Dianne Warren discusses healthy habits and the issue of obesity with Linord Moudou on Voice of America (VOA) Health Chat.

January 29, 2019

Parents must give kids the skills to lead a healthy life…and create an association between what they eat and how they feel….kids catch on so much faster and understand so much more than we think they do.

We must talk to their higher self and tell them the dreams we have for them to be healthy and how we get there.

Vegetable Soup / The Fruit Bowl

is a flip-flop book on nutrition for young children. Through colorful illustrations and rhyming verse, children are introduced to the connection between what they eat and how they look, feel and perform. In addition to giving information about the health benefits, uses and growing patterns of fruits and vegetables, the book also provides opportunities to develop math and reading readiness skills using nutrition as the teaching tool.

Hop-A-Lot, The Healthy Habits Rabbit

is as a story/coloring book and an entertaining way to teach children the importance of choosing healthy habits. Hop-A-Lot shows kids how our habits of diet, rest, exercise, elimination, attitude and cleanliness are influenced by our food and drink choices. Since coloring is an activity that children and parents can share, the additional boxed information on each verse page helps adults reinforce the importance of the habit being covered.

Farmers’ Market Game

Have fun while building an awareness of and appreciation for fruits and vegetables. Farmers’ Market is a 2-sided game board with instructions in English and Spanish. Support your local Farmer’s Market and enjoy food at its freshest. Have fun and eat local!

Food for thought…

"Our children look to us to show them how to live lives that are healthy and meaningful. Teaching them that natural foods are fun is an act of love and care. Teaching them that vegetables and fruits are their friends and allies is wonderful. Vegetable Soup and The Fruit Bowl serve this purpose beautifully.
