Last night John brought Sylvia up to the hospital to read with Mummy. I’ve been on the Rookwood Ward now for a whole week and we have been missing bedtime stories. Sylvia came up in her Pyjamas and brought with her a new set of books the NutriKids collection which were sent to review.
The NutriKids Books are created by Sam Bourne a Nutritional Therapist and each story is a character named after a healthy veg or fruit, for example Connie Carrot, Penelope Pea and Billy Blueberry. The books contain more than just a story, they share interesting facts about the fruit or vegetables as well as recipe ideas and a how to grow each of the vegetables.
Sylvia enjoyed reading the books with me. She is at an age where her reading has recently taken off and the wording is simple and easy to read and not too much on a page.
I loved the Illustrations and actually am looking forward to giving some of the recipe and serving suggestions and try. We are a huge fan of Blueberries. We like to add berries to our cereal and Sylvia enjoys banana and blueberry smoothies. We also love blueberry muffins and it was interesting to read about the history of blueberries as well as reading the story.
I’m not too sure we are a fan of peas. I think Sylvia is a lot like Penelope pea who at first would rather not eat them. We learnt that peas have protein and I think it would be great fun to try and grow our own pea pods.
Sylvia and I enjoyed reading the NutriKids books. They are great for encouraging children to make healthy food choices. I think they are a fantastic little set and being a fan of factual books, these really are something I’d love to keep and use in the future and of course read again with my daughter.
