Hi, I'm Kate, mum and dietitian, on a mission to get kids to love veggies - without pleading or pressuring.
Together with my own children, we created What If Vegetables Were People so that children worldwide could have a positive and fun experience with colourful veggies!
Children need multiple exposures to vegetables to help them learn to enjoy eating veggies and reduce fussy eating. This includes exposure both at and away from the table. Reading is a great way to familiarise kids with foods.
My children, Elijah (11), Oliver (9), Ari (6) and Lily (4) created the ideas and storyline for our book. They looked at the veggies and designed their unique personalities and we made fun rhymes together to appeal to other kids.
If you think about how we teach kids to read, we don't start with Harry Potter ... it's a journey. We first teach them the alphabet through songs, play and books.
It's time to do the same thing with food education.
he book is now written and illustrated but we need your support to bring this project to life. We will be using the money raised to pay for a graphic designer to make it print ready and to pay the printing costs of our first print run.
Please help us get What If Vegetables Were People into homes, kinders, libraries and schools around the world, so kids everywhere can have a positive food experience, through this first-of-its-kind book!
You can make a pledge, or pre-pay a copy of the book for yourself... or buy multiple copies as great educational gifts to arrive in time for Christmas.
Please support us in bringing this book to life and raise veggies loving kids! Pledge here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/937734237/what-if-vegetables-were-people?
We'd love it if you would share it with your friend and family too!
