Teaching nutrition to kids isn’t always easy. You need some tools to teach nutrition, and they have to be on par with kids’ development and, of course, include sound nutrition principles and advice.
I have been accumulating some child-centric books and games that help with teaching nutrition to children and I am giving them away!
If you have children or work with children (teacher, physician, RD), these books will help you teach the topic of nutrition to the kids you work with or are raising. Here’s a brief summary of each giveaway (4 in total):
1. Farmer’s Market Game

3. Hop-A-Lot, The Healthy Habits Rabbit & Vegetable Soup/The Fruit Bowl by Dianne Warren
The Healthy Habits Rabbit: This coloring book/story book emphasizes the importance of establishing healthy habits, including diet, rest, exercise, attitude and cleanliness, and how they are related to food choice.
Vegetable Soup/The Fruit Bowl is really 2 books in one! Using colorful illustrations and rhyming verse, children are introduced to the connection between what they eat and how they feel, look and perform. Children will learn about the health benefits, uses and growth patterns of many different fruits and vegetables.
4. Lainy’s Polite Bite by Emma J. Fogt
A story about Lainy the Ladybug, who only liked to drink Bug Juice, and didn’t want to try any new food. Her friend, Benny Bumblebee helps her try a polite bite, which opens her mind and palate to try additional new foods. A sweet story for young children to learn that trying a new food, while scary, can be done with success!
