The team at the meal kit review, always gives in-depth tests and reviews, based on genuine first-hand experience. As Yumble is geared towards children, in order for us to give honest and relevant feedback, we decided to recruit some kids to the team!
We tested the Yumble service by using our own editor-in-chief, Lee Levy, and her two young daughters. We have reported their experiences and feedback in this Yumble review article.

Who is Yumble for?
Yumble is a meal delivery service offering meals that are designed to fit the needs of little ones, aged 1 to 12. The service is suitable for busy moms and dads, who want their kids to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, but who don’t always have the time to cook.

- 12 meals per week – best recommended for 2 kids in the family

The Yumble menu
The Yumble menu contains around 20 meals to choose from every week. All the meals are specifically designed for kids and are full of regionally sourced fruits and vegetables and other organic ingredients. The menu is super friendly and includes lovely colorful pictures that will make you wish you were still a kid!
The menu includes useful information on each meal advising if the meal is suitable for diets that are vegetarian, gluten-free, egg-free, soy-free or milk-free. The menu also highlights the main benefits of each meal.
Benefits can include items such as hidden veggies, top-rated meals, plant-based meals for vegetarian and vegan kids, organic ingredients and more. All that information makes the menu very easy to use.
To be honest, we thought that all the meals looked super tempting and delicious. I selected the meals along with my 7-year-old, and she had more than enough to choose from!
From looking at the Yumble menu, it really looks like the company is invested in developing healthy and positive eating habits for our children!
Following are a few examples of the great meals available on the Yumble menu:
- Better Chicken Nuggets – organic & gluten-free chicken breast nuggets, served with a side of mashed potatoes, organic corn, and green garbanzo beans which are full of fiber, antioxidants, and protein.
- Original Chicken Pops – all-natural ground chicken hand-rolled meatballs on lollipop sticks, served with deliciously sweet, creamy corn and red rice. These are a great option to make mealtime fun for your kids!
- Handmade Pizza Pocket – as good as it sounds! This dish is reported to be in the Yumble top 5 since day one on the menu! This is served with yummy mashed potatoes and a mix of freshly picked baby green chickpeas and organic corn.
- Bowl of Yays Pasta – Made with an organic tomato marinara sauce, that is also full of extra healthy vegetables.
Inside the Yumble eco-friendly box
What’s great about the Yumble kids meal box is that everything is beautifully labeled and well organized. Each meal comes in a separate tray and is wrapped in a branded sleeve that contains information like the name of the meal, heating instructions, and nutritional facts.
We were impressed to know that the packaging used by Yumble is fully recyclable and made from 100% recycled paper fibers. The Yumble box uses the latest in packaging development technology and is a much more eco-friendly and sustainable option than the alternative of foam coolers. The trays used for the meals themselves are made from PP #5 plastic and can be recycled with standard curbside recycling, along with the paper sleeves of each meal.
Yumble website and ordering process
The Yumble website is easy to navigate, and the registration process is straightforward and user-friendly. The website is clean and clear, with lovely additions of colors and images that children will love. On the website, you can find extra information about Yumble and their mission, the weekly menu, pictures and information about each meal, pricing information and general FAQs.

If for some reason you forget to choose the meals for the following week, there is no need to worry.

Another thing we liked about the Yumble website is that it gives you the easy option to cancel your subscription online.

We believe that says a lot about how confident Yumble are about the quality of their product which is always appreciated.
The Yumble quality of ingredients
We were super impressed by the quality of the meals we received from Yumble. All meals met the Yumble promise to include only seasonal, fresh, natural, and nutritious ingredients. The Yumble menu offers organic ingredients and humanely raised, antibiotic and hormone-free meats whenever possible.
It is also important to note that the Yumble culinary team is very aware of any allergy and dietary restrictions and have created a menu that provides enough variety to choose from every week. The company makes sure to clearly mark any meals that are gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free, or vegetarian.
Please note that the Yumble meals are not prepared in a nut-free, gluten-free, lactose-free or egg-free kitchen. Due to this, the company is unable to guarantee that cross-contamination will not occur, so their meals are not recommended if your child has a severe life-threatening allergy!
