As the festive season approaches, new research by meal kit delivery service HelloFresh, reveals how Aussies are really feeling about entertaining at home this year with one quarter (24%) saying planning a festive meal is the most stressful part of the season


As the cost of living crisis continues to impact Aussies, nearly half (41%) admit to spending more money on food over the holiday period than at any other time of the year. Data from Roy Morgan also reveals that spending on food is projected to increase by 2.4% this Christmas season, mainly due to supply input increases. While 26% of Australians wish they didn’t have to go grocery shopping over the Christmas period.  


To help budding cooks ace their festive feasts, HelloFresh is bringing back its popular Festive Faves recipes and Christmas Box to reduce stress without sacrificing flavour this holiday season.
