Agatha Achindu grew up as a farmer’s daughter in Cameroon, West Africa. She only ate fresh organic food grown in her family’s gardens or purchased from local markets. When she came to the US, she brought this heritage with her, and chose not to adopt the convenient but industrialized American food system.
When her son, JZ, was born in Atlanta, like many moms she made weekly batches of food for him in her kitchen from fresh organic ingredients and froze it to use during the week. Unlike most moms, Agatha went the extra mile and started making baby food for other families in the community. She quickly became the ’go-to’ baby food chef, and was invited to teach seminars on healthy cooking and childhood nutrition in local hospitals to new and expecting moms. In September 2006, Yummy Spoonfuls® was born.
Renting space in a commercial kitchen, Agatha was able to keep up with demand for her products by supplying local specialty and natural food stores. In 2009, Cookie magazine picked Yummy Spoonfuls® as the #1 baby food in the US. Agatha’s baby food soon gained a loyal celebrity following, but Agatha wanted to make her products more accessible to working moms who didn’t have the time to make baby food. So she began a five-year search for a partner who shared her values and vision to make the wonderful organic taste and healthy nutrition of Yummy Spoonfuls® available to every family in the US.
When Agatha was introduced to Camila Alves in 2014, the search was over, and the path of Yummy Spoonfuls® was changed forever. They shook hands, formed a new company as 50/50 partners. Over the past two years, the partners have been hard at work to prepare Yummy Spoonfuls® for the national stage. Camila felt strongly that Agatha’s vibrant products should be showcased, so they struck on the idea of putting a clear window on the front of traditional baby-food pouches. The partners have been busy meeting with retail partners, organic farmers and suppliers, equipment and packaging suppliers, recruiting team members and spending time together in the kitchen to develop yummy new recipes.
Now Yummy Spoonfuls® is the perfect solution for parents who want to feed their children fresh, nutritious organic food. You will find it soon in the frozen section at Walmart.
I am a dedicated mother, entrepreneur and chef. As a child growing up in Cameroon, I ate only the freshest organic foods from my family’s gardens and local markets. Following my son’s birth in 2004, I struggled to find meals for my young son, Jared-Zane, which were equally delicious and nutritious. Determined, I took to my kitchen to create meals packed with healthy organic ingredients—and nothing else. Soon I began filling casual orders for friends and—in 2006— Yummy Spoonfuls® was born. I left my six figure job as an IT executive and started the company.
My baby food products soon gained a loyal celebrity following while winning over babies across the country through a few regional retailers and a national direct ship program. In 2014, I partnered with fellow mom and entrepreneur, Camila Alves, to expand Yummy Spoonfuls® and fulfill our collective vision of providing fresh, organic foods to babies and tots; what a blessing that continues to be. Today, I am a sought-after baby food expert who has appeared on CNN, Fox Business News, Essence.com, CBS, Style Network, People.com and more. I serve as the founder and Chief Yummy Officer for Yummy Spoonfuls®. Along with my most important roles of wife and mother, I fill my time outside of the kitchen conducting media engagements and healthy eating workshops across the country.
I was born in Brazil and raised in a family of farmers. I grew up with a strong connection to the tastes and aromas of freshly-picked ingredients. I remember climbing trees and eating sweet mangoes right off the branch. And yes, there’s truth to the story that I used to bolster my pocket money by selling surplus fruit on the roadside!
As a mother, I want the same healthy foundation for my three growing kids. When my children were babies, I spent countless hours making baby food in a messy kitchen, surrounded by fresh ingredients and bowls of purees. I thought there must be a simpler way to provide fresh, unprocessed, homemade organic food for babies and tots. Meeting Agatha was the answer to my prayers.
As a business-woman, I have learned a great deal about product development and innovation. I have also had the privilege to meet world-class experts and business leaders; I have relished the opportunity to partner with Walmart to bring organic frozen foods for toddlers to the frozen foods aisle nationwide. I pride myself as being a connector – of dots and of people. It’s exciting to be able to have put all these elements together on my journey with Agatha.
I am thankful to have the opportunity of working with such a gifted and generous entrepreneur as Agatha. Together, we have re-imagined Yummy SpoonfulsⓇ with the goal of making it accessible to families all across America. It is our shared dream to change the way kids eat, by instilling a lifelong love for delicious, healthy food starting with their very first spoonful.

Made the way a mom would, with whole organic ingredients
Our organic frozen meals for toddlers begin by peeling, chopping and simply cooking the ingredients with care, in small batches at low temperatures. This ensures food safety while also improving flavor and preserving the nutrients and vitamins.
Made the way a mom would,
with care in small batches
Our frozen meals for toddlers preserve their freshness because our chefs immediately freeze our meals after cooking to lock in nutrients, colors and flavors at their peak of freshness without the need for preservatives or over-processing. Just like what we do at home to save grandma’s casserole for another night, freezing is one of the most natural ways to preserve food. You can see and taste the difference!
Organic, whole foods preserved naturally
Our food is packaged and stored the way you would. We put it in only the safest containers. We package it in BPA-free, microwave safe, easy-to-use pouches and containers, allowing you to safely and easily store all that yummy, just-like-homemade baby and toddler food goodness.
