What's Cooking

27 April 2016
Made with LOVE


Here at Umatie, we take great care in sourcing only the very best ingredients for our baby and kiddie meals.

We use only the freshest fruit and veggies, high-quality free-range meat from a reputable butchery and loads of fresh herbs and gentle spices for great combinations of foodies for your little one. From super smooth to slight texture... to coarse and chunky... to wholesome meals for kiddies. Loads of yummy meals to choose from! Buy some from our new mini shop in Stellenbosch :)

Yummy Baby & Kiddie Meals
to your door!

Umatie cooks yummy and nutritious baby and kiddie meals for your little one to enjoy. Our baby range is suitable for babies from when they first start weaning and our kiddie range for kiddies from 18 months up to the age of 5 years. We make weaning effortless in order to help busy parents spend more time with their family.

You can order our balanced weekly meal planners for ease of use (with a menu to stick on your fridge) or order from our individual baby and kiddie meals to suit your little one’s needs. We take great care in cooking our Umatie meals and we’re proud to say that our meals are not mass-produced.

We cook our meals in small batches and freeze them to lock in all the goodness, with a guaranteed freshness for up to 8 weeks.

We absolutely do not add any sugar or salt to our baby meals and certainly don’t add any preservatives or additives. We do add a teeny bit of pink salt and brown sugar to some of our kiddie meals to offer a well-rounded, scrumptious meal.

Umatie Packaging

We have searched high and low for packaging that’s earth-friendly and safe to use for babies. Our food containers are 100% recyclable, biodegradable and compostable. Our natural packaging - sleeve, bowl and lid - are freezer friendly and microwave safe, making our packaging completely eco- and baby-friendly.

And if you’re wondering what Umatie stands for? When Judi was a baby she loved tomatoes but couldn’t pronounce “tamatie” (Afrikaans for “tomato”) properly and instead asked her mommy to please give
her “Umatie”. heart
