Order and get it delivered: Homemade and healthy food for babies and toddlers

May 3, 2016

If you want food for your babies and toddlers that doesn't come from a jar, that is homemade, free from additives and preservatives, free range, low in salt and sugar, and that tastes good,  but you don't have the time or inclination to make it, then you might be interested in Yumm Tums.

Yumm Tums

It's a food business in Joburg that makes and delivers delicious babies and toddlers' food that saves you time, and is the solution to "What should I make the kids for supper tonight?"Yumm Tums was started by mom Skye Kitching, a full-time working mom with a fussy toddler who refused to eat any veggies. "I realised the need for a food range that took everyday kiddies favourites and incorporated a large range of vegetables that have been 'secretly' added in order to coerce our mini humans to get a well balanced diet… And so Yumm Tums Frozen Ready Meals was born," says Skye.

Skye says on her website: "After many chats with like minded mothers it was clear that most parents desired the same thing -convenient, healthy, tasty, cost effective, fuss free meals for their little ones. Meals that did not come off a factory production run. Meals that tasted like the actual ingredients they are made with.

"We as parents just do not have enough hours in a day to think of meal plans, grocery lists and meal preparation. So Yumm Tums makes it a little easier so you are able to spend valuable time with your little ones while we take care of the rest."

And if you're thinking that frozen food might not be as healthy as food that's just off the stove or out the oven, think again. According to research, frozen food retains its nutrients as well as fresh versions, provided they are quick-frozen and packed in airtight containers.

The range comes in two categories: Little Tots (six to nine months) – 100ml, and Big Tots (9-12 months): 200ml.

I tasted some meals on the weekend, and by tasting, I mean I ate everything. The cottage pie and veggie-packed beef were fantastic, and I was happily surprised that the food was very flavoursome – a lot of toddler food is "dumbed down" and bland.
