Want Them to Eat More Fruits and Veggies?
It's Time to Get Creative!
Encouraging youngsters to eat more fruits and vegetables is easy when you help them start exploring the amazing shapes that can be found on our plates (and in fields, Farmers' Markets, gardens, and grocery stores).
How? Dual themes of creativity and good nutrition are the focus of I See A Star, this latest children's picture book by Dr. Peggy Sissel-Phelan. Using vibrant photo illustrations of over 50 different fruits and vegetables, the book promotes healthy growth in both body and mind as kids learn to identify dozens of geometric shapes while improving their observation skills, sparking their imaginations, and helping them become familiar with all the goodness nature gives us.
Exposure and interest are the first step in getting kids (and the adults in their lives) to taste something new, and this book's novel approach to promoting produce is a recipe for success. Entertaining, whimsical, and thought provoking, readers both young and old will never look at fruits and vegetables in the same way as curiosity makes all kinds of fresh foods become interesting, attractive, and compelling - even to those who insist "they don't like vegetables!"
Before you know it, looking and buying, cooking and trying can become the new theme in your household, school, or program. And, if each week you try one new fruit or vegetable you see in I See A Star, imagine the shape you'll be in!
