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.
