Why are we creating this book?
As an illustrator and children’s book publisher, I’ve been looking for the right time to create a children’s book about some of my biggest passions: healthy food, fruits and veggies, and cooking! Back in Finland, my vegetable “education” was mainly limited to potatoes, cabbage and cucumber.
I could blame the chilly latitudes or the price tag of imported veggies, but I believe the truth was far more egoistic: the fruits and vegetables were simply BORING. It was only at my later age (and in more central-European latitudes), when I discovered the overwhelming abundance of delicious plant-foods and how creative you can be with them. This has completely changed the way how I cook, eat and view the well-being of myself and my environment.
I want to share my love for the ‘greens’ in the best way I know: by creating an engaging story and discovery book that will, hopefully, have a permanent impact on children’s attitudes towards fruit and vegetables. I want to make the greens FUN.
As a mother and nutritionist it is of utmost importance to feed my family healthy and nutritious meals. Unfortunately we hear the term “picky eater” way too often these days, and a “picky eater” has become the norm, rather than the exception. We all want our children to grow up healthy and happy. Adding a fun, explorative and educative approach towards the food our little ones consume can spark their curiosity. This in turn would make them more likely to try out new flavors and textures.
My goal with this book is to reduce the anxiety of meal refusal and spark the children’s inborn curiosity. Food can be a fun part of storytelling and exploratory activities, and this way by making it more familiar in a safe place, it will be easier to reconnect with it at the dinner table.
Creating a unique and engaging story that involves fruits and vegetables, and teaches children about their benefits in an entertaining way, is my way of contributing towards raising healthier and happy children.
