Description

A lively story of raising a child to enjoy real food in a processed world, and the importance of maintaining healthy food cultures
 
In Italy, children traditionally sat at the table with the adults eating everything from anchovies to artichokes. Their appreciation of seasonal, regional foods influenced their food choices and this passing down of traditions turned Italy into a world culinary capital. But now, parents worldwide are facing the same problems as American families with the aggressive marketing of processed foods and the prevalence of junk food wherever children gather. While struggling to raise her child, Nico, on a natural, healthy, traditional Italian diet, Jeannie Marshall, a Canadian who lives in Rome, sets out to discover how such a time-tested food culture could change in such a short time. At once an exploration of the U.S. food industry’s global reach and a story of finding the best way to feed her child, The Lost Art of Feeding Kids will appeal to parents, food policy experts, and fans of great food writing alike.

      • content: "Engaging . . . admirably well-researched . . . a well-timed eye-opener." --Chris Nuttal-Smith, The Globe and Mail "The Lost Art of Feeding Kids 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, Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University and author of Food Politics and What to Eat "The book is a marvelous read because the story is so deceptively simple: one family's experience of Italian food (with luscious, lingering descriptions of fresh produce and oh-so-satisfying meals). But this is much more than a personal story (fascinating as it is). Marshall also discusses food marketing, nutrition policy, and the food industry--using examples from around the world. Her personal story is thus placed in a broader context; the book is both informative yet accessibly written (not an easy task!)." --Karen Le Billon, author of French Kids Eat Everything "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 "A game-changer. Part manifesto, part family story, it's about the disappearance of 'real food,' as the title suggests, but more than anything, it's about the value of 'food culture' in ensuring a healthy and sustainable food system for kids and adults alike. Anyone with an interest in children and food (parents, teachers, activists, educators) or the politics of the food system should run out and get it now. Jeannie's easy-to-read style and chilling, clear-eyed marshalling of the facts makes it a standout among food books."

        In this slow food/locavore manifesto with a secondary theme of hand-wringing about feeding children, a Canadian journalist living in Rome shares her experience of trying to feed her baby in the traditional Italian style and segues into an exploration of why European food culture is giving way to Americanized processed, packaged, and industrially produced foods. Marshall wistfully describes shopping in farmer’s markets, feeding her baby a simple brodo with pureed bits of the family’s evening meal, and meeting Italians who wouldn’t dare chomp on a fine pastry on the street. The author laments that Italians are failing to transmit this food culture to the next generation, instead giving their kids bland and convenient baby formulas, sugary cereals, and fast food. She takes large companies like Nestlé and Pepsi to task for philanthropic policies and programs that aim to offer better nutrition to children with whole-grain, lower-fat versions of processed foods, among other issues, disputing their claims that the global poor and malnourished can’t afford a whole foods approach to health. Not only does Marshall see the U.S. exporting obesity and reduced crop diversity, she sees cultural traditions being lost abroad. Though Marshall is not the most evocative writer, nor the most effective advocate, her point that parents need to think about the future when feeding their kids is an important one.

        December 15, 2013
        Teaching kids "to learn the simple pleasures of the table and to appreciate the taste of real food." The childhood obesity epidemic gets a fair amount of coverage in the American press, often with a slant on how unhealthy eating leaves us less competitive in the global marketplace. The eating habits abroad have shifted as well, however; as American exports of fast food, convenience foods and cooking shortcuts have seeped into other cultures, the health effects have slowly emerged. Journalist Marshall and her husband moved to Italy in the early 2000s and immersed themselves in the food culture. Childless, they were free to indulge in the authentic cuisine of their new home. When the author gave birth to their first child, the family's shopping needs shifted to include an extra mouth to feed. Marshall began to perceive a subtle change--at first slight, with parent-peers still working to incorporate classical traditions in their cooking, but increasingly toward convenience foods as her son started school. The author explores the changes in eating on both a macro and micro level--how global economics has shifted the priority for simple carbohydrates into regions and countries with their own storied cultures and patterns of eating, based off generations of cuisine built around locally produced foods. Marshall also examines the public relations machine that offers a solution for harried mothers and fathers who go into parenting with the best of intentions but find their resolve eroded by a constant message from the food industry to buy cereal bars, crackers, cookies and yogurt and feel satisfied about it--maybe it's organic or doesn't contain high-fructose corn syrup, and it's "packed with nutrients." Marshall's clear, direct book ably captures the frustrations of trying to find the healthiest path and inspiring kids to do the same.
