As you may have guessed, Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron is a popular parenting “must have” for hundreds of thousands of parents in the US and Canada.
Did you also know that Super Baby Food is requested all over the world?
Although we do not have an edition of Super Baby Food available everywhere in the world – yet – we are working on it. To that end, Ruth is pleased to announce the Romanian edition of the book. We are so pleased to be able to reach the parents in Romania and are working hard to reach parents anywhere in the world who want to learn to feed their baby through the use of Super Baby Food!
Martha introduced Ruth and prepared a recipe for baby “pink applesauce” that is now featured on her website. We thought it would be fun to ask Ruth a couple of questions about her visit with Martha. Her answers may surprise you. The answers are also a great conversation starter for those holiday dinners when you need something witty to contribute to the conversation.
You can visit the Martha Stewart Website for more information on the episode that featured Super Baby Food here.
Question for Ruth:
Can you tell us one thing about Martha Stewart that you didn’t know before you met her?
I never knew she was a professional model. She has photos on the walls in the hallway behind the stage. She is as beautiful in person as she is on TV and in the pictures of her in the media and in her books. She is a natural beauty.
Question for Ruth:
What was your favorite part of meeting Martha Stewart?
Meeting THE Martha Stewart. I loved watching all the activity behind the scenes while the show was being taped. Every one of her staff was professional, very kind, and organized and they all worked together perfectly, like a well-oiled machine. They were all very capable and extremely efficient without rushing anyone, and they had a great sense of humor and an easiness about them. They enjoyed me kidding around saying stuff like, “What do you say when you meet Martha Stewart? ‘Hello, your majesty!’ with a curtsy? (which I did NOT say to her, by the way).” It was really an all-around fabulous experience and I had fun being a part of it.
How is that for some Martha Stewart Trivia? Martha was, indeed, a model for Chanel. Check out this link which shows the proof!
Thanks to all the Super Baby Food fans who tuned into the show and told all their friends. You are the best!

A Fan of Super Baby Food took the time to write a nice note expressing the reasons she loves Super Baby Food. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Thank you, Dacia, for your permission to reprint your kind words.
I just want you to know what an immense impact your book has made on my life. I’m a research nut & the book saved me a lot of time. Not only useful information, but well organized, user friendly and all-encompassing for all viewpoints or opinions. The second reason it has impacted me is the support it has given me in embarking on homemade food & fully immersed nutrition. Our society has evolved into consumers and we’ve become much too separated from our children’s nutrition. I wanted to breast feed very badly and when I decided to make my own super baby food, I discovered the uncanny parallels the two have as far as stigmas and barriers. I found support for breast feeding and now I’ve found support for super baby food & beyond. What I’ve learned will go far beyond my child’s nutrition and even past our own dinner plates.
A couple years ago, my brother had mentioned possibly making his own baby food. My silent reaction was “you can’t do that, it’s not that simple, baby food is fortified…” Then I had my son 6 months ago and made my research and decisions. I went to Borders and piled up 20 books to sift through before choosing yours since it wasn’t all pictures and glossy pages – LOTS of info and that’s it. Then I went to the family meet & greet for my son’s daycare enrollment & they stated they provide Gerber foods. I asked if I could bring my own in. They just about gasped and said, well maybe if you had a Doctor’s note… Can you believe it! I pushed and spoke to the Director and they agreed if I would label the ingredients. THEN, the following week, the teachers all huddled around me and detained me for a half an hour inquiring excitedly about home made baby food. They just couldn’t get over how wonderful it was all of a sudden. I’m glad I turned them on to it and plan on buying his two teachers copies of your book for Christmas.
I apologize for the windy feedback, but I really thought you’d enjoy the story as well. Thanks for your work and for your time!
Can anyone provide more words of support for Dacia? Has anyone run in to the kind of reaction Dacia did at her day care regarding baby food? How did you handle it?
