AGATHA ACHINDU
Going “Green” is something Agatha Achindu, CEO & Chief Yummy Officer (CYO) for Yummy Spoonfuls™ knows a lot about, being a strong

believer in the adage “we are what we eat”. At 9 years old, Agatha began her love for cooking. She quickly became the “go to” person for wholesome, yummy recipes.
Married with a son, Agatha evaluated current baby food choices and realized most contained fillers, additives, hormones, sugar and salt (all the things that babies should not have). She gave her son an alternative! Her friends noticed and she started getting requests for organic supplies and anything she was willing to make. Preparing her son’s dinner one night, she thought of friends that were busy working moms wishing to feed their babies with healthy, organic food but just didn’t have the time and/or know-how to go about this: That night Yummy Spoonfuls™ was born.
