Getting our kids to eat healthy food is definitely one of the hardest tasks that a mother has to face, especially if your youngster is a bit of a picky eater. And finding ways that will encourage healthy habits from an early age are always welcomed.
The founder of KAN (Know About Nutrition) and nutrition expert Maria O'Brien is aware of how important healthy eating is, and her book The Food Adventures of Captain Kan and Friends is the perfect way to help teach kids all about nutrition and good food.
The book, which is available for download, is aimed at kids aged 5-6 and 7-9 and has three goals: to help you understand what foods help your body best and know which ones don't, to help you plan what foods to eat everyday, and to help you feel good and full of energy.
Through the story of Kev and Bev and along with a number of activities including Captain KAN hopscotch, the book teaches kids all about the right kinds of foods to eat and why it is so important. At the end of each activity there is a goal - once your youngster has seen all the goals they can decide which is their favourite to make as part of their daily routine.
There is also plenty of healthy eating information at the back along with a number of tasty recipes for parents who need a little help in the right direction.
A fun way to get kids into healthy habits, this is definitely a must-have for mums who simply can't get fruit or veg into their youngster.
