    DescriptionFar 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!).

    Review quote
    Humorous as well as instructive, this culinary adventure will change the lives of parents and children alike ... Karen Le billon and her children learn that it's okay to feel hungry between meals, turn to mindful eating, and learn the importance of enjoying one's food. -- Patricia Wells, author of The Provence Cookbook This book is not only about how to teach children (and yourself) to eat well and happily for life, it's a book about how to help build and maintain the foundations of any civilized society. I loved it. Essential reading, whether you have children or not. -- Laura Calder, author of Dinner Chez Moi and host of French Food at Home A wonderful - and important - book. One family's topsy-turvy culinary transformation becomes an in-depth exploration of the habits that have kept French kids loving food (and eating spinach) for centuries. -- Elizabeth Bard, author of Lunch in Paris
