We love ordering a regular fruit and vegetable delivery box. Every fortnight, we order from The Fruitful Box and are never disappointed. They are a local business on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and offer two generous produce boxes, fresh from local farmers. Customers can order a large $65 box with delivery included or pickup the medium $45 box from Narrabeen. More recently, customers can order a large organic box for $80. Their boxes include a mix of super fresh fruit and vegetables including many of the basic staples. Each box includes plenty of apples, oranges, potatoes, tomatoes, onions, bananas, garlic, lettuce, capsicum, avocado and so much more. They also include a litre of freshly squeezed orange juice, berry yoghurt and a loaf of bread. We like to add on 10 free range eggs for an extra $5 and you can also choose to add on local honey.
It’s so easy. Customers can easily order online through their website and receive delivery or pickup on Wednesdays. Weekly or fortnightly ordering with no subscription required.
The produce is seriously fresh and great value. Read on to find out our top five reasons why we think that every family should order a regular fruit and vegetable box.
 Save time and money
Fruit and vegetables make up a large part of our weekly grocery shop. Delivery is hugely convenient for us because we find it really difficult to carry a toddler up three flights of stairs and the shopping. Ordering to our door saves us time spent at the shops too. We don’t have to go as often and we end up buying less. Going to the supermarket for a few things usually turns into many extras that weren’t on the list. The Fruitful Box is AMAZING value for the price. The produce is super fresh, has a longer shelf life, and costs far less than the produce at the supermarket.
 Eat healthier
A fridge full of produce and a fruit bowl overflowing certainly keeps healthy eating on our mind. We are never short of a healthy option now that we are ordering The Fruitful Box. Hello massive salads, veggie soups and green smoothies! Produce coming from the local farmers market means eating seasonal and fresh. You can certainly taste the difference in quality.
 Teach young ones real food
When we receive our delivery, Phoenix gets excited to pull everything out of the box and transfer it into the fridge. I love teaching him the names of all the fruits and vegetables and it’s a great way to encourage him to eat a variety of colours. Supermarket shelves contain too many packaged “food” items. It’s important for our little ones to learn what real food is. We shouldn’t be telling our kids to “eat their vegetables” like it’s a punishment; rather offer fruit and vegetables as meals and snacks, just as we do other food groups. Children might resist textures and tastes sometimes, but there are many ways to sneak these healthy ingredients into yummy recipes.
 Support local farmers
It is really amazing to support local. You are accessing produce at the peak of freshness. No long distance shipping, where produce is stimulated to ripen quicker or sitting in storage for weeks. Family farmers need your support. Large agricultural businesses dominate the food production and small family farms have a tough time competing.
 Better for the environment
On average, food travels a far distance before it gets into your hands. Large amounts of natural resources are required in the process and contributes to pollution. Conventional agriculture uses many more polluting processes than sustainable agriculture. Ordering a local fruit and vegetable box also reduces the abundance of plastic bag usage and largely lowers the amount of packaging. The Fruitful Box even reuses their delivery boxes each week.
