This is how my children’s dinners go when I work in the office during the week. I text my babysitter and ask her to warm up either leftovers or take out something from the freezer. I don’t get home until after 6:30 and that’s too late for my kids to eat. But what if there was a better option – I can’t always make sure that I have leftovers in the fridge or if they’ll like it and I don’t want to depend on something from my freezer.

Yumble Kids recently reached out to me and asked me to try their meals. I thought it sounded like a good thing, because it sounded a lot healthier than what I can have my babysitter heat up when I’m not home. I prefer my kids to eat healthy, but making sure I have homemade meals already in the fridge doesn’t always happen. So I agreed to see what my family thought about Yumble Kids. The website was easy to navigate and I loved was intrigued why owner Joanna founded Yumble Kids – she wanted to make healthy nutritious meals for kids that are well-balanced and made with the freshest ingredients, while still keeping it fun and kid-friendly.
I let my children pick what they wanted. Once my youngest child read the words Parmesan Pops, he knew he wanted that. Because my kids love Macaroni and Cheese, we put that on the list. My kids also love tortellini, so that also went on the list. For the rest, we left it up to Yumble Kids to decide.
Check out our unboxing and what we thought of the meals:
When your meals come, simply stick them in your fridge. I was thrilled that even after 12 hours of sitting in my apartment mail room that everything was still cold. The package that your food comes in is recyclable – which is just another reason that I am a huge fan of Yumble Kids.
The clear winners were the Chicken Parm Pops and the Rainbow Tortellini. My youngest child picked this out on the Yumble Kids website and he lasered in right on the Chicken Parm Pops and was so excited when they came. He wouldn’t share them with his sister. I was actually surprised he dipped the Chicken Parm Pops in the red sauce, as my kids don’t always like red sauces. Also, I loved that the Tortellini had a mixture of green beans and chickpeas on the side. It was a great way to get veggies and protein in.
My daughter and older son fought over the rainbow tortellini.
They also really liked the Fiesta Fingers. It was perfect with the cornflake crust and everything in their container was devoured.
My kids liked the Macaroni and Cheese, but they didn’t love it. They are pretty used to the brand of boxed macaroni and cheese that I usually make – so I understood why they didn’t enjoy the fresh made as much. I don’t consider this a fail, it’s just not what they are used to.
They also didn’t really like the protein poppers – however, I LOVED them and got to enjoy them for myself. Maybe it was because I’ve been eating really cleanly for the past month, but these were absolutely amazing. I would definitely order more for me. These high protein raw oat balls are sweet and chewy and make the perfect breakfast or midday snack. They’re packed with protein, grains, and healthy fats. Stick an order in for you, you’ll thank me later.
I loved the sweet and sour meatballs — which fit the way I am eating now (please make bigger meals, please!).
That brings me to another point. The size of the meals is great for smaller kids – like 9 and under. However, if you have a kid that’s older than 9, you may want to order them two meals. I’d like to see a bigger size for older kids, because as a parent who works out of the house, I would order this regularly.
Yumble Kids is a winner. This is a smart idea and I was actually very happy with how it was executed. It arrived cold after being shipped and sitting in my apartment’s mail room for over 12 hours. There were clear instructions on how to warm up the meal (they tell you what to take out when you warm it up). You can also warm up multiple different meals at once – you just put your oven at 325 degrees for 8-10 minutes, right in the packaging. If the thought of putting plastic in your oven (I promise you, it didn’t melt), just pop it in the oven safe container of your choice. Plus the packaging was eco-friendly and there were activity sheets for the kids + cute coins as incentives (we explain this in our video).
Tip: Let your kids pick out what they want to eat. Encourage them to expand what they may usually order and try new things.
