The Foodies Books – 12 monthly vegetable stories set in a veggie patch. Get kids eating veggies! A great gift for fussy eaters, little foodies, little cooks or gardeners.
If you’re looking for a cool gift for a child in your life that you can buy once but will last throughout the year, this set of all 12 veggie patch books could be just the thing!
The books encourage children to make friends with fruits and veggies and learn where their food comes from, so they are more likely to try new foods and have less stress at the dinner table.
This set contains whole year of stories and recipes from the garden. There is a different book for each month of the year, and each month in our veggie patch a fruit or vegetable character has an adventure. All of the characters, scenery and weather are in season for that month of the year.
The books help children to associate foods with the time of year that they are tastiest, most nutritious, best for the environment AND cheapest! And reading these charming stories over and over builds their familiarity with those foods away from the table so they are more likely to accept them when they turn up on their plate.
For families who like to grow and cook these books can enhance those activities and help children to feel connected to those fun food activities by reading their stories.
Each book contains a lovely story, some facts about the star fruit or veg (written by children) and a recipe for little hands to cook.
This collection contains all twelve months, so your child can read a story, find out about its main character, and cook a recipe with you every month for a whole year.
This makes them a great stocking filler or birthday present because you buy the present once but it will be brought out again and again throughout the year, making your present the one that lasts.
I wrote these stories and make lots of other resources to go with them for little cooks and gardeners, and to help parents who want dinner times to be a bit more relaxed. I will always do my best to add personal messages or speed up deliveries if possible for last minute present dashes, and am happy to answer any questions.
Happy eating! 🍓🥬🍅🍐🍊🥒🥕
