E26: “Putting the Yum into your child’s mealtime” with Shark Tank star and founder of Yumble, Joanna Parker

October 12, 2022

On today’s Bizzimumzi episode, Ashley is joined in conversation with Joanna Parker. As a stay-at-home-mom, she struggled to get healthy food on the table every single day for her kids. Joanna and her husband, David, realized that if she was struggling with this problem, then other people probably were too. They decided to start Yumble—a healthy prepared kids’ meal subscription service that turns meal time into something easy and fun for both kids and busy parents. Joanna really found a love and passion for what she calls her fourth baby, Yumble. With great success from famed TV show, Shark Tank, Joanna was able to gain a lot of interest for her new found meal prep company.

In this episode we discuss how lifelong eating habits are established in childhood. Joanna firmly believes that the younger we teach our children healthy eating habits the stronger that foundation is for them as grownups. Healthy eating habits don’t develop in one meal (just like a diet doesn’t work by refusing one donut), and parents must be both patient and willing to help their children on the journey of healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle. Together we can make American children healthier and families happier, one meal at a time.

She also gives us the details behind how Yumble works and why a subscription model was key for her business, what it’s like to work with her husband, Yumble’s plans for the future, and more.
