I remember reading my children stories right before they went to sleep. Of course that was when they were little and that was quite a while ago. But I still keep an eye out for cute stories that parents can read to their children that have a healthy message.
Well, I found a cute story with a healthy message that your child might enjoy for storytime. It's called Sending you Sammy by Sarah Butland. A cute little story with happy artwork about a little boy who is chosen to be a superhero because he likes healthy foods. He becomes BananaBoy and is tasked to help his friends eat healthier too.
What I love is story time is another fun and memorable time to promote healthy eating in a fun and positive way. I tested it out on my 6 year old niece and she had lots of questions which gave me the opportunity to talk about the importance of healthy foods and how it makes her grow and do well in school and have energy to have fun and more.
That is what this is all about. It is about reaching out to children in many different ways and introducing healthy foods in fun, creative and positive ways. There are many ways to introduce nutrition and reinforce it.
We have started a list of healthy storytime books for kids below. If you have a special or creative way that you help your children eat healthier, please share it with us by leaving a comment.
