Yumble will pitch their company to the sharks on Sunday’s episode of Shark Tank with the goal of getting a deal. Yumble was created to help tackle the issue of picky children. Many parents struggle with what to give their children, and Yumble hopes to help with this issue.
Yumble works as a subscription service, much like Hello Fresh. But the kicker here is that you don’t have to cook. Only some of the meals have to be heated a bit before consumption.
The meals are created for kids ages 1 through 12 and they are allergy-friendly, gluten-free, and serve a long list of dietary issues, such as egg-free, nut-free, dairy-free and vegetarian.
Meals include pasta with sauce, eggs and hash browns, rice and meatballs, mac n cheese, pizza pockets, mashed potatoes with chicken pops, fries, turkey cheddar pinwheels, enchiladas and much more.
The company was founded by Joanna, a mom of three who struggled to get food on the table for her picky children. As she writes on the website, it was impossible for her to cook meals for them that they wanted.
She spent two years creating recipes that are healthy and kid-friendly. She took the classics that children love, and simply added healthier components. The meals come precooked and parents simply pop them in the microwave to heat up and then serve. It’s meant to take the stress away from parents, who truly struggle with picky kids.
Currently, the Yumble meal plans are only available through the company’s website. Right now, 6 meals per week cost $47.94 or about $7.99 per meal. 12 meals per week are cheaper at $89.88 a week. Three meals per week are $167.76 and you save about $1 per meal compared to the cheapest option.
People who purchase the meal plans can choose their own meals, including choosing from a long list of dinner and lunch options.
Shark Tank airs Sundays at 9/8c on ABC.
