DESCRIPTION BOOK:

French Kids Eat Everything is a wonderfully wry account of how Karen Le Billon was able to alter her children’s deep-rooted, decidedly unhealthy North American eating habits while they were all living in France. At once a memoir, a cookbook, a how-to handbook, and a delightful exploration of how the French manage to feed children without endless battles and struggles with pickiness, French Kids Eat Everything features recipes, practical tips, and ten easy-to-follow rules for raising happy and healthy young eaters—a sort of French Women Don’t Get Fat meets Food Rules.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Far too many parents face an ongoing struggle to get their kids to eat well, so why is it that French children gladly wolf down all the things our kids hate - the dreaded spinach or broccoli, fish, olives, salad...? In French Kids Eat Everything, Karen Le Billon shares her experience of moving to France and finding the inspiration to transform her family's approach to eating. If you've ever tried hiding healthy foods in your kids' meals, bribing them to finish - or even start - something healthy, or simply given up in exasperation at your child's extensive list of banned foods, this book will strike a chord. It charts the author's enlightening journey from stressed mum of picky eaters, to proud - if somewhat surprised - parent of healthy, happy eaters. Along the way, you'll discover the 'food rules' that help the French foster healthy eating habits, why it's vital to get kids to try the same food many times over, the value of educating your children about food from an early age, why how you eat is just as important as what you eat - and much, much more. With tips, tricks, rules and routines for happy, healthy eaters - plus some fast, tasty recipes to try - this isn't just another tale of Gallic gastronomic superiority but a practical guide to instilling in your kids healthy eating habits that will last them a lifetime (and ensure less stressful mealtimes for you too!).

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

A must-read for teachers and parents.—Marion Nestle, author of What to Eat Moving her young family to her husband’s hometown in northern France, Canadian Karen Le Billon is prepared for some cultural adjustment, but she doesn’t expect a family food revolution. The fancy foods and snack-free culture she finds there are hard for her picky-eater daughters to handle. And equally hard for their mother, who is lectured-for slipping her fussing toddler a snack—a recipe for obesity!—and forbidden from sending a brown-bag lunch in lieu of the elaborate fourcourse-school lunches intended to teach children to love their veggies. The family initially rebels, but Le Billon begins to see the wisdom in-a simple set of unwritten food rules that govern how the French foster healthy eating habits and good manners in babies and children. She observes-that French kids willingly eat everything—from fruit salad to foie gras, potato chips to snails, spinach to stinky blue cheese—and that this practice is considered normal by everyone, including the kids! Moreover, since diets are almost unheard of for French children, Le Billon discovers yet another version of the famous French paradox: while French kids love to eat, they are rarely overweight. And, intriguingly, although French parents spend just a few more minutes per day cooking than we do, their homemade meals are healthy and tasty, appealing to both adults and kids. Combining personal anecdotes with practical tips and delicious, easy recipes (like Five-Minute Fish en Papillote, Baby’s Vichyssoise, Crêpes, Zesty Orange Salad, and Mousse Au Chocolat, French Kids Eat Everything is a humorous, provocative look at the way we feed our kids.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Approaching its topic with humor, style, and a critical eye, this unique guidebook enables parents to provide a healthy and diverse diet for their children. Instead of providing yet another guide to kids' nutrition, a medical discussion, a treatise on the perils of obesity, or a parenting primer on good table manners, this study demonstrates that children need to be taught how to eat well just as they are taught to walk. With detailed guidance from nutritionists, physicians, scientists, and chefs, this handbook details how to find the right foods, how to overcome recurring problems, and emphasize the healthiest elements. Dealing with the picky eater and the real worries about obesity and good nutrition, this survey posits that youngsters eat the way they do because of how the parents themselves eat—and shows how to combat any and all bad habits. Offering plenty of information on how to go about serious change and where to find the best resources, this reference is guaranteed to broaden the horizon of any child's menu.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Stop thinking about nutrition and start thinking about your child’s eating habits instead. You already know how to give your kids healthy food. But the hard part is getting them to eat it. After years of research and working with parents, Dina Rose, discovered a powerful truth: When parents focus solely on nutrition, their kids—surprisingly—eat poorly. But when families shift their emphasis to behaviors – the skills and habits kids are taught—they learn to eat right. Every child can learn to eat well—but only if you show them how to do it. Dr. Rose describes the three habits—proportion, variety, and moderation—all kids need to learn, and gives you clever, practical ways to teach these food skills. All children can learn: • How to confidently explore strange, new foods • How to know when they’re hungry and when they’re full • What to do when they say they’re “starving”—and about to attend a birthday party • How to branch out from easy-to-like prepackaged kid fare to more mature tastes and textures: savory, tangy, runny, crunchy. • How to engage in open and honest talk about food without yelling “I don’t like it!” With It's Not About the Broccoli, you can teach your children how to eat, and give them the skills they need for a lifetime of health and vitality.

Phase 4: Into the unknown. Discovering new ingredients and flavour combinations. Phase 5: Cementing variety. Learning techniques to keep your family meals varied long-term.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

From Los Angeles to Sao Paulo, Dakar to Hamburg, Dubai to Mumbai we come to understand that regardless of how small and interconnected the world seems to become each year, we still discover diverse pockets of traditional cultures on each continent, eating largely the same way they have been for hundreds of years. It is this rich tapestry that Segal captures with care and appreciation, showcasing the page-after-page charm of Daily Bread. Contrasted with the packaged and processed foods consumed primarily in developed nations, questions about health and sustainability are raised and the book serves as a catalyst for consideration of our status quo. There's an old adage, "the hand that stirs the pot rules the world." Big Food is stirring the pot for children all over the world. Nonetheless, there are regions and communities where slow food will never be displaced by junk food, where home cooked meals are the bedrock of family and culture, and where love and pride are sensed in the aromas of stews and curries. Sample captions- In an aluminum shack on a construction site on the outskirts of Mumbai, 10-year-old Anchal Sahni sits down to dinner with her family. Her father makes less than $5 a day, but it's enough for her mother to buy okra, eggplant and the other ingredients she uses to prepare her homemade curry. She makes roti from scratch, too, rolling it out and kneading it on the floor of their hut. Anchal's mom keeps alive a generations' old food culture, using simple recipes handed down through the generations--and because of this tradition, her daughter has a healthier diet than many middle-class kids in India who can afford to buy fast food, a status symbol in cities like Mumbai. In Catania, Sicily, Amelia Govia is surrounded by vibrantly colorful foods- green broccoli, purple beets, orange melon, yellow squash, plump red strawberries. In the Mediterranean, people spend a larger portion of their income on fresh produce rather than filling their freezers with processed, packaged foods. In fact, outside of a single pizza box, you don't see any packaging in Amelia's meals; everything is homemade, which is not only pleasing to the eye, but easy on the environment; the more we prepare our own meals from whole foods, the less waste we generate.
