Here's how to tell if you'd like the book:

I am shocked at all of the poor reviews this book was given, and I hope they don't turn people away from a book that I really appreciated. When I first opened the book, I read instructions on how to prepare and store almost every fruit or vegetable you can imagine (what a great resource!), but also saw things like grinding your own millet for cereal, making your own yogurt, adding kelp for nutrients and I thought, boy am I in for a long read! But what I thought would be terribly complex wasn't complex at all. Her directions are very simple and easy, and I felt she always kept the idea of less time and less money is best. I was consistently surprised how easy it was to put my baby on a wonderfully healthy diet, and it gave me such a sense of pride to do this for my daughter. Still wondering if it?s for you? This is for mothers who want to make their own food, but is also aware of the extreme importance of nutrition. Friends of mine who had and had not made their own baby food would gasp at the time and energy they thought I put into my baby's food, without realizing that it wasn't very time-consuming at all and was very rewarding. If these are your thoughts, stay away from this book. If you aren't willing to really read and learn about nutrition, stay away from this book. If you roll your eyes at "tree-huggers" and think organic farming is nonsense, you may not want to buy this book either because there is touch of this attitude. . She never sounded "preachy" to me, she just sounded well-educated, however I personally have strong views on human nutrition and how we treat our bodies AND communities by the food we consume. Also: I?m pretty sure that the comments about the nuts and nitrates in carrots and spinach ARE mentioned in the book. I think some people read only some parts and were ready to ring the alarm bells. If you read further, there are warnings for issues such as those. On a final note: After I bought mine, it came with me EVERYWHERE so I could read a few chapters whenever I got a chance. I bought it for a friend and I laughed because she was carrying it with her in the diaper bag. For those of us who loved the book, we know it's worthwhile. I recommend checking the book out from the library first, and then buying a copy if it seems like something you would really like.

perfect book - the only one you need for feeding baby!

This is the best, most comprehensive book about feeding baby I have found. I am following Yaron's suggestions to the T, with a green light from my pediatrician. (Including eating cooked egg yolks and the nuts and seeds suggested.) He says over and over again how lucky my son is to be getting such wholesome food! I started out thinking that I would just make some of my own baby food, but each thing I tried was easier than the one before, and before I knew it, I was making all the food for my baby. I really find it hard to believe that anyone buys baby food, especially things like cereal and bananas. But, even if you are not planning to make all (or any) of your own baby food, I still think this book is a must have. It gives detailed information on exactly what foods can be started at what age, what constitutes a balanced diet for a baby or toddler of any age, how to select, prepare, store, ripen, freeze or cook anything you want to serve baby, and tons more. No pediatrician could possibly provide this much information. I think a lot of Yaron's general household "Tips" throughout the book are sort of silly, but I have found a few of them to be very useful. This is the encyclopedia of baby food. It is a must have for all moms!

The most complete book on making your own babyfood !

"Super Baby Food" is the most complete book on making your own baby food. It explains to you step by step how to make the most nutritious and healthy food for your baby - it makes it so easy, especially for people like me who don't even cook ! It is also full of information on how to buy and store vegetables and whole grains as well as lots of valuable information on nutrition and many other goodies ! I have found "Super Baby Food" to be an extremely valuable resource !

Chock-full of everything you need to know

I have the first edition of this book and bought the second edition when it became available because it contained even more recipes and tips for food and play.Yaron brings together expert advice and common sense from a variety of sources. In this one volume a reader can find nutrition information we previously had to gather from a variety of books, experts and real-life experience. Her information on nutrition and safety is cutting-edge. While I gathered tips and advice from my pediatrician and from parenting newsletters available through my state Extension service, Yaron's book delivered more information in more detail and an easy-to-read format. Nutrition information can be referenced food by food or by a child's age of development. Whenever I had a question about the appropriateness of a certain food for my baby, I could quickly look it up. I learned quite a lot about general nutrition that's been helpful to my own diet. The book will be of special interest to vegetarian or vegetarian-leaning parents.The recipe section is invaluable for those "I don't know what to prepare" snacks and mealtimes. Yaron's tips are also money-savers for those on a tight budget. The new edition has more "do-it-yourself" ideas for play and parties and serves as a nice reference for the times when the reader's own creativity is lacking.

Comprehensive, invaluable resource guide!

Wow! Where to start? First, I bought this and The Healthy Baby Meal Planner by Annabel Karmel at the same time. While Karmel's book is "prettier" and has some interesting looking recipes, this one far outweighs it as a resource tool, which was what I was looking for. I admit, I was intimidated at first by the sheer volume of information contained in this book, but after reading the author's suggestion on how to read the book, I felt that I had a better handle on it. The book is very well organized, from when to introduce specific foods, to how to prepare and store them (one of my favorite sections!), to the recipes, which I really haven't gotten to yet. Yaron doesn't make the reader feel guilty about having a few jars of commerical baby food on hand, so in this sense, she's not militant about doing Everything from scratch. The only area which I feel is a bit weak is the very short chapter on meat, which she states she added for the "readers who (no matter what I say!) have decided to feed it to their babies." Yaron is very obviously a vegetarian, which is fine, however, I (and many other moms) are not. This does not stop me from enjoying her book, and I probably will start preparing more grains-and- legumes meals as a result of what I'm learning, for variety, if not for the health benefits.This is definitely the book to own if you can only buy one!
