Publisher's Summary

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 10 easy-to-follow rules for raising happy and healthy young eaters - a sort of French Women Don’t Get Fat meets Food Rules

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Delightful

I can’t remember where I saw someone talking about this book but I’m so glad I decided to listen to it! My daughter is 6 months old and I have felt so lost about how I was going to start food or if I should start at all yet and then considering baby led weaning.
I liked how she included failed attempts at her food approach.
Most of all I really liked how she talked about how not to teach your child to be emotionally tied to certain food me and my husband aren’t picky eaters but we are emotional eaters and in a lot of ways comfort foods was a big way my own mother showed love for me growing up

Required Reading!!

Extremely engaging! It is highly insightful on not only kids and picky eating, but also a close analysis of North American culture and their relationship with food through the lens of an unsuspecting nation, not to mention a compelling family story spread across two continents. 10/10 recommend to parents, parents to be, and parents never to be. This book is as important for rearing the next generation as it is for any North American.

Enjoyable book!

I enjoyed this book very much. Fun, informative, thought-provoking and great narration. I can't wait to put many of these traditional yet enjoyable "food rules" into my family's routine.

Helpful

This book helped me come up with so many ideas to help my kids eat a more balanced diet. It also vanquished any remaining fantasies about moving to France and trying to fit in!

I wish I had read this sooner

This book answers so many questions about the way I was raised and in turn how I have raised my child. My wife and I are picky eaters so of course our child would be too. We have a bad good culture in our country that pushes snacking and other bad habits. Before you know it you are teaching your children these same bad habits. This book does a good job of identifying those bad habits and reasonable solutions.
