The intention of my children’s books is to make food fun, foster curiosity with food, learn that not all foods are to everyone’s liking and that there are many ways to eat to meet our body’s nutritional requirements while enjoying food.


THE SUPERHEROES ON YOUR PLATE

Cover of the children's book, The Superheroes on Your Plate

Every food at the dinner table competes for the title of superhero on your plate.

Which food will claim the title?

From avocado to kiwi and around to egg and look out for brown rice! Each food is on a mission to declare themselves the winner. It may be hard to digest at times, but some have an incredibly good reason for being a true champion.

You will have to help them decide…

Combine story time with educating children about nutrition and inspiring them to eat a wider variety of wholefoods. This book aims to be a conversation starter as to what other foods children would bring to the plate as superheroes, either because they enjoy them or for health-promoting benefits. Who will be the plate superhero?

A joy of a book that puts the fun into teaching kids about nutrition and getting them to love the healthy foods on their plate.” — Dr Joanna McMillan, Nutrition Scientist & Dietitian

Instead of saying “don’t eat that” or “this food is better than that food” this lovely little book shows how a little bit of every food can contribute to a nutritious plate. It shows how every different element adds its own benefit to the variety of kai (food) we eat in a fun and light-hearted way, inviting tamariki (children) to be naturally curious about the food they eat.”Garden to Table Trust, NZ
