We are rooted in science. Our extensive library of research and our board of nutrition and pediatric experts guides everything we do.

Real Good

We fight the good fight. From reducing food waste to ensuring access to healthy options for all families. Yumi is committed to building a better world.

“I was fed up with the lack of options. Not just for my kids — for all kids.”

—CO-FOUNDER, CEO, ANGELA SUTHERLAND

When Angela became pregnant with her first child, she learned that scientists widely consider nutrition in the first 1,000 days to be the most important factor in development. She also learned about the lasting impact of specific nutrients, such as iron, calcium, and healthy fats, on a child’s neural, physical, and future metabolic health.

And yet, the working mom found no options at the grocery store she felt good about.

The aisles were dominated by shelf-stable options with years-long expiration dates that were high in fruit sugars and low in nutrition. Together, with her longtime friend Evelyn, a former WSJ and NYTimes journalist, the two built Yumi to support parents with nutrition-first meals and snacks for babies and toddlers with enriching content tailored to every developmental milestone.

Their goal is an easy, worry-free option that you can feel good about and to share knowledge that inspires a lifetime of healthy eating. They believe it is Yumi’s responsibility— and the responsibility of all food companies— to lead with science, to nourish with real foods, and to fight for a better tomorrow.
