“If you’re willing to spend an hour or two a month to prepare cooked veggies, and a few minutes every two or three days preparing cereal, you can prepare a whole diet of extremely nutritious natural Super Baby Food,” Ruth Yaron writes in the introduction to her book, Super Baby Food – Your Complete Guide to What, When, and How to Feed Your Baby and Toddler.
At six hundred and fifty-seven pages, this enormous third edition paperback book has virtually all the answers to making healthy, nutritious food for a young child. The book is separated into seven parts that include the Super Baby Food System, feeding your child, purchasing, preparing and storing food, safety tips, nutrition, recipes coinciding with the age of the child and how to live more organically. The appendices include measurements, resources, and both recipe and topical indexes with the author’s biography.
Stating right off the bat, Yaron stresses to supplement her food program with a professional healthcare provider’s awareness. She is opposed to plastic wrap, aluminum foil and the microwave while teaching how to look for allergic reactions, get protein from eggs, and buy only certified organic food, especially the fifteen vegetables with the least amount of pesticides used.
Suggesting starting an infant on solid food no earlier than four months old to no later than eight months old, the program consists of a schedule of three meals, two snacks and two breast or bottle feedings with water throughout the day initially. Her Super Porridge Main Meal is the most important meal, followed by a yogurt-based and varied meal later.
Insisting the time involved in buying, preparing and storing the homemade meals is nominal, the price costs are noticeably cheaper if her recommendations are followed. With monthly changes in a young one’s life, there are adjusted charts of how much to feed and how often.
The bulk of the book is in Part Three that covers over almost two hundred pages of vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, dairy, eggs and other healthy items with ways to prepare, cook, and freeze for future use. Part Four contains over one hundred pages of recipes for baby to toddler aged children.
Even if you are not a parent of a young child, this book would be ideal for the elderly who need a modified, soft diet or one who is transitioning to living more organically with its homemade kitchen and bathroom cleaner recipes.
