BEECHBORO, Australia (PRWEB) June 04, 2012
Childhood obesity is a growing issue causing many government initiatives to try to rectify the problem. In New York – as was reported in the recent Bloomberg article “School Obesity Rate Dips in New York From Healthy-Habit Programs” – city officials set up programs to offer healthy food options while educating children about healthy eating and staying active. Taking on the sentiment of this noble charge in his new children’s storybook “A Vegie Adventures” (published by Trafford Publishing), author Arty Erlich weaves a tale to teach young children about vegetables.
Erlich’s “A Vegie Adventures” takes place in a grocery store after hours. Once all of the people leave the store, the food comes to life, engaging in adventures and interacting with each other in their own little world.
The vegetables in the story are all friends who stand for treating each other with kindness, but they are at odds with the “bad lollies,” which are the unhealthy foods partying in aisle 13.
Erlich hopes his story will not only teach children about which foods are healthy but also how to resolve a conflict when it arises.
A simple storybook with bright, colorful characters, “A Vegie Adventures” will delight children with its fun adventure and vibrant illustrations, and will also please parents who want their children to learn about healthy eating and how to treat others.
