Getting children to eat healthy is certainly a challenge. I struggle with feeding my toddler on a daily basis and I know many Moms are in the same situation. Sometimes kids just need an extra fun push in the right directions to eat fun and colorful foods. I remember how much I loved activity books as a younger version of myself, and combining the idea of activity books with the concept of healthy, mindful eating results in a fun book and teachable experience.
I received a copy of this lovely book called If It Does Not Grow, Say No to check it out and share it with you. This book is full of flow charts, activities, and checklists to engage kids in thinking and talking about food as they experience it and try something new. There are so many fun pages in this book with talking points and questions to get kids thinking about food in a positive way.
While my 19 month old is a bit young to really have a conversation about food, other than pointing, I’m going to enjoy introducing some of the activities in this book to him when he’s ready. Fruits and veggies are a beautiful and delicious part of eating, and I want him to enjoy them as well.
You can even visit the website and download some activity challenges for fruits testing, veggie testing, and there’s even a dessert challenge.
If It Does Not Grow – Say No Eatable Activities for Kids was created for children of all ages to discover how much fun they can have with fruits and vegetables. They will be entertained for hours as they:
