Avoiding Child Obesity: Children Eat Vegetables with Author of New Picture Book, A Hungry Lion in My Tummy
Date:5/24/2010

A Hungry Lion in my Tummy, new picture book, is getting young children to try vegetables.

(PRWEB) May 22, 2010 -- New Picture Book, A Hungry Lion in My Tummy, is getting children to eat vegetables! New Author is reaching children at a time when America's leading concern for children is obesity and diabetes.

The 'Never-boy' came back for more broccoli--how exciting is that? I also give them examples on how to try the vegetables different ways. If they don't like spinach cooked, for example, eat the raw spinach leaf like lettuce and dip it into a tiny bit of salad dressing. I like to mention spinach because it is obviously thought of, by most children, as vegetable slime--like it was when I was a child."

Vollmer was able to teach her daughter, as a preschooler, a lifestyle of healthy eating by not ordering her meals from the children's menu that consists of fried foods and French fries. "It can be done. Feed your children what you eat and watch them expand their pallets. Don't fix them a seperate meal. If Mac
