About the author (1998)

When Ruth Yaron's twin boys were born premature and very sick, she knew the most important thing she could do for them was to feed them the healthiest diet possible. Unhappy with the information that was available to her, Ruth decided to do her own exhaustive research on nutrition and health food. Although she was a whiz at programming satellites for NASA, Ruth was an inexperienced cook. She used dozens of natural cookbooks to learn her way around a kitchen, experimenting with tofu, carob and wheat germ, much to the surprise of friends and family. A determined mother is a great motivator. She utilized her skills, developed writing technical manuals for the everyday reader, to diligently record her research of homemade, mostly organic, whole grain cereals, fruits, and home-cooked vegetables, as well as the best storing and freezing methods to diligently record her research on homemade, mostly organic, whole grain cereals, fruits, and home-cooked vegetables, as well as the best storing and freezing methods. The result was a remarkably easy and complete system of baby food preparation: Super Baby Food.
