Moving her young family to her husband's hometown in northern France, Karen Le Billon expected some cultural adjustment. But she didn't expect to be lectured for slipping her fussing toddler a snack, or to be forbidden from packing her older daughter a school lunch. Karen is intrigued by the fact that French children happily eat everything--from beets to broccoli, from salad to spinach--while French obesity rates are a fraction of what they are in North America.
Karen soon begins to see the wisdom in the "food rules" that the French use to foster healthy eating habits and good manners in babies and children. Some of the rules call into question both our eating habits and our parenting styles. Other rules evoke commonsense habits that we used to share but have somehow forgotten. Taken together, the rules suggest that we need to dramatically rethink the way we feed children, at home and at school.
Combining personal anecdotes with practical tips and appetizing recipes--including Zucchini and Spinach Puree and Bouillabaisse (Fish Soup) for Babies--French Kids Eat Everything is a humorous, provocative look at families, food, and children that is filled with inspiration and advice that every parent can use.--BonAppetit.com --Deze tekst verwijst naar een alternatieve kindle_edition editie.

I am pretty sure I had the pickiest eaters on earth. If you think that is not true because your kids are the pickiest, stop right here - my twins WERE pickier.
That was not always the case. Until they turn one they ate everything we gave them. Mostly in a blended form, but they got all the veggies and fruit they needed. I thought we just had an easy set of kids and silently laughed at all the stories of frustrated parents who were telling me how their toddlers spit everything into their faces.
And then mother Karma found me...
Every meal was a meal from hell. We stopped eating together as a family, and I spent a lot of my time in the kitchen cooking 2 different lunches, and 2 different dinners EVERY SINGLE DAY. The only thing my kids wanted to eat was spaghetti with tomato sauce (and it had to be the one from the jar, not home made from fresh veggies - they would not even smell it) and processed sausage. Processed sausage was a must every day.
Besides this and milk they refused to eat anything else.
It has been ongoing for few months and I was sincerely worrying about the well-being of my children. And then my friend recommended this book to me. In an act of desperation I thought to myself that even if it won't help, it won't hurt to read it either. So I read it. Overnight. And then I read it one chapter at a time while implementing the rules.
The first week was very hard. I was considering giving up and letting my kids eat spaghetti with processed add ons again because I did not know what was worse - giving them processed food or let them starve themselves to death. I do not think they ate anything during the first 3..4 days. they just drank their milk. And then, suddenly, at the end of week one there was a breakthrough. They started to pick single things from the table and ate them!
It has been more than one year since we went through the process. My girls are 3 yo now and eat everything. All veggies, all fruit, fish, meat, no limits. They ask for carrot or pineapple as a snack. Yes, they still love their ice creams and chocolates and cupcakes, but at least they get the right nutrition alongside the sugar doses.
Americans snack constantly. Most of their calories are from junk, "fake" food. Most restaurants are some variant of Fast Food (especially Chili's and Olive Garden types, that cook prepackaged meals passed off as real dishes), and they eat out a LOT! Kids are constantly walking around with some bag of something in their hands. Corporations have caught on and pacify parents with things like "Organic Fruit Rollups". And we have fallen for it hook, line, and sinker. Schools especially, even Pre-K, where the kids are fed Animal Crackers as a morning snack and corporate marketing tools are drilled into them.
We tried several books that typically resulted in bribery, punishment, reward, or becoming a line-cook and making separate meals for the kids. It seemed ridiculous because we were eating so much better than our own child. Other parents were of little help, because they all had the same problem with no solutions.
By instituting some of the rules outlined in this book, we've changed our household dramatically. We stopped the fighting. We cooked good meals and started eating together, more slowly, enjoying conversation. We eliminated snacks from our house. We encouraged her to try everything, but didn't force her to eat it (a "taste" was acceptable, it would reappear on her plate some other night). One snack a day, between lunch and dinner, and only fruit/yogurt/cheese/applesauce/etc. Desserts were for special meals and occasions (where it had previously been a reward for choking down a sliver of carrot). If she didn't eat, fine, the plate was taken away when the meal was over and she could wait until her next meal. No snacks! (Very quickly, she finally stormed into the kitchen, took back her plate and happily ate everything she had 20 minutes ago declared "yucky!") We started formal dinners once a week to have fun dressing up the table. She was encouraged to help with the cooking more. Eating is supposed to be FUN and enjoyable!
Finally, we changed ourselves. We took the time in the morning to make meals and eat together, as well as the evening dinner. We stopped letting ourselves get frustrated, because we knew that we weren't starving her (plenty of yummy food was being served), and eventually she would eat when she got hungry and realized that no, a cookie or box of crackers would never be coming.
I recommend this book to every parent.
We have a good friend, whose preschooler pretty much lived on gold fish crackers. I've been sharing the wisdom of this book with his parents for about 1 year and they finally took the plunge, and you know what, now he eats what is cooked for lunch and dinner. It's absolutely amazing.
Karen does not address the pyschology behind these methods in her book, but I think the crux of it is that we don't have much influence over our kids thoughts and behaviors, but we do have a tremendous amount of influence over their circumstances. This book is all about modifying the circumstances so that your kids do what you want. No punishment, No rewards. No shame. Just setting them up for success and giving them positive affirmation when they do hard things.
