Weight Watchers delivers fresh produce directly to your door
Weight Watchers has unveiled its latest innovative offering, the WW Smart Kitchen food box, to provide you with everything you need to whip up healthy, delicious and balanced meals from scratch.
With over five decades of experience helping people to reach their weight loss goals, Weight Watchers is the first weight-management brand to launch a weekly subscription-based healthy food box service.
Available to both members and non-members, WW Smart Kitchen has been designed to simplify healthy eating and guides people to make healthier food choices. No foods are off limits with Weight Watchers and the new service proves that cooking from scratch can be both convenient and simple.
In partnership with fresh food delivery company Bearfaced Groceries, Weight Watchers is working with top UK butchers and farmers to create boxes that contain the freshest and finest ingredients.
Delivered straight to your door, at a time that suits you, the tasty, wholesome box of delicious ingredients together with recipe cards means you can feel great about serving your family and friends healthy meals.
All recipes have been developed by Weight Watchers and specialist chefs, with the SmartPoints values of all meals calculated by nutritionists to ensure that the service fits seamlessly into Weight Watchers flexible programme, whether you are a Weight Watchers member or just interested in healthy eating.
The unique and proven Weight Watchers SmartPoints plan guides people towards more nutritious, healthier choices, with all foods allocated a SmartPoints value based on calories, saturated fat, sugar and protein.

The courier messages on the day of delivery to let me know when the box will be arriving and even if you’re not at home, it can be left in a safe and dry place ready for your return. The ingredients are so fresh and really well packaged. It makes my week and sticking to the Weight Watchers plan so easy – everything is portion controlled, has a SmartPoints value and is absolutely delicious.”
