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. The result was a remarkably easy and complete system of baby food preparation: Super Baby Food.

Ruth is a nationally recognized authority and media veteran, having appeared on The Martha Stewart Show and Good Morning America. She has a fantastic online presence as well, contributing her expert advice in comprehensive articles for and On the most popular parenting sites, such as, fans have begun community boards where they discuss aspects of Super Baby Food and share tips.

“I have not done a statistically accurate medical study to prove it,” Ruth says, “but I claim that it was the Super Baby Food Diet that made my sons so very healthy. Let some scientist prove me wrong!”

Ruth Yaron’s fans agree with her. Over half a million copies of the first two editions of Super Baby Food have been sold. Ruth’s fans have dubbed the book their baby food bible and it has become the quintessential baby and toddler-feeding guide for hundreds of thousands of parents world-wide. Celebrities like Cindy Crawford and Kourtney Kardashian have touted the praises of Super Baby Food as well, and introduced the book and Ruth to their audiences. The demand from fans, as well as new and expectant mothers who have heard about the book, for an updated and expanded edition was heard loudly over the last couple of years. Ruth has once again delivered. The third edition of Super Baby Food was published in September 2013.

Ruth continues her research and to share Super Baby Food tips with her audience through her blog at, her active Facebook page and Twitter account (@Super_Baby_Food). She loves to interact AND hear feedback from new parents and will answer any of the energetic, insightful questions they have.

Ruth Yaron graduated from East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania with degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science. She worked at the GE Space Division and programmed satellites for NASA before writing Super Baby Food. She is the mother of three sons and lives with her husband in Scranton, PA.
