To Be A Healthy Eater, I Have A Plan with Little Blueprint

As a mom, I want my children to learn healthy eating habits early so that as they grow, not only will they be healthy and strong, but they will make good choices all on their own. I have luckily never had much of a fight when it comes to my children eating their fruits and veggies, however within the last year, my youngest daughter, Claire has become a rather picky eater. We sat down together and read To Be A Healthy Eater, I Have a Plan by Katherine Eskovitz. This is just one book in the Little Blueprint book collection.

Little Blueprint Books Help Your Child Make a Plan

We love our Little Blueprint book on healthy eating. Each page is filled with adorable illustrations and information to tell your child how they can be a healthy eater and why junk food is bad for us. My favorite page is about sugar, I love that it explains that eating sugar just makes us crave more sugar. Sugar doesn’t fill our stomach or give us any nutrients, if you are craving something sweet, grab an apple or handful of fruit.

This book is a great resource for speaking to children about healthy eating and how each food has different nutrients to help your body perform at its best! At the end of each Little Blueprint book is a page where your child can make their own plan on how they will do their best to deal with a situation or make a healthy eating plan. Claire doesn’t know how to write yet (she is only 4), so we decided that she could draw and color pictures of food that is healthy for her and exercise that she likes to do to keep her body fit and strong.

Little Blueprint books are about more than just healthy eating. From heavier issues like making a plan to deal with a parent’s divorce, to mourning a death or other subjects like making a bedtime plan (for those of you with kids who don’t like sleeping), being safe at home and on the go, Little Blueprint covers so many important issues that parents may not always know how to discuss with their children.

Little Blueprint not only has ready made books, but they also create customized books for special situations. Ready made books cost $24.95 and personalized books cost $34.95 and can be ordered from www.littleblueprint.com.
