Why are we creating this book?


As an illustrator and publisher of children books, my biggest passion is to tell stories that make an impact. My first book was about uniting children and adults who live apart, and the theme of this current project is equally important: getting kids familiar with fruits and vegetables, and all the powers they hold within. 

This topic was inspired by the changes in my own lifestyle. Since I introduced much more fruits and veggies to my diet, I stopped having my before-so-regular daytime sleepiness and digestion problems. Instead of sugar rushes, I started getting veggies-rushes! As a passionate cook as well, I discovered the richness of plant-foods and how creative and delicious they can be. My dietary choices are now contributing not only to my well-being but also to the environment and animals.

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 permanent impact on children’s attitude towards fruits and veggies.


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.
