Picture books are a great way to expose children to new foods they may not have tried before. Reading about new foods is like free advertising and reduces the amount of encouragement needed for a child to willingly give it a go. Whilst we know storytelling helps promote vegetable consumption, to encourage adventurous eating exposure to a wide range of vegetables is required. To help increase this exposure, we’ve compiled a list of books to add to your school or classroom library.

Hero healthy habits

Encouraging children to eat well is supported by setting a good example and providing a positive space where healthy eating habits are normal practice. When children see that healthy eating habits are part of the daily routine, and have repeated exposure to positive and consistent messaging, they are more likely to adopt these healthy habits themselves. The classroom provides the perfect place for promoting, modelling and encouraging healthy eating habits.
