I bought this book for my two year old granddaughter and have not yet given it to her, but look forward to watching her enjoy it and learn about healthy eating as she gets a bit older.
We are healthy eaters but I still struggle with my kids wanting typical American kid food!
After reading this, my 6 year old was at the store with me and said “I want to go get fruit and healthy snacks mom”!
We talk about health all the time but it was great for them to visualize and hear it from somewhere else! I’m going to let my younger sons 4 year old class read it as they’ve been talking about germs and health at school.
Thanks for making a fun but educational book to encourage good eating!
I fell in love with the buddies and knew we needed this book, hoping my kids would jump on board. They love the buddies. They play with the plushes, we talk at the dinner table about what each of the buddies like and they are excited to make healthy choices. The back page tear-out is up on our fridge
My kids LOVE the book and were thrilled to learn about the buddies in their bellies. They now ask for "avocados to feed Lactie" etc. My five-year-old called her mom who had borrowed the book to remind her which buddy liked kale. My seven-year-old grabbed raw kale from the grocery bag and started munching on it so he could feed his internal buddies. I was stunned with how much they took the information in the book to heart and how motivating it was for them! I can't recommend the book highly enough. Every household in the world needs this book!!!
