the Yummy Spoonfuls story

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.

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.

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!

our cooking

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 

the freezing difference

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 packaging

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.
