Banish mealtime blues through making food fun

March 2021 Book of the Month

Calling all parents facing food-related meltdowns! After introducing your food-fussy progeny to this instructive interactive picture book, you’ll never need to make a meal of meal-time again. Recommended by paediatric dieticians, it introduces children to a rainbow of delicious food through a fun family-oriented story. What’s more, the story can be lived off-the-page during real-life trips to the supermarket, helping to convince hard-to-please kids to try new foods and, as a result, it’s also certain to please parents frazzled by food-related friction.


The story begins with Mummy despairing of the food in the cupboard. “She couldn’t find anything she wanted to make for dinner… I’m so bored of beige!” she grumbles. So, after deciding that “what we need is some colour!” Mummy heads to the supermarket, where she challenges her two toddlers to pick three kinds of food, the only proviso being that they must be red. Then follows a delightfully illustrated page of ravishing red foods that invites readers to decide what they’d choose. Each day they return to the shop, where the kids are issued with a fresh challenge - pick three yellow foods, three green, three orange, three purple. By the time Saturday comes around and the kids find Mummy eating a boring beige croissant, they make her a special colourful breakfast.

Which Food Will You Choose? Synopsis

Mummy's in a bad mood. She's fed up of food like chicken nuggets, pasta, chips, cereal and crisps. Then she has an idea! She's going to take her children to the supermarket to play a game.

On Monday she tells them to choose three RED foods, on Tuesday three YELLOW foods, on Wednesday three GREEN foods...

Look at all the foods there are to choose from! Which three foods would YOU choose? And how would YOU eat them?

This cleverly concocted picture book features deliciously illustrated pages of red, yellow, green, orange and purple foods for your child to choose from. Enjoy the story together and then take your child to the supermarket to play the game in real life! Recommended by paediatric dietitians to help with fussy eating, it's a fun and effective way to coax your child out of their comfort zone and encourage them to go for something new and different. 

From Claire Potter, the best-selling author of Getting the Little Blighters to Eat, and with gorgeous illustrations from Ailie Busby.
