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

There are one more thing I would like author to add here: meat recipes or mention directly that book is mostly for vegetarians. Adding one paragraph about dissected liver does not make the book as non vegetarian.:)
I must admit, I did not utilize organic foods at all times, I believe that if it grew, its probably not poisonous if everyone is enjoying the product from that same source.
Long story short. I adopted two children, though from the same country, their ethnicity, social class status and general educational backgrounds within their families where less than desirable (I barely graduated from HS, and I am currently working on my Doctorate, so I put no gospel in the notion that nature or nurture is better or worse..)
I fed my babies this diet, and the following results occurred:
1. Neither of my children ever caught a virus or sickness that they could not shake off in a matter of seconds
2. Neither of my children ever had problems with gas, anything other than formed bm, no spit-up or whatever you call it
3. Each child was only seen by a medical practitioner aside from annual exams, (my daughter was seen by a urologist many times, however Kidney Reflux is hereditary and/or something you either are born with you without)
4. My son is now in 3rd grade, however his intellectual level is that of 11'th grade. My daughter is one year behind her brother, in second grade and although she struggles with reading comprehension, she test at or above 7'th grade level.
I do not know how this author came up with the idea, aside from a little birdy telling her to do so, because I skipped pages that dealt with introductions and in my opinion, space fillers.. and focused on the diet. I must give her credit where it is due, not only was I 100% satisfied back in 2004/2005, as the birth of my third child approaches, Super Baby Food was the first item I wrote on my must haves list- used or brand new, as long as the pages are not torn out so you are missing the second half of the directions to feeding your baby alvacado " ..... and blend until desired consistency. Always bare in mind the critical nature of adding (torn page) as long as you can see the content, save your money and buy the book for a penny, you will need the cash if you go all organic ;) A point that she brushes on is money saving idea's, and buying a used copy was her idea, so I did.
5 stars, So you have to pay $3.99 for shipping within the US, that $4.00, my weekly food budget alone was reduced 1400% by following SBF, it was well worth spending one afternoon a month making ice cubes of food, come to think of it, I may still have some left... Give it a try, if you dont like it, regift it to someone... But trust me, you will see the difference,
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.
