French Kids Eat Everything: Check Out The French Food Rules

Sometimes, it seems that the American diet is often too restrictive and too focused on weight loss. The American approach to dieting is focused more on eating the foods that are less pleasing, meaning when the time comes to indulge on foods that taste good we often over-indulge.

Whereas, the food culture in France is more about pleasure. The French diet is structured on a different, less guilt-driven approach, focusing in on the importance of eating a more colorful variety of foods.

In this infographic from the book French Kids Eat Everything, you can see we can help get our kids (and ourselves) back to eating healthfully by not restricting enjoyable foods. Here you can see that eating with your family is really important. It is at the dinner table where you can introduce foods to your kids and teach them the importance of tasting new foods.
