kitchen facility in Vista, CA.
