Are mealtimes with your kids a source of frustration? Ever wonder how on earth to get them to eat the recommended five servings of fruits and veggies per day (or even per week)?
Getting to YUM is a practical and engaging guide for parents eager to get past their children’s food resistance—or to avoid it altogether. It introduces 7 Secrets of Raising Eager Eaters. (Secret 1: Teach your child to eat, just like you teach them to read! Secret 6: “Teach me to do it myself.” Kid participation is every parent’s secret weapon.) Karen Le Billon, author of French Kids Eat Everything, coaches readers through the process of taste training, including strategies, games and experiments that will encourage even reluctant eaters to branch out. Over 100 delicious, kid-tested, age-appropriate recipes lead families step-by-step through the process of learning to love new foods, enabling kids to really enjoy the foods we know they should be eating.
Wise and compelling, Getting to YUM is grounded in revolutionary new research on the science of taste. Packed full of observations from real-life families, it provides everything parents need to transform their children—from babies to toddlers to teens—into good eaters for life.
