Is a picky eater?

Even the pickiest of dogs enjoy the benefits of a fresh diet, with fresh meals rarely receiving a turned-away nose! In our experience, even the pickiest of dogs have liked one, if not all, of NomNomNow's fresh cooked recipes.

When determining what to order for your picky eater, we suggest selecting a recipe with a protein they typically enjoy (for example, if your dog is more likely to eat something with beef, start with our Heartland Beef Mash for your first week!). You can view all of our fresh dog food recipes here.

In your first order, we will provide samples of every one of our other recipes so your pup can give them all a taste test, and you can determine which other flavors your picky eater may like in the future!

Recipe Rotation

After your first order, we highly recommend our Recipe Rotation feature for picky pups. With this feature, you can receive a different recipe with every order. Plus, receiving unique ingredient and nutrient profiles can provide health benefits as well!

  • To turn this feature on, simply visit your NomNomNow account, turn Recipe Rotation 'on', and select the recipes your pup liked that you would enjoy included in your rotation.
  • You can update this at any time, but please remember our 12pm noon PST deadline on Thursdays for changes you'd like to see reflected in the following week's order! 

If you'd like to learn more, here's a bit from our Veterinary Nutritionist, Dr. Justin Shmalberg, on how all of NomNomNow's healthy dog food recipes have been optimized to be nutritious, and delicious, to appease even the pickiest of eaters!
