Invest in Kid-Friendly Nutrition Books

With kids ages 5 to 8, look for appealing picture books that are designed to educate them about basic health and nutritional information and empower them to make the right food choices. There are several great ones out there, Zied says, including dietitian Connie Liakos Evers’ Nutrition Fun with Brocc & Roll and Good for You! Both books offer hands-on activities and playful games, quizzes and trivia items to assess and stimulate kids’ knowledge of proper nutrition. Other highly rated options: Good Enough to Eat by Lizzy Rockwell and The Vegetables We Eat by Gail Gibbons.
