A wide variety of HABA toys and games have been honored with awards for exceptional design. Since 1993, no fewer than six HABA games received the "Children's game of the Year" award.

You're there to be entertaining").

French Kids' Food Rule # 1: Food is not a pacifier, a distraction, a bribe, a toy, substitute for discipline, or a reward." From FRENCH KIDS EAT EVERYTHING Karen Le Billon, a Canadian who moved her young family to her husband's hometown in Northern France, was prepared for some cultural adjustment. What she didn't bank on was being lectured in the market for slipping her fussing toddler a snack"a recipe for obesity!" or forbidden from sending her daughter to school with a few healthy treats she knew she'd prefer over the elaborate meal on offer. Over time, however, Le Billon begins to see the wisdom in a simple set of unwritten "food rules" that govern how the French foster healthy eating habits and good manners in babies and children. Accustomed to her own children's limited likes, and presuming that food battles are simply part of the fun of raising kids, she observes that French kids willingly eat everything -- from fruit salad to foie gras, potato chips to snails, spinach to stinky blue cheese -- and that this practice is considered normal by everyone, including the kids! Moreover, with diets almost unheard of for French children, Le Billon discovers yet another version of the famous French paradox: while French kids love to eat, they are rarely overweight. Combining personal anecdotes with recipes (like Five Minute Fish en Papillote, Baby's Vichyssoise, Crepes, Zesty Orange Salad, and Mousse Au Chocolat) and practical tips, FRENCH KIDS EAT EVERYTHING provides a humorous, provocative look at the way we feed our kids.
