Healthy Meals for Kids

There is no denying that kids love snacks. This is especially true as they’re growing and their small tummies need more frequent meals. It’s important that parents understand how to choose healthy snacks for kids that provide the nutrition needed for their rapidly developing minds and bodies. However, it’s also important that healthy, kid-friendly snacks be easy to prepare and take on-the-go.

Our mission is to make mealtime stress-free for parents, while providing healthy meals for kids that they’ll love. What that means is nutritious meals delivered straight to your door, with customizable features and fun activities that make the entire Yumble experience fun for kids and convenient for parents.

explaining why toddlers are picky eaters

Why are Toddlers Picky Eaters?

For most parents, toddlerhood can feel like an interminable era of “no.” Whether they are refusing to wear a jacket in subzero temperatures, brush their teeth, or eat their dinner, toddlers are often saying “no” and pushing the limits of their parents’ patience. When it comes to food, this can be particularly concerning as the more toddlers refuse (or throw, or spit out) a variety of foods, the more parents worry that their toddlers are not getting the nutrition they need. Here at Yumble, we may not be able to get your toddler to put on their jacket when it’s freezing (but believe us that we’ve been there) but we can provide some advice and reassurance when it comes to understanding why toddlers are picky eaters.
