Nordic lunch gets diners in party mode

A few lucky diners got another chance to sample Nordic dining fixture FINDS' special eighth-anniversary menu. The fare was delicious, with the usual stand-out dishes of salmon six ways and banana toffee pie. This lunch, however, had more of a festive feel, with classic FINDS cocktails resurrected for the event.

Vary your strategies to solve the case of the reluctant eater

I'm having difficulty getting my daughter to eat her lunch at school. She often eats the snacks, but the healthy food comes home untouched. She says she does not have enough time to eat her food in the classroom and sometimes has to eat it in the playground. I spoke to her teacher, who said she would talk to the lunch supervisor, but it has made little difference.
