The word "yummy" can be used as an adjective or as an interjection when talking about food that tastes good. You’ll hear the word "yummy" used by and around children, but adults can use it as well when speaking to each other.
The words "yummy" and "yum" are used as interjections (An interjection is a single word such as "Hey!" "Wow!" and "Yeah!").
Note: Some people use "yummy" to describe a person, but I would advise against it because it sounds a little discrespectful to describe a person with a word normally used for food.
