Book alert: Getting to Yum
Karen Le Billon. Getting to Yum: The 7 Secrets of Raising Eager Eaters. HarperCollins, 2014
I’m a big fan of Le Billon’s work (see comments on her previous book) and also blurbed this one, as you can tell from the cover. Here’s the whole blurb:
What I love best about Getting to Yum is how it celebrates the fun and joy of parenting—even of picky eaters. Following Le Billon’s advice and playing the games described in this book should make it a pleasure to teach kids about delicious food, encourage healthier eating habits, and counter the relentless marketing of junk food, without ever turning the dinner table into a battlefield. Any parent eager to get kids to eat vegetables must read this instant classic right now.
