"The Very Hungry Caterpillar" Healthy Eating Habits Giveaway!!
It's hard to believe that it's been forty years since Eric Carle first released The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I remember reading the book as a child, and have LOVED reading it with my own son. Now, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation and the American Academy of Pediatrics are joining together with The Very Hungry Caterpillar and We Give Books to help promote healthy eating habits in an effort to combat childhood obesity.
Starting this Spring, over 17,500 pediatrician's offices will be provided with special editions of the book that feature growth charts and healthy eating tips. The Alliance's mission is to help educate and promote healthy eating habits among growing children.
Teaching our children to make good food choices is an important part of our role as parents! Like the caterpillar we can learn that eating too much can lead to a pretty bad tummy ache, while eating the right sort of food can help us grow healthy and strong. This is such a fun book and a must-have for your child's library!
THREE lucky readers will have a chance to win their own copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
