4 Cute Books to Teach Preschoolers About Healthy Foods

Get the kids to know healthy food earlier.

Preschool kids are taking their first tentative steps into the school system and, more importantly, the real world. Preschool is the perfect little place where they can learn how to relate with their peers and star honing their social skills, it’s great almost all around.

One part that we could definitively improve has to do with their food. Schools rarely provided food you could even remotely call “healthy”, quite the complete opposite actually. So, it is on our hands to provide them with that and also teach then early which foods are healthy and how to recognize them.

How do that? Simply provide them with the cutest and most informative healthy food books for preschoolers available. Get them reading and learning about health? Talk about two birds, one stone. Educate the kids in something that will really help them in the future with these books.

I have a toddler, so I know firsthand how little ones can be picky eaters. That’s why I absolutely love the book, I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato (Charlie and Lola). Lola is an incredibly fussy eater and she especially does not like tomatoes. But, her brother Charlie uses his imagination to inspire Lola to eat more healthy foods! For example, he tells her that carrots are actually orange twiglets from Jupiter! Charlie also inspires Lola to eat mashed potatoes after telling her they’re cloud fluff from the highest peak of Mount Fuji. It’s a fun book that will get preschoolers thinking about healthy foods in a new and imaginative way.

In the book, the little pea has to eat sweets in order to get vegetables for dessert. It’s a great opening for parents to talk to children about healthy eating, food preferences, what dessert really means and whether it should have to be consumed after another food is eaten. The pictures and language are fun and easy for a preschooler to understand. I often recommend this book to parents of picky eaters.
