Meet Connie Carrot and her friends, designed to help you teach
your kids about healthy eating.
If you want your child to eat healthy foods, educate them and encourage them to eat a variety of healthy foods at as young an age as possible. It has been scientifically proven that if children are introduced to healthy foods at an early age they are much more likely to eat healthy foods when they get older.
After years of helping people with their nutrition I am convinced that the best way to change public attitude to food and diet, and therefore health, is to learn early. It is hard in adulthood to change long ingrained eating habits, even when the consequences could be life changing. Healthy eating should start at a young age and be continually learned over a lifetime. Teaching children how to eat healthily is a gift for life.
NutriKids books were created to help parents, teachers and guardians to not only to get children to eat and enjoy vegetables and fruit, but also to help them to understand why these foods are so important, in the hope that each child will grow up with a natural inclination to include healthy foods in their diet.
Today we live in an age where many foods do not have the nutrition required to stay healthy for life.
Adding healthy vegetables and fruits every day (especially organic) is one of the best ways to support children’s health for now and the future of their health. NutriKids Books are here to help plant the seeds of knowledge and a desire for better health.

"Good nutrition supports a child’s
immune system, brain function,
growth and repair, and lays a
foundation to support recovery of
any health issues they may have
like childhood diseases,
vaccinations and injuries."
Teaching tools available for to go with the Books
"We were thrilled to receive the Nutrikids books and share them with the class.
To be honest, the books were so lovely and relevant to the FS topic that all 3 classes were keen
to use them. We shared them out and used them as a class and also let children explore them
independently during play."
"We used the books to discuss healthy eating, where the healthy
food comes from etc.
We also put a set in the book corner for children to look through.
They are really lovely books whichare easy for the children to
understand and we are also using them in our current topic
which is 'Down on the Farm'."
