Caroline Baron currently supervises production for the children’s media company Yummico. She founded the company with creators Anthony Weintraub, Bob Mowen, and Traci Paige Johnson who is best known for creating the television series Blue's Clues.


After hearing about the 1999 Kosovo War Caroline Baron founded FilmAid International. The organization started by assisting refugees in Macedonia through the use of educational films and entertainment.

“I learned very quickly that we could use the screens for more than entertainment,” Baron stated in a Vanity Fair article, “We could also communicate life-saving education. We were drawing huge crowds, and everyone wanted to see what was being projected.”

In 1999 Film Aid partnered with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and other global aid organizations to assist refugees in countries around the world including Guinea, Kenya, Afghanistan, Thailand, and Haiti.

Baron lives in New York City with her husband Anthony Weintraub, and her two kids Asher and Emmanuel.
