Super Baby Food book review and giveaway!

Attention to anyone who will ever need to feed a baby or child: get this book! I was given a copy of Super Baby Food, by Ruth Yaron, after my daughter was born. My cousin had heard such great things about it at her mom’s group that she thought I might enjoy it as well and bought it for me. The term “enjoyment” doesn’t do justice, though. “Need” would be much more suitable.
Super Baby Food is one book that you should absolutely have in your library. It’s pretty hefty, covering every topic from timelines for introducing foods to your baby and nutrition tables for baby-sized portions, to safe cleaning alternatives and ideas for parties, crafts, and games! I have read and re-read this book, finding new and valuable information each time. This is the only book I have found that gives clear instructions as to:
  • when to introduce particular foods (including month-to-month schedules)
  • how to prepare, store, and serve your own baby foods (with money and time saving tips)
  • how to introduce solid foods while still maintaining a nursing schedule
  • how to kill mice and other pests using only natural ingredients…(that’s a joke, but it really is in the book)
  • the reasons behind all of this advice!

The style that Ruth writes with is easy to understand, dusted with humor, and full of researched information. I appreciate it from the practical standpoint of a mother, and also the medical standpoint of a paramedic. Every parent or caretaker of babies through toddlers needs this book. It is your one stop shop for knowing everything about feeding your child. Your baby is worth knowing the how, what, when, and why of eating. It’s hard being away from my baby while I’m working, but it’s a lot easier knowing that I’m providing good food for her.

Head over to Ruth’s website at and let me know what you want to learn about that’s in her book. Be sure to include your email address in your comment to me! One winner will be chosen at random on Sunday, June 14 at 12:00 EST.

  1. uh oh…I’m the first comment that’s never a good sign. πŸ™‚ There isn’t anything I wouldn’t want to learn, but I’m especially interested in the consistency of food at different ages and how to handle it to be sure she doesn’t get food poisoning.

  2. I want to learn about EVERYTHING!!!LOL I am on the verge of giving up making homemade baby food so this would be a life saver!!! My baby hates my made babyfood right now and I want to learn how to make it taste right so she likes it! Thanks for this give away this would be a life saver for sure!!! My email address is


  3. I would love to learn how to create a “good” healthy eater. My first dd eats everything, but it very picky about when/if she will eat when we ask her to (like at a meal). I want a different path for dd#2.


  4. How funny! I was just looking at this book on amazon yesterday. It’s like you read my mind!
    I’m mostly interested in learning recipes and how to be sure baby has a healthy diet.


  5. tiffany (dot) merritt (at) gmail (dot) com.

    I’m intrigued by all the tips to help me save time and money in the kitchen. I try really hard to be “no frills” in the kitchen, because that’s not really where I want to spend all my time!


  6. I have a 4 month old and we will be starting solid foods next month. I plan on making my own baby food from the organic produce that we get. This book looks great, I am most interested in learning How to quickly, easily, and safely make your own baby food. THis is my first child so I feel overwhelmed in knowing what and when to introduce also.


  7. I would love to learn how to make our own baby food! I would especially like to read about the consistency to make foods at each age and the amount of foods your baby should be eating.


  8. My husband is so intrigued by the idea of making our own baby food. Avoiding preservatives and additives is a huge deal to us, baby food making seems pretty easy but what we need to learn is what we can and cannot feed baby at diff ages.

    This is our first so we are clueless about that!


  9. I'm really trying to live my life in a more sustainable, environmentally friendly way and have come across all kinds of horrible things most kids encounter like toxic chemicals without them, even knowing it. I would love to learn about what to avoid and what to run toward when it comes to feeding my baby. Thanks for the great contest!


  10. would love to win a copy of this book! was meaning to check it out at the library for my first two babies but never did – would like to learn about different combos of foods that would work and also storage. Really don't want to buy jar baby food with this baby! email address is janelbrennan (AT)


  11. The amount of foods and liquids your baby should be eating and drinking at each age; How to handle and store baby food to prevent food poisoning; How to prevent allergies, etc. Just about every topic shown on the website on “About the Book” I am interested in.


  12. I'm interested in learning more about how to avoid harmful additives and preservatives because I think we do an okay job with our older daughter… but with our little one getting ready to eat solids very soon, I'd like to make sure we're doing the best we can to stay healthy.



  13. I will e-mail my friends for an extra entry, but I need your e-mail address to cc you on it! As soon as I get that, I will do this!
