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

However, the author does go a bit over board pushing organic food and a vegetarian diet. The meat section is completely worthless and doesn't even have a place in the book. The section talks about why is she vegetarian, why meat is so awful for children and adults, and then shares 3-4 recipes that the author hasn't even tried.
The author is also extremely concerned about bacteria being introduced to baby's food and goes to extreme measures to keep baby's food, utensils, etc, sterilized, bleached, and in high cabinets away from any human contact. If you have a clean house and good hygiene, it is enough, but the author makes the reader feel like keeping baby in a bubble.
Other than those two kinda wacky observations, this was a wonderful book.
I can't say enough great things about this book other than go get yourself a copy. I have mine on hand with me throughout the day and when I have a few extra minutes I read a small section. Lastly I will say it doesn't have to be read in order...I flip all around and go back and forth. It's so full of info....from cover to cover! Hope you all find it as helpful and informative as I have. :)
