Win-It-Wednesday: “The Rootlets: Super Rootabilities” Children’s Book

We all know that veggies are good for you, an important part of a well-rounded gluten-free diet, and they taste great too. But what is often hard is getting kids to believe that too.

If you have or know any children that have a hard time embracing veggies in their mealtime, the new children’s book “The Rootlets: Super Rootabilities” is for you and your little ones. Launching just in time for National Nutrition Month (March), this book is written by Vicki Marquez, a certified health coach, wellness expert, and plant based chef. Her mission is to get kids to re-think veggies as being a cool, and a tasty addition to meal time – and to break the stigma that healthy living is boring.

And she has accomplished this mission with this book.

The Rootlets are a cast of fun-loving and veggie-loving characters that are the super-heroes of healthy eating. The cast’s entertaining names (Brocc, Kaley, Carrotina and Cornelius), the bright and colorful illustrations and the thrilling plot of the story make this book a read-again favorite. This 40 page soft back book is perfect for kids aged 4 to 9.

And lucky for us, Vicki Marquez and her new book “The Rootlets: Super Rootabilities” is sponsoring this Win-It-Wednesday on!

    This sounds like an excellent book for my grandchildren. I am pleased that children today seem more aware of healthy eating than we were. We tended to eat whatever our parents prepared without really understanding the combinations of food or the origins of food. Books like this will go a long way to further educate children on good eating habits and therefore, better healthy choices and hopefully better health.

    My favourite vegetable would have to be yams…I just love them as they are with nothing added.

    I would share this would with my preschool classes. We teach our preschoolers about food allergies and to be caring about their friends who have to eat differently than they do. We have several children with nut allergies, corn, banana and gluten.

    Sounds like a great book. My nephew, just turned 5, and though his parents try introducing him to new veggies, he is not always anxious to try them. This book sounds like would be great for him.

  4. Anita Says:

    Our 8year old daughter was just diagnosed with celiac disease. I would give this book to her to help encourage her to try new things as she learns about her disease.

    My youngest son loves broccoli but just won’t eat asparagus at all. He loves to read and my granddaughter would love this book too. We grow our veggies in our garden ever year and enjoy eating what comes from our garden. Can’t buy veggies that fresh at stores.
