Review & Give-Away: Super Baby Food

March 15, 2010

It is very important to B and I that we are proactive about Baby O’s nutrition.  We don’t want to just feed his body, we want to nourish him.  We chose to wait to start solids until Baby O gave us many signs he was ready and at just about six months, it was time!   I have to admit I was quite nervous to begin the transition to solid foods.  I felt uncertain about knowing not only what O should eat, but when, how much, and in what way.  After a bit of research and a lot of recommendations, I found Ruth Yaron’s Super Baby Food.  Relief!

I’ll just say it right off the bat, my favorite part about this impressively inclusive book is the nutrition information.  There is tons of useful information in this book, such as how to make a complete protein, which combinations of vitamins are most efficient, as well as lists of food sources for particular nutrients.  Super Baby Food has been an incredible resource for our family when making nutritious food choices each day!

Like his parents, Baby O eats a mostly vegetarian diet, but he does occasionally have organic free-range meats.  The Super Baby Food diet is a vegetarian diet, but this book is useful for omnivores and vegetarians alike as it contains a special section on preparing meat for those that choose to do so.

Ruth also includes information on which foods to introduce when (of course always follow the advice of your pediatrician first), approximately how much solids and liquids your child might be eating at each age, as well as tips on food preparation and safety.  There are many many recipes in this book, guiding you all the way from choosing your ingredients through preparing and freezing meals for later.

Super Baby Food includes practical (and fun!) tips too!  There are entire sections on Arts & Crafts and even do it yourself Party Supplies.  See what I mean when I said inclusive!?

Would you like to have Super Baby Food for your family?  Mmm Hmm!
Ruth is generously offering one Oh Baby O reader a Super Baby Food book of your very own!

    I checked out her site! I learned that this book also has lots of other tips about saving money in the kitchen and on crafts (playdough, finger paints, etc!) as well as environmentally friendly and baby safe recipes for household cleaners! Wow! I’d love to have a copy of this book!

    I already have a copy, so I don’t need to win, but I just wanted to say that I reference my copy at least 3 times/week. It has been a lifesaver!

    I learned that dried fruit is easier to chop when cold – this is a helpful tip for a couple of recipes that pop immediately to mind!

    I loved how she discusses how veggies or fruits can be first foods rather than baby cereal which is low in nutrition and fiber.

    Read the sample chapters – the section on minimizing nutrient loss is great because isn’t that part of why we’re making our own baby food, to give baby the maximum nutrients and best foods?

    I was flipping back through some of your older posts : 1) how is your Spring Quilt coming? If you have any other fabrics in your stash you could use a fabric that reads “dark” (but I like some higher contrast) but love the colors you picked!
    2) In a whole giant string of pictures there is a little girl in an aqua eyelet dress…so cute! Did someone make the dress?

      Hi Tracy~
      The Spring quilt is on hold. I’m not loving all the little squares to be honest. Nothing wrong with the pattern… It’s just me! I’m thinking that it might have been better to start with something a bit more simple. I do intend on finishing it though.
      That gorgeous little girl is my youngest sister! I believe the dress you are referring to was store-bought.
      Thanks for stopping by!

    One of my friends (first time mom) had the hardest time on what to feed her daughter, so I found the chapter : Your BabFeeding Your Baby at 7 Months interesting. Thanks!

    i learned that i really want this book, lol! i love the sample recipes, the melon bowl looks great!

  29. March 28, 2010 9:44 pm

    I have this book already, but would love to pass it along to my sister who is expecting her first. One of the first things I really learned from this was that baby cereal actually doesn’t have nutrition and so it is better to start with vegetables and fruits.
