You may remember last summer when we reviewed Yumble Kids. We’re back with an update because they sent us some awesome new meals to try. As I’ve mentioned, I do love to cook, but I don’t always have the time. Sometimes I need to have the grandparents over to babysit and the last thing I want them to have to do is cook dinner for my lot. That’s where Yumble Kids comes in. I can order some meals and have them in the fridge. My kids are happy and it’s less work for the grandparents (or for me). Dinner Dilemmas Solved: Yumble Kids Adds New Meals + Discount Code
Here’s the thing, as a parent of a child with Type 1 Diabetes I always need to figure out the carbs in a meal so my son can give himself enough insulin to cover the meal. We had reviewed Yumble Kids right before my son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes so I was wondering if we could still order this for him. The good news is that Yumble Kids offers complete nutritional information, so I know exactly how many carbs are in each meal, as well as all ingredients. I was able to order a few faves for him in this order and he loved it.
I love the way that Yumble Kids is packed. Minimal packaging, recyclable boxes and reusable ice packs.
My daughter was really impressed with the rewards system — each time you order you get a colored coin and you can save those up and get rewards. They had the coins last year but it seems to have expanded and my daughter was excited.
Let’s get to what you really want to know — was the food just as good as last year?
The S’Mac and Cheese went over very well (pictured below on the left). This mac and cheese (made with butternut squash!) is baked into a cupcake form to create a delicious (and fun!) utensil-free meal. This was served with cheesy broccoli tots, which my kids also liked. However, I have to say that the Gobble Meat Up (photo on the right) was an even bigger hit with my oldest son and I. This is something that I would cook for myself and it was actually kid-friendly also.
My daughter loved the Protein Pack and the Holy Moly Ravioli. My daughter is only eating fish – no red meat, turkey, pork, or chicken, so having a vegetarian or pescatarian meal is a necessity. She had a lot of choices from meals from Yumble Kids, but these were her favorite ones. The Protein Pack is cheddar cheese cubes, freshly baked naan, edamame and their signature Protein Poppers. I didn’t get a proper photo because my daughter devoured it, but here’s a photo from the Yumble Kids website.
The Holy Moley Ravioli (below) is ravioli are tossed in their homemade fresh tomato sauce, and they come with a side of dried apricots and chocolate dipped pretzels. My kids all fought over this meal — they wanted the chocolate pretzels and the ravioli. I had ordered two of these meals, so two out of my three kids were happy. And while it doesn’t look so pretty in the picture below, I can assure you that it was devoured. My kids usually won’t eat a red sauce, but they enjoyed this one.
My little guy loved the chicken pops last time and heartily enjoyed the chicken pops, served with jasmine rice and honey glazed carrots.
However, he did want the chocolate pretzels that his sister had with her dinner that night. Luckily she gave him one.
For a kid 11 and above, I would like to see a choice of larger size meals. My son is 12 and even last year, he had to have a meal and a half (or two meals) to feel full.
So, head on over to Yumble Kids and let them know you saw our review! At Yumble, we use fresh natural ingredients to make healthified versions of meals your kids already love.
We were sent samples to try out the new meals. We were not compensated for this post, but we are now an affiliate because we love them so much and your purchase price is not affected by this.
