Product Details

Product Description

From Amazon

Ruth Yaron cares deeply about what your baby is eating--so much so that her bestselling Super Baby Food is encyclopedic in both scope and size. Ounce for hefty ounce, this manual/cookbook/reference guide is worth its weight in formula, packed as it is with detailed information on homemade baby food, nutritional data, feeding schedules, cooking techniques, recipes, and other invaluable feeding tips. Yaron builds her compelling argument for making baby food at home on the simple premise that food profoundly impacts health, especially when an infant's developing digestive tract is involved. Parents will learn why babies should start out on rice porridge, bananas, avocados, and sweet potatoes before advancing to more difficult-to-digest foods such as wheat cereals and milk products. While Yaron's passionate stance and vegetarian bias may turn off some parents, others will be grateful for her strict attention to potentially harmful additives and chemicals. No matter what their eating philosophy, most parents will appreciate the economy and surprising ease of making baby food at home. This is not gourmet cooking; all you have to do is learn how to boil water and operate a blender. For veggies, simply steam some vegetable chunks and blend. For baby porridge, just grind some whole grains in a blender and boil. It's that simple. And when you're feeding your baby, simple is best. --Sumi Hahn

1.0 out of 5 stars is there an editor in sight??? Jan. 31 2003
By A Customer
Goodness gracious, this book is atrocious. It's poorly written and WAY too wordy. So much so that I stopped reading it after page 40. I am sure that there is some useful information in there, but I just don't have the time to get at it! Also, I do think this book is rather extreme regarding her take on nutrition.

2.0 out of 5 stars Focuses on the wrong/useless things Aug. 12 2013
I bought this book because I wanted clear instructions as to what food to make for my baby so that she will have complete nutrition. I was very excited when I started reading the book because the author started out talking about feeding in general, and I enjoy getting the larger context of what I am reading about/trying to learn. However, I kept reading, and quickly the author started talking about her Super Porridge, and she never stopped. This should be called the Super Porridge book. In addition, the diet she recommends for baby includes things like kelp, tahini, and some other things that seem really out there for a baby and not really in everyone's pantry. The diet she recommends, while probably healthy for adults, seems really unusual for a baby who is supposed to discover tastes, and not go to a friend's birthday party and ask for the kelp. I am all for healthy food (I homecook every meal for my baby), but I was more looking at focusing on the usual way to get nutrients, from the normal sources (fruit, vegetables, dairy, grains, meats), and I was more looking for a breakdown as to when to feed what and how much. I am NOT looking to spend all my Saturdays shopping at the local health food store. :-S
The book also focuses on cost saving tips that are ridiculous, such as measuring how much water to boil before boiling it, so that you don't spend the extra energy on water you will later throw out because you have boiled to much. I mean, seriously?
I could go on, but I don't want to spend any more time on this book. I think feeding your baby healthy food is simple, and this author is making it seem like a super-complex exotic pursuit. And oh ya, the secret is always her Super Porridge. :-|

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much to wade through June 23 2004
By A Customer
If you're looking for a concise list of what foods to introduce when and a few hints about cooking some of your own food--and you're a busy mom--keep looking. I am very conscious of what my baby eats (organic produce, free-range eggs, antibiotic-free milk, etc.), and wanted to prepare some of her food myself, but was overwhelmed by this tome. There's too much extraneous information to wade through--I already know how to select and store produce, for example. I'm sleep deprived and need to access recipes quickly. There's too much text accompanying the preparation instructions. Plus, despite my efforts, my child doesn't like plain veggies or that dreadful plain rice cereal. So, I'm hoping to find a real-life guide to healthy eating for real kids. Maybe something about sneaking veggies into pre-toddler food.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best baby food book ever Dec 14 2010
By que
This is the best baby food book I have ever bought. I used it first for my twins and then for our third son. It was easy to use, full of useful information and I still to this day - 10 years later use the book when preparing vegetables / fruits for the family. The cook times, storage tips, what to look for when buying are great. It contains a great chart to use to help introduce different foods to your baby and provides a timeline as to when to introduce them. My kids ate all kinds of fruits and veggies that were prepared fresh and in ways that preserved their nutrient content.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too complex and wordy April 14 2009
By New Mom
This book contains a lot of information and is overwhelming for parents looking to make simple, safe food for their babies. There are no pictures and it is just text after text. It also recommends juice for young babies on a regular basis.

4.0 out of 5 stars The only book I use! Feb. 7 2006
By A Customer
This is a great book that I use almost every day. This book teaches what foods to introduce when, how to structure a balanced meal plan, and how to store and prepare MANY different foods. Yes there is a lot of info in this book, some of which is poorly organized. But I got over that when I realized how much I learned about infant nutrition and how easy-to-follow her plans are. I feed my baby a mix of store bought and homemade food - you don't have to follow Ruth Yaron's plan 100% in order for this book to be helpful. I have not yet felt the need to get another book, this one is so complete.
