The supermarket says the box –  called Five Meals to Feed a Family of Four – is designed to provide quick, easy and affordable homemade meals that families can cook from scratch at home and make mealtimes a social, family experience. 

The offering is less than half the price of market leaders, Hello Fresh, Gousto and Mindful Chef, which cost between £47.75 and £82 for five days worth of dinners, or £2.98 to £6.83 per portion. 

Unlike other recipe boxes, the Morrisons family recipe box contains full retail-sized packs of ingredients. 

This means customers will also have ingredients left over at the end of the week – which they can use to cook more meals.
