I have been trying to teach the kids to eat better but if I’m not eating healthy then why should they, or at least that is what they think. Well I recently started changing the way I eat and the foods I eat by joining a program that helps you choose the right foods to eat and how much you should be eating by measuring your foods in containers. Let’s face it eating healthy doesn’t happen over night but starting with small steps its a big step in the right direction. I have been telling the kids how important vegetables and fruits are and how we should eat them daily. Even though I have a picky eater he is beginning to slowly open his mind to other foods and give them a try. The boys really enjoyed this book and I did so myself. I love that the kids are able to read “child” related books that are related to healthy, learning topics. This is a book your child would love to read and also meet the fun characters along the way.
