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.

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!).

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.

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.

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.

In this New York Times bestseller, one of America's premier child psychologists offers a must-read account of the dismal state of parenting today, and a vision for how we can better prepare our children for the challenges of the adult world In The Collapse of Parenting, internationally acclaimed author Leonard Sax argues that rising levels of obesity, depression, and anxiety among young people can be traced to parents abdicating their authority. The result is children who have no standard of right and wrong, who lack discipline, and who look to their peers and the Internet for direction. Sax shows how parents must reassert their authority - by limiting time with screens, by encouraging better habits at the dinner table, and by teaching humility and perspective - to renew their relationships with their children. Drawing on nearly thirty years of experience as a family physician and psychologist, along with hundreds of interviews with children, parents, and teachers, Sax offers a blueprint parents can use to help their children thrive in an increasingly complicated world.
