Frequently Asked Questions
Our confinement menu is thoughtfully developed with Thomson’s in-house team of Lactation Consultants, Traditional Chinese Medicine Physicians, and Dieticians. Each recipe is carefully crafted down to the ingredient choices and herbal formulations for improved postpartum recovery.

Every meal comes with a serving of meat/fish, vegetable, double-boiled soup, rice, and complimentary Longan & Red Dates tea.
Our meals are freshly cooked and delivered on time twice daily right to your doorstep at no additional cost.
We offer various package options from 7-Day to 35-Day. Read our guide to decide which package best fits your needs.
Our 28-Day Lunch and Dinner Menu consists of two cycles:
- First Cycle (Days 1 to 10) will consist of mild recipes to aid digestion.
- Second Cycle (Days 11 to 28) will offer rich and flavourful dishes including Braised Pig’s Trotter in Black Vinegar, Hong Zao Pork Ribs and Double Boiled Black Chicken Soup with D.O.M.
Our meals are served on a rotational basis, hence your first meal may not correspond to Menu 1. For instance, your first meal could be Menu 6. As such, your subsequent meals will be Menu 7, 8, 9 and 10 before looping to Menu 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 to complete the First Cycle.
The same applies for the Second Cycle.

We aim to make your mealtimes easy and enjoyable. Our meals come in thermal containers to keep the food warm for consumption, so simply open and enjoy!
Please note that our thermal containers are not suitable to be used in the microwave. Charges apply should the containers be damaged due to negligent usage.
We know that it’s not easy taking care of a newborn, so leave the dishes to us. Simply pour away any leftovers in the thermal containers and place them in the carrier and we will take care of the rest.
Each meal is designed for a single serving.
Yes, simply indicate your preference to exclude pork and pork innards when ordering and we will replace them with chicken and fish dishes. However, please note that our soups are pork-based broths and only the pork meat will be removed.
Also, dishes may be repeated more frequently due to the removal of pork dishes.
Vegetarian menu is currently unavailable.
Our meals may contain nuts, and therefore are not suited for those with nut allergies.

Yes, our meals are suitable for miscarriage recovery. Simply select “Post-miscarriage care” as your reason for purchase when ordering and we will remove herbs that promote lactation from your meals.
Our dishes and soups may contain a small amount of tonic wine. Consuming tonic wine during postpartum can help expel the cold from the body and promote blood circulation. In our preparation, the tonic wine is boiled down to ensure evaporation, so you can be assured that it is safe for consumption.
Nursing mothers are advised to consume foods with alcohol after breastfeeding or at least 1 to 2 hours before breastfeeding.
We currently do not offer Halal-certified meals.
Having your meals on time is crucial for a smooth recovery process. Kindly refer to the label on your meal for the “best consumed by” timing to enjoy its full flavours.

We will defer delivery of additional Pig’s Trotters in Black Vinegar on the days that it is included as part of the original menu, so that you will not receive two servings on the same day. The Pig’s Trotters in Black Vinegar add-on is only available for delivery from Monday to Saturday.
