If You Want Your Kids to Eat Healthier, Get This Book

According to the Centers for Disease Control, childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years. Childhood obesity is constantly in the news, most recently with First Lady Michelle Obama calling on a food marketing summit to ask companies to stop advertising unhealthy food to kids. Okay, but what we can do starting at home? I had the opportunity to review Green Smoothie Magic by best selling food author Victoria Boutenko and I’m in love. It’s a wonderful kids book that serves as a response to the crisis of childhood obesity with a story that makes children excited about nutrition and healthy foods.

This beautiful illustrated kids book follows young Nic as he discovers the importance of healthy eating with a plant-rich diet. Nic is a inquisitive kid who learns from his father that since humans can’t grow with sunlight alone and we don’t make our own magical green juice, we need to eat plants to grow big and strong.

Wanting to grow big and strong, Nic is determined to eat more vegetables but he is disheartened by the bitter taste of lettuce. What to do? His mother buys a blender and whips up some raw-food green smoothie magic. While Nic is hesitant at first, his curiosity wins out and he is soon asking for seconds. What I love is how making the smoothie involved the entire family and showed the importance of getting kids involved in the making of their food.

The story ends with Nic’s own smoothie recipe. Combining sweet fruits with green vegetables, this kids’ food recipe promises to be a favorite with children and picky eaters everywhere.

If you have a kid or if know of a family who would benefit from this book, you can buy it here (early holiday gift, maybe?).
