Worried about having put on weight over the holidays?

We should probably be even more concerned about the weight our children have put on over the same period. In 2007 a UNICEF study reported that Canadian children ranked second worst among developed countries in terms of obesity.

Front COVER At the Table 3[1]

If you’re interested in the connection between this problem and the declining frequency with which our children share meals and conversation with their parents, then come and hear a discussion of At the Table: Nourishing Conversation and Food at the Deer Park branch of the Toronto Public Library, 40 St. Clair Ave. E., Tuesday, January 15, 2012 2.00 p.m.-3.30 p.m.

Rather than doom and gloom, however, the book is really a celebration of family and friends gathering around the dinner table for good food and conversation. So, in a similar vein, most of the talk will focus on entertaining tales shared at dinnertime, with only a smattering of alarming statistics.
