Editorial Reviews

Review

“Engaging.... Admirably well-researched.... A well-timed eye-opener.”
—Chris Nuttall-Smith, The Globe and Mail
 
“I’m a newly minted Jeannie Marshall fan. [Outside the Box] didn’t disappoint.... Jeannie’s writing is a delight. Very easy to read, warm and engaging…. A wonderful read and one I’d recommend to everyone, and especially to families with young children.... Brilliant.”
Weighty Matters

Outside the Box is about teaching kids how to appreciate real food but also about how globalization is changing the way the world eats. In this beautifully written book about what needs to be done to preserve food culture in Italy and elsewhere, Marshall makes the political personal as she explains how she is teaching her son to enjoy the pleasures of eating food prepared, cooked, and lovingly shared by friends and family.”
—Marion Nestle, Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University, and author of What to Eat
 
“An illuminating personal account of a journey that we all need to take: from the product in a box back to real food. Jeannie Marshall shows that parents know better than corporations what’s good for kids, and how solving the nutrition and obesity crisis will nourish generations to come.”
—Theresa Albert, registered nutritionist and author of Ace Your Health: 52 Ways to Stack Your Deck

Enjoyed reading this book. Lots of food for thought. Felt it ended a little abruptly, though. Was a good read, so was hoping it would have gone on longer.
