When she moved 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.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator is not French. I am not French, either, but even limited junior high school French classes gave me the ability to recognize a butchered French accent. It became a bit painful toward the middle/end of the audio book.

Did French Kids Eat Everything inspire you to do anything?

This book changed my approach to feeding my toddler in important ways!
