Our Story

Whole­some Tum­mies is a fresh food com­pany on a mis­sion to pro­vide access to fresh, nutri­tious, and excit­ing foods for every child, every­where.  We are rev­o­lu­tion­iz­ing the lunch expe­ri­ence in schools across Amer­ica through our grass-roots fran­chise, WT Cafe.  Join our move­ment today and lead the change in your community!

As busy moms our­selves, we found we had a real need for quick and easy school lunches, but felt we had a respon­si­bil­ity to pro­vide our chil­dren with the right foods. Prior to the launch of Whole­some Tum­mies in 2007, an option that com­bined the two sim­ply did not exist. So it was out of neces­sity and our belief that the foods our chil­dren eat should nour­ish their grow­ing minds and bod­ies that we were inspired to start our company.

In terms of kids and the foods they eat, North Amer­i­can soci­ety seems to have got­ten off track somewhere.

Child­hood obe­sity rates have sky­rock­eted, and the inci­dence of type 2 dia­betes in our youth is higher than ever before. Blame the media, the fast-food indus­try, the hec­tic pace of today’s world – it doesn’t mat­ter. The fact is, the time for change is now.

It’s sim­ple. Kids need good food in order to grow. Their young, active bod­ies are hun­gry for nutri­ents. Their devel­op­ing minds and mus­cles are fueled by fresh, whole­some ingre­di­ents. And still, most com­mer­cially avail­able foods for chil­dren sorely lack the nutri­tion they require. It is Whole­some Tum­mies’ mis­sion to change that. Our goal is to pro­vide every child with the healthy foods they need.

We will do this by mak­ing nutri­tious meals avail­able to all chil­dren in the places they live and learn, and by mak­ing these meals fun, kid-centric and appealing.

We believe that good nutri­tion is crit­i­cal to our children’s devel­op­ment, and that healthy eat­ing habits estab­lished early can help pave the way to life­long health. We believe that by prepar­ing healthy foods in cre­ative ways, our chil­dren will dis­cover the joys of fresh, nat­ural foods and choose them con­sis­tently over less-healthy alternatives.
