It includes information and fun ideas the whole family can use to be healthy and fit. Kai also discusses common food-related health issues that can be fixed with proper diet.
Why You Need This Book.
Kids are notoriously picky eaters so teaching them to actually crave and enjoy healthy foods is no easy task. This book encourages kids to make nutritious food choices and to be adventurous with their healthy eating.
Good nutrition is important for kids and luckily many parents know this. What they don’t know however, is simply providing kids with healthy food is not enough. It’s just as important for kids to learn about healthy food as it is to eat it. Children are at a time in their life when they are constantly growing and learning new knowledge so that’s why habits are more likely to stay with you if you learn them as a kid.
The concepts discussed in this book are complex but accessible to kids. Filled with cartoons, pictures, and factoids, the book is as entertaining and informative for parents as it is for their kids.
“We are the next generation and we need to be healthy,” says Kai who is on a crusade to make his generation live longer healthier lives through nutritious eating. Though he may be young, Kai’s message has already spread to many families across the U.S. Here are some things families have said after reading this book:
“I can’t wait to see how many lives this book changes – both young and old.”
“An amazing book about our body and how to get it well, written for kids by a kid.”
