Book Review: The Healthy Me Team: A Battle of Vitamin and Mineral Against Artificial Colors and White Sugar by Netta Gerad


One of my biggest goals with sticking to my exercise while pregnant is being an example to my 3 year old. Everyday she tells me "exercise Mommy." haha

She is my little cheerleader during my exercises as well. If I'm not jumping with the instructors on the screen she's right there yelling at me "Jump, Mommy, jump!"

haha What a sweet heart, right? I'm so proud of her. She even joins in during the warm-ups and does her exercise too.

But what is missing in my healthy lifestyle teaching for her is her reading. I've been looking for a good book to read to her that teaches lessons of eating healthy. 

So, when I presented the opportunity to read and review The Healthy Me Team by Netta Gerad I was super excited!!

My thoughts:

This book is cute. I love the colorful illustrations and so did Eva. They helped keep her engaged in the story. Being only 3 this was a little long for her. She doesn't sit still for long stories yet. ...We're getting there.

Aside from being a little long, the story line was good but still a little complicated for younger children. The description claims it is for children 2-8 years old. I would say its more of the upper ages. However, my 3 year old did like it. 

As with a lot of Golden Books and kid's movies made into book, I think it is one that children can grow into. We have many long books that require me to describe the story based on the pictures and in time add in more of the actual literature. I think this will be one of them.

That being said, I'm still really glad I have it. It creates the opportunity to start teaching her about good food versus others that should be eaten in moderation or not at all. 

Happy Reading!

  1. Awesome idea for a book! This will make it easier for any parent to try that tough discussion with a little one about how bad added sugar is!

  2. What a great book! It's never too early to teach good nutrition. Thanks for sharing!
