A letter from our co-founder.

Hey there! My name is Dennis Ai, and I wanted to share a little bit about why we started Yammy.  

When I was growing up, I loved to eat. My favorite snack was a family-size bag of sour cream and onion potato chips, which I would eat by myself, at least three times a week.  

By the time I was in the 5th grade, I was the most overweight kid in my class. I was teased and bullied by my classmates – the most memorable of which was the first time I ever asked a girl out, I was told “No, because then my boyfriend would be fat.” It was hurtful, but it was also motivating. I taught myself nutrition, I started exercising, and by the end of middle school, I was much fitter and I ran the fastest mile in my school.

I never forgot that experience though, and ten years ago, I started a company called JiveHealth, where we built games to help kids build healthier eating habits. Along the way, we won an award from the Partnership for a Healthier America and First Lady Michelle Obama.  And I made a promise to them that I would never ever give up on trying to get people to eat and live healthier.

I am even more convinced that truly getting people healthy starts with food. Food that is nutritious, that tastes good, and that you actually want to eat. Yammy Mango Chips, Dragon Fruit Chips, and Dried Sweet Potato are just the beginning. Snacks are just the start. We are on a long road to transform the food we eat. I hope you'll join us.
