Meal Prep for Kids: Meet Yumble

Jun. 24, 2019Do you ever cook dinner for your preschooler, and then wonder why you bothered? You’re not alone — and Yumble has your back.



Kids are freaking picky, and it’s enough to make this mom/AMAZING chef wonder how the heck hers are even still alive.

I mean seriously, I don’t compute the desire not to eat something. Like, at all.

But nonetheless, as a mom to a preschooler who can apparently burn 326 million calories in a day on three chicken nuggets and a Clif Bar, I’ve combed the earth looking for things my four year old will actually eat.

Because for some freaking horrifying reason, not only do some kids eat very little, but they always gravitate towards the most processed foods.

Always.

When selling ‘green milkshakes’ and protein pancakes aren’t working anymore, it’s time to get creative in the kitchen. You know, with all of your spare time.

Thankfully, Yumble’s been there, and they have a solution.

 

Meal Prep for Kids Made Easier: Meet Yumble

There are dozens of meal delivery services for adults, but Yumble is the only one I’ve ever seen for tiny humans, and I’m in love with the idea.

Yumble was founded by a mom on a mission to make sure her kids got healthy meals every day, and that she didn’t spend hours in the kitchen accommodating dietary preferences. In pursuit of healthy children and taking something off the modern mom’s plate, Yumble was born.

After two years of perfecting her recipes, Joanna opened Yumble to the public to uproarious support — and now we’re all waiting with bated breath to see which city she comes to next.

How It Works

Yumble meals are delivered weekly right to your door and made with fresh, real ingredients — no artificial colors, preservatives, or junk.

And seriously, these meals look so good. With side dishes that include fresh produce, protein poppers, and fresh vegetables and entrees that’ll save you HOURS in the kitchen, Yumble is good enough for a mom to eat.

For right now, Yumble is available to the majority of the west coast, as well as much of the midwest (lucky you guys!). For the rest of us on the western half of the state, we wait with bated breath (and picky AF kids) for Yumble to start delivering in our zip code.

Your move Yumble — we love you!
