Good for baby.
Good for all.
Yumi is a comprehensive science-based early childhood meal delivery program that provides over 60 varieties of chef-curated and nutritionally dense baby meals made with fresh, organic ingredients and high-quality superfoods. Our mission is to provide parents with all the necessary resources to maximize the nutrition and health of their babies, particularly during their first few years of life.
Our team of pediatricians, nutritionists and chefs intelligently design every meal, to pack the most nutrients and flavor into every spoonful. We spent thousands of hours researching, taste-testing and generally geeking-out so you don’t have to. Unless you want to - if so, we’re hiring.
Parenting is hard enough. So we make everything easy - from ordering to shipping to meal planning to eating to cleaning up. Even our weekly deliveries are color-coded so it’s easy to keep things fresh.
Giving babies the best, also means caring about the world they grow up in. We donate all of our unused perishable food to Impact LA, a local non-profit that helps feed those in need. Plus our boxes, trays and jars are all curbside recyclable, our insulation is compostable and our ice packs are reusable.
A Message from our Founders
We started this company because Angela is a giant nerd. You see, when she became pregnant with her first child, Elodie, she spent months researching nutrition. She discovered that scientists consider nutrition in the first 1,000 days to be the most important environmental factor in development. Babies’ brains, their senses, their fat cell production, and their proclivity for sweets are all shaped during this time. And yet, despite this overwhelming research, there were no convenient options for parents who wanted fresh, nutritious, and yummy meals for their baby.
We got angry. We got inspired. We quit respectable jobs. We founded Yumi.
Whether you use us for all or some of your meals, cook, or buy other brands, we hope our content and products inspire and empower you – and somehow make your life a little bit easier.
