Are your meals fresh?

Each week, we shop, prep and cook your babies meals using the same preparation methods you'd use at home. So skip the planning, shopping, chopping, steaming, slicing, boiling, baking. We NEVER use pre-processed purees like other baby brands. 
Our meals are freshly made and stay good in the fridge for 5 days, 3 months in the freezer and 24 hours once opened. 
Our jars are BPA FREE, MICROWAVABLE and FREEZER SAFE. To freeze your jars, just place them in the freezer and, once you're ready to serve, let the jar defrost in the fridge and be sure to serve within 24 hours of unfreezing. For faster defrosting, you can microwave for about 15 sec at a time, until you come to the desired warmth you like. Alternatively, you can run the jar under warm water to unthaw 

What size are the Yumi jars?

Your purees and blends will arrive in 4oz. BPA-Free, reusable Jars

Are your jars Microwavable and FREEZER SAFE?

Yes our BPA FREE jars are not only freezable, but if your baby is fussy and you’ve been busy and need to hurry up and feed your baby, you can throw our microwave safe jars into the microwave and microwave at least 10 secs at a time until you reach the desired warmth you and baby desire.

Is anything added to help the meals stay fresh longer?

No. We are proud to say that we do not use any preservatives or fillers. When we say freshly made, we mean it. All meals are good for up to 5 days, just as they would be if you made them in your own kitchen.

Are your meals plant based? 

All of our Babyblends are plant-based so there are no meat options. We've carefully designed the blends to ensure the meals are well balanced and nutritionally optimized for a baby's growing body. So while we don't use meat, many of our blends do contain protein from plant-based sources such as legumes, grains and seeds.

What about food allergies?

We understand how intimidating it can be to introduce new foods to your baby.  And how fun and delicious it can be!


Did you know that research shows that introducing your baby to potentially allergenic foods like eggs, peanuts, milk, etc can help PREVENT food allergies by up to 80%?  


Although, with anything, we recommend talking to your pediatrician about introducing allergens early and often, especially if you have a history of severe allergens. This can help prevent your little one from experiencing your same nightmares.  Consistent communication with your child’s doctor is always a best practice.

Did you know that research shows that introducing your baby to potentially allergenic foods like eggs, peanuts, milk, etc can help PREVENT food allergies by up to 80%?  

Our commitment to our families has always been to follow the science and research and provide a diverse array of options for every family.  Whether you're vegan, vegetarian, omnivorous, dairy-free, looking for early allergen introduction, or looking to avoid known food allergies -- we got you.

When visiting our menu, you can filter meals to view Allergen Introduction meals.

How much food does my baby need each day?

Babies 4-6 months: time to introduce single-ingredient purees.  Baby will start with a few bites and gradually be able to eat 1 container per day.
This is a fun time to try new foods, but it can also be frustrating when baby spits it out or refuses foods.  Be patient and know that this is normal.  Keep trying – it’s worth the effort! 

Babies 6-8 months:  2 meals per day will deliver 100% daily nutrition.* 

Babies 8-12 months: 3 meals per day delivers 100% daily nutrition.*

Who Dr. Sebi?

Sebi claimed that disease is a result of mucus and acidity in the body and argued that diseases cannot exist in an alkaline environment. His list of foods, which includes a variety of alkaline ingredients claims to detoxify the body of disease and restore alkalinity. The diet restricts animal products of any kind, and overall focuses on vegan eating, but with much stricter rules. For example, it restricts seedless fruits and only permits Sebi's approved list of "natural growing grains."

How do I prepare the purées? 

You can thaw the purées in the refrigerator overnight, in a warm water bath ( run warm water over jar or place jar in container with warm water)  or microwave on 10- 15 second intervals

Is your food cooked and ready to eat? 

Yes! Our food is fully cooked. All you have to do is thaw in the refrigerator overnight or pull it out of the freezer and microwave until heated through. Most of our meals can be ready to serve in under three minutes. 

Can I order for curbside pickup? 

Yes! Order ahead online and select Store Pickup. After you receive your pickup notification, you can call the store at 317-288-9314-753-0393 when you arrive, and we will bring it out. 

Do I get a refund if my baby doesn't like what I ordered?  A happy baby with a full belly is our number one priority. However, we do not issue refunds if your baby doesn't like a certain purée. Just remember it could take up to 20 times for a baby to like a new food, so keep trying!
