Sammy Spinach by Sam Bourne, Sam Bourne

NutriKids Books were created to help parents, teachers and guardians to not only get children to eat and enjoy vegetables and fruit, but to help them 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 nutritionrequired to stay healthy for life and children born today are predicted to live shorter lives than their parents due to diet. Adding 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. NutrikKids is here to help plant the seeds of knowledge and desire for better health.The books use simple language with a little child psychology, and are directed at young children at a time when they are learning about many different things in life, food being one of the most important.The NutriKids characters have experiences that young children can relate to like being in the park, school sports days, swimming and bedtime. The books also contain helpful nutritional information that explains clearly why the foods are healthy and what they do in the body, recipes, a short but interesting geographical history and a grow your own page. The plan is to create more books in the range with as many healthy foods that are important.Parents can download certificates to reward children for eating healthy foods as an achievement rather than offering sweet treats, and activity sheets that further involve children in the discovery of healthy foods. There are 6 books in the first series and the children can meet more characters on the NutriKids website:

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
