Beginning The Discussion On Food Education

So, here goes nothing.  My first foray into vlogging!

The next video (filmed right after this) will be published later today.  Stay tuned!


  1. First, it's such a wonderful way to hear your voice! You did great! I'm so looking forward to the discussions. Cheers!

  2. Wow, that's the first time I have heard your voice! It's funny, I have been following your blog from the very first post, and I didn't expect you to sound like that! It's funny the preconceived notions that can build up over time.


  3. Hi, this was great! Re. your voice - I was watching He's Just Not That Into You on TV last night and I thought of you anyway, since it's set in Baltimore; but now, you sound just like Drew Barrymore! Cool!

  4. I don't even have kids and I'm looking forward to hearing about this for me!!

  5. I agree with Ping, it's great to hear your voice!!

    My son is grown and married to a great woman who is a fabulous cook. I must have done something right because most times when he's asked if something is good his response is "yay food!" I always tried to get him to have just a taste of something, I couldn't begin to count the number of times we discussed brussel sprouts!! As an adult he seems to have continued with that "at least give it a try" attitude.

    Looking forward to hearing what you've found works for Nora.

  6. Thanks everyone! I'm not a huge fan of my own voice (which G tells me is absolutely normal, but whatever). And I think Drew Barrymore is awesome, so I'll take that as a compliment!

    Stephanie, I found as I was reading the book and trying to come up with a good way to explain how we've done things with Nora that it made me really think about how I do things myself. The book is written about kids, but because so many of us were raised with (and continued) bad habits I sort of have to re-evaluate my own choices first!

    Jackie, I think that attitude is perfect! It's sad to say, but I've had more issues with adults than children with the try everything rule. And nothing is more infuriating at a dinner party than watching people have weird food issues not eat what you worked hard on!
