Tummy Thyme offers two convenient options. Both involve delivery direct to your door (currently only in Los Angeles and Orange County). One is a Subscription service, while the other is our À La Carte service. We also offer Gift Certificates which can start with a one-off delivery (based on a minimum number of meals). These are also delivered to an address of your choice.
For more detailed A la carte pricing, please refer to our Order page
Go to Order from the drop down menu and select BABY or TODDLER. Then you can select: Subscription, A La Carte or Gift Certificate
A La Carte orders are delivered every Sunday.
Subscription orders are delivered every second Sunday. For your convenience and peace of mind, the Subscription service auto-renews until you advise us otherwise.
We will provide you with a two hour delivery window via email so you can plan your day. You will then also receive a confirmation text on the Friday before your delivery. Orders must be in by 8pm on the Wednesday before the next delivery day. Orders after this time will go out with the next cycle.
We currently only deliver in Los Angeles and Orange County.
All meals are delivered in an insulated freezer envelope. Food should be put into the freezer immediately upon delivery. For that reason, we WILL NOT leave food unattended on your doorstep. It’s important that you advise us as soon as possible if the delivery address has to change (by the Wednesday before your delivery day), otherwise we will have to charge an additional delivery fee if the food is delivered outside of the agreed window.
Not all baby food is created equal. Most pediatricians and nutritionists agree that lifelong eating habits are created in the first three years of a baby’s life. Therefore, introducing a variety of healthy and adventurous tastes and textures will set you up with a more adventurous foodie later in life. You can discover more on our Our Food page.
We are parents who go above and beyond to ensure that your children, as well as our own, receive the best quality baby food on the market. We are a small, bespoke company, which means that all of our food is handmade, without the need for large machinery and high processing. When you purchase shelf-stable baby food in store, it could have endured a two year journey from the time of manufacture. Are they convenient? Yes. Are they the gold standard for your baby? No. In order to meet the approved standard, these foods are heated to extremely high temperatures which can have an adverse effect on vital nutrients, enzymes, and healthy bacteria that pediatricians and nutritionists agree are critical for every baby’s healthy growth and development. It’s not unusual for pre-processed purees to be imported from overseas. These will probably have been processed, pre-cooked, and de-fibered. Check the label to see if these shelf-stable baby foods contain concentrates, preservatives, juices and/or fillers. Compare that to Tummy Thyme which only uses fresh, healthy, organic fruit and vegetables, purchased from trusted suppliers, without additives or preservatives, then manufactured in a certified commercial kitchen before being frozen prior to delivery. Why not insist on the healthiest option for you babies and toddlers?
Each baby is different. Some babies are ready as early as four months and others may not exhibit cues until six months or more. Where possible, consult your pediatrician or another trusted health professional to confirm that your baby is ready.
Once your baby has begun the weaning process, can sit on his/her own, and has experimented with a variety of singular ingredients and mastered the art of swallowing food, then it’s time.
Yes, as long as you cancel by the Wednesday before the Sunday delivery.
Our Signature Cube is approximately 4 ounces (similar to a store bought pouch). Follow your baby's cues. Some of our customers find one cube is the perfect size and others find their baby only needs half. For the hungriest of babies, some may need more. Once your cube is defrosted, it is refrigerator safe for two days. Only heat the portion of the cube that you need. Never refreeze a partially defrosted cube.
Nope! We leave it up to you to 'dress up' your baby’s food if you feel it needs it and your little one is ready. For example, some parents add mashed fruit for sweetness.
Our frozen meals are easy to prepare. Remove one cube directly from the freezer or defrost in the refrigerator overnight. The food can be heated on the stove top, or in the microwave if needed quickly. ALWAYS check the temperature of the food before feeding it to your baby. Refer to the instructions enclosed in your delivery.
Every Tummy Thyme Signature Cube is a complete meal. And in most cases, the 4oz will be enough to satisfy your baby. However, there is no reason to stop you adding other foods if you wish. Just remember to make sure that the consistency is appropriate for the age of the baby (puree, textured, chunky). If you prepare any food separately, make sure that it is the right temperature when you add it.
There is no reason why you can’t take Tummy Thyme with you on picnics, car trips or on your travels. The ONLY consideration is to keep our Signature Cubes frozen prior to preparing it for your baby or toddler. So you need to think about how to do that. For example, ice packs. Remember, once Tummy Thyme has defrosted you cannot re-freeze it. Once defrosted, the cubes are refrigerator safe for 2 days.
We do not use eggs, dairy, or nuts (with the exception of coconut) in our baby food and will make every effort to accommodate dietary restrictions. Some of our items do contain gluten, however we have alternatives to these items if your baby is avoiding this ingredient. We are a small, bespoke business, but will do our best to cater to your baby’s individual needs when possible.
Don’t be disheartened if your baby isn’t as enthusiastic about the meals as you. Research shows that it can take a baby up to 15 times of trying a food before we can be certain if they like it or not. From personal experience we can say that the more adventurous you are with exposing your baby to tastes and textures, the more adventurous he or she will become with food in later years.
Of course! Tummy Thyme is just as tasty for adults and kids as it is for babies and toddlers. In fact, we highly recommend that you integrate our foods with the family’s overall eating experience. For example, if you choose Potato, Carrot & Leak Soup, why not make the same for the rest of the family? Eating together is a very important part of the family ritual and can be a very positive experience.
All of our menu choices are based on the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines. We are always experimenting with food combinations. As dedicated foodies, what we make for you is what we feed our daughter. As you can see from photographs of our Signature Cubes, we think how food looks as well as how it tastes is important in building a positive relationship with food for our babies and toddlers.
Tummy Thyme is an online delivery service only. From time to time we participate in promotional opportunities with selected stores, but our direct to your door service means we avoid the on-costs that are typically associated with the retail chain. That means, quite simply, you buy Tummy Thyme at the best price possible.
Cancellation - You can cancel at any time as long as it is no later than the Wednesday prior to the Sunday of the first delivery in your monthly subscription.
Refund - If for any reason your order will be delayed, you will be notified by email and/or by phone. No refunds will be given for orders which are delivered within the same scheduled day. We will do our best for you to receive your order on time. If you are traveling or unable to accept delivery, please notify us 48-hours before a delivery day and we will reschedule it for you.
Your baby’s health is extremely important to you, as our daughter is to us. So we leave nothing to chance in our food preparation. Tummy Thyme products are created in a certified commercial kitchen in LA which has the appropriate health permits from local and the State of California health departments. Our food and its preparation meets the highest possible health and safety standards.
