Just starting this book and already I'm hooked.

Best blurb so far: "..from the French perspective North American parents often cram schedules so full that little time is spent teaching kids some of its most basic, important things they need to know, like the proper way to prepare, cook, and eat healthy food. In order to explain to myself how important this really was, I finally settled on a simple comparison. French parents think about healthy eating habits the way North American parents think about toilet training, or reading. If you children consistently refused to read or even learn the alphabet, would you give up trying to teach them? Would you be content to wait for you children to toilet train by themselves, assuming that they'd eventually "grow out of it" or "figure it out"? Probably not."

Fascinating. I admit though, I wasn't interesting in cooking and preparing food growing up. I wanted to get to the eating part. :)
