A Kid-Friendly Way To Learn About Nutrition

It can be difficult to explain healthy eating and nutrition to children but this book makes it fun and easy. Tansy Boggons’ educational picture book will help kids understand the benefits of different foods. They’ll learn, for example, about vitamin c in oranges, how to combine certain foods to work as a team, and how to prepare potatoes with a splash olive oil instead of deep-frying them.

I really love this book as a conversation starter with kids about the importance of eating a wide variety of foods. Sometimes children can be picky eaters, but this picture book takes the stress out of discussing meal time and might help open your child up to trying new foods.
