I’m a mom of a 2-year-old son, and with my schedule, I’ve been able to make him dinner every night. However, is it an enjoyable, relaxing process? Not always. He’s a typical 2-year-old, and most of the time, he’s begging for dinner to be ready, throwing a tantrum, and I’m exhausted by the time the food hits the table.

So when I was introduced to Yumble, a prepared meal service for kids, I was immediately intrigued. While meal kit services have grown in popularity, kids’ services have been decidedly limited. Yumble was founded in 2017  by a mom of three who wanted to take the frustration out of meal planning and prepping by offering fresh, nutritious microwavable meals for kids who are 12 months to 12 years old. The meals are delivered weekly, and shipping is free.

Having dinner ready in less than 90 seconds seemed like a dream.  Out of personal preference, I’ve never microwaved a meal for my son before, so this would be a whole new experience for us.  

Yumble set me up with a one-week complimentary subscription. I ordered six meals for the week, and then served one to my son for dinner six days in a row.
