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

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

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!
