    This is a great book if you want an alternative to our fast-food

    This is a great book if you want an alternative to our fast-food, beige American diet. I just finished a summer camp with a bunch of kids that proved challenging during snack time. I consistently heard from the K-3 crowd, "I hate that. I won't eat that!" You would think we were serving cow's tongue. Nope. We offered a variey of cheese, pretzels, fruit, and jello. I agree with the author that we need to reclaim our authority as parents. We can be gentle and assertive but whatever is served at dinner is what the family eats.

    I do have to comment on the quiche recipe. Although it is not a traditional recipe it does work and it is good. Since the flour is mixed into the quiche itself (and not as a pie crust) it gives it a sturdier texture and consistancy and is definately yummy and filling. The key is to add your own spices to suit your taste.

    Charming and optimistic

    This reads a bit like the Swiss Family Robinson for foodies and those of us who enjoy traveling to France. I particularly enjoyed the author's tenacity and creative spirit as she learned to make family meal pleasurable after a well-intentioned but unsucessful period of forcing the new rules abruptly. This is a family I want to cook for me and be my friends!

    Definitely recommend especially for new mothers

    I wish I had this book when my kids were little. It has always been a struggle to get them to eat well. This book does offer practical advice and inspiration. I haven't tried the recipes yet but I plan too. I love the incite into the French culture, always interesting.

    very interesting

    As a parent of a picky 6 year old, I found the book very interesting. It also gave me things to think about in how we all eat at home. Unfortunately, the quiche recipe is not edible as written. I don't think its like any quiche I've ever had, including in France, and we had to throw most of it away.
