While most meal delivery services focus on adult tastes and preferences, Yumble takes a different approach. These meals, which come fully cooked and can be heated in a microwave, are all about kids.
The founders of Yumble hope that kids will be involved in every step of this process, from logging in to select their own meals (hopefully resulting in more meals being eaten), to redeeming points and earning prizes.
While this service won’t solve the dinnertime dilemma of finding something the whole family will eat, it still could prove quite useful. Have a babysitter who doesn’t like to cook? No problem, if you have a few Yumble meals in the fridge. Have a picky lunch eater or one who wants something different every day? Yumble has meals that are specifically “lunchbox ready.”
Sample meals: Hot Chicken and Cornbread Dinner; Mighty Marinara Pasta Meal; Creamy Ranch Cheese Bagel Lunch
Cool fact: Yumble UP! meals offer larger portions and there are many meals intended for lunch that do not require heating. When looking at the weekly menu, you can filter for gluten-free, no milk, no soy, no egg, no sugar added and vegetarian options. Picky-eater-pleasers meals are also available, with options such as plain cheese ravioli with a side of organic broccoli.
Delivery fee: The cost ranges $6.99 –$9.99 per meal, depending on how many meals per week are ordered. You can skip a week or cancel at any time. See the website for further details.
