Review

Any parent eager to get kids to eat vegetables must read this instant classic right now. Getting to YUM makes 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. (Marion Nestle, author of Eat Drink Vote: An Illustrated Guide to Food Politics)

Get ready for children who have healthy attitudes toward food and not only eat their veggies but like them, too. I absolutely love the idea of teaching them to eat well through the Taste Training program-a true ‘fix’ for picky eaters!” (Lisa Leake, author of 100 Days of Real Food)

Want your kids to be food lovers? Karen takes away the pressure, stress, and frustration of mealtime with interactive food games and simple recipes that make eating a joy for the whole family! (Catherine McCord, author of Weelicious)

“French Kids Eat Everything first introduced parents to the concept that kids actually need to be taught to become good eaters… Getting to Yum provides the necessary follow up, giving parents step-by-step strategies, recipes, and age-appropriate games to address some of the most common mealtime struggles.” (Booktrib)

From the Back Cover

The science of Taste Training will take your kids from "yuck" to "yum!"

Teach your kids to eat, just as you teach them to read

Mealtimes with kids are often a battleground, with parents trying to force one more bite and kids resisting and protesting. But it doesn't need to be this way. Getting to YUM guides parents in teaching their children—whether babies, toddlers, or big kids—to enjoy eating all kinds of foods. Tested by families across North America, this new taste-training method prevents and cures picky eating while putting the fun back into food! This fun, easy-to-use book includes:

  • The seven secrets of successful taste training.
  • Fun games and experiments based on hands-on education and the latest scientific research.
  • 85 healthy, easy, tasty recipes for babies, toddlers, young children, teenagers—and even adults!
  • A unique flavor ladder approach that teaches kids to love eating a wide range of foods.
  • Real-life success stories from families who have used these techniques to train good eaters for life!

Format: Paperback
Background: I also read Le Billon's first book, French Kids Eat Everything, when my oldest was 2 yrs and I had a newborn daughter. (My kids are now almost 4, 2, and 1 yrs). It is the best primer in transforming oneself to a happy food lifestyle---I made the greatest changes in myself. Soon after our family adopted the manner of and attitudes toward eating she explains, we had major life events that took me away from menu planning, meal prep, and table time.

THIS BOOK: is helping me adjust what I learned 2 years ago (but lost because I wasn't able to practice it very long) to our new life situation. I cook a real meal every single night, often stress free, and the kids always eat what we eat. Period. I used to see food I'd never tried as something I never would try. Now, I see a strange combination of flavors or completely new flavors or objects in a dish and I think, "I wonder how this will surprise me and what I'll like about it." Thus when our four friends visited us in Seattle last January, we took our three kids age 3 years and under to the best restaurants for three dinners and two brunches. Among other delights we served them sea urchin, bone marrow, coconut jellied bites, and rich desserts, sips of strong wine, and aromas galore. My kids and I have lost all interest in repetitive home menus and most processed foods; they don't like staples such as quesadillas, mac n cheese, chicken nuggets, burgers. (They do like pizza and PBJ, but so do I!) The hardest nut to crack has been my husband, but after getting this book and getting back into new recipes and tastes, he said he's coming around.

This book is worth the buy for KIDS because:
1. It offers a practical, tangible, accessible way to create happy & healthy attitudes toward food in any family situation.

As a pediatric feeding specialist, I was pleased to read a book that focused on keeping the fun in trying new foods! Whether your child is a hesitant eater or an emerging foodie, I know that parents will appreciate the practical ideas that Karen Le Billon outlines in Getting to Yum. Easy to digest and easy to implement, the games and strategies outlined in her book will get the whole family engaged in exploring new foods.

A good book, would have been 4 stars but as I had read the authors previous book "French kids eat everything" I recommend either book but not both as this book is just a summary of the other.

Whichever you decide to read the takeaway is the same and worthwile.

Contrary to what another reviewer has written, this is not just a summary of le Billon's other book. For a start it is over a hundred pages longer! But the crucial difference is that 'French Kids' was an autobiographical account of what happened to Karen's family and how their tastes, habits and attitudes towards food changed whilst living in France for a year. It is a story of the food related differences between two cultures, and a slow transformation in her family's food consumption, and culinary and table habits. While you can glean many hints and tips from the former book it is essentially a (very interesting) story. The '7 Secrets', however, is a very practical guide to solving the problem of fussy young eaters. Furthermore, she has backed up her recommendations, and quoted many studies from good quality academic journals, as well as conducting her own studies on 65 or more young children. This is a very well researched book (the author is a professor), yet simple to read and easy to put into practice. Get it! Don't delay. It's working for me and I've only just started putting her tips into practice. My son is now always tasting a little, and sometimes eating a good portion of foods that would have been thrown back at me a week or two ago. I see light at the end of the tunnel!
