it was amazing

This is an interesting look at food culture and parenting culture in France and North America. Some of the practices that the writer documents like no snacking, slow eating, respectful eating, and varied eating really struck me. The most earth-shattering epiphany I had while reading this book actually came as I read the back of the book (ha!): Don't snack, it's okay to be hungry between meals! What a revelation! However, I found the actually writing of the book somewhat repetive and predictable. I did make a quiche and french vinagrette last night for dinner (which was enjoyed somewhat laboriously around the table) so obviously some of her points hit home with me. Overall, I would say that this is an interesting read to help you re-evaluate your eating habits and food outlook - especially with respect to what you teach your children.
