How many of your children/grandchildren do not eat many fruits or vegetables? I hear from a LOT of parents how hard it is to get their children to eat healthy, and I just keep saying, "Don't give up trying!" A wide variety of fruits and especially vegetables in our diets has so many health benefits, that we have to try whatever it takes to help our children (and maybe ourselves) see the value and deliciousness hidden in these foods.
One way I have kept my children asking for more veggies is by offering them books to read and explore about produce from an early age on. Healthy Foods from A to Z is one of the best that I have seen, and I am hoping it will be in your child's library soon!
My children LOVE this book. They cannot get enough of it. I think part of the reason is that there is so much packed into this beautifully illustrated book. From featuring multiple fruits and veggies in English and Spanish for each letter to lots of healthy food projects you can try and interesting facts about each of the veggies/fruit in the book, there is so much to learn and so much to explore!
Here is an example of the page for letter J and K. My kids got such a kick out of the funny faces on each page of the book!
No matter whether your kids are already champion veggie/fruit eaters or don't want to get near them with a 10 foot pole, this is a great book that you and your children will enjoy and learn a lot from!
Find it on Amazon.com, and enjoy!
