Super Baby Food Review and Giveaway

I am back from Alaska, and I am excited to share with you a book that I was reading while on my long flights to and from. I think that The Super Baby Food Book by Ruth Yaron is one of the most helpful and comprehensive books for moms and dads that I have read! Ruth Yaron is married with three children. When her twins were born 18 years ago, they were ten weeks premature and very sick. This is what prompted years of research on pediatric nutrition. When her third son was born in 1994, she was able to quit her job as a professor at a local university and become a stay-at-home mom. During the next two years, she wrote the Super Baby Food Book, which became a best seller and is still the best-selling book on the subject of feeding babies solid foods.

It has absolutely everything you should know about feeding your baby and toddler, from starting solid foods to age three. The Super Baby Food Book includes age-appropriate foods, food safety, sample menus and more than 350 recipes. That is not all, either! Ruth has included chapters to help you save time and money, learn more about nutrition, go green in other parts of your child's life, and more fun tips on making homemade toys, arts, and crafts.

Super Baby Food has sold almost 500,000 copies and has been featured twice on Good Morning America. It is no wonder, because like I said before, this book is so helpful and so awesome!!

I just loved how detailed she was in her recommendations for what to feed your baby at different stages in their growth. She goes through it month by month, suggesting what to add in that month and how much they should be eating. I also love that she places such a high priority on what is best for your child. She even talks through how to set up a safe eating area for your baby.

My favorite part is the appendices where there is a crash course in nutrition and nutrient tables with baby-sized portions. She also gives tips and recipes on making nontoxic cleaning products and baby care products! Love that! The information she lays out is so helpful!

Every mom and dad will want this book!! I wish I would have had it earlier in my first son's life, but now that I have it, I can't put it down. You can buy it now right here on their website for $19.95 plus S+H, or you can win a copy of your own because we are giving away a book to TWO DIFFERENT READERS!!!
