Kids Eat Healthy With Help From the Munch Crunch Bunch!
Date:8/12/2008

CINCINNATI, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Can't convince your kids to eat their veggies? Call on the Munch Crunch Bunch! A recent research study showed how effective these fun food friends are at empowering children, ages 5 to 8, to make healthy food choices.

After filling out a questionnaire tracking their intake of food, 1st and 2nd grade students participated in a nutrition education activity using the Treasure Hunt with the Munch Crunch Bunch story/activity book. Each child also took a book home to share with their family and to use on subsequent trips to the grocery, utilizing the foodles (food riddle cards) in tracking down fresh fruit and veggies. Three weeks later, another food questionnaire was administered. Not only did intake of fresh fruits and vegetables rise 24% and 14% respectively but intake of soda pop, fast food, and sweet snacks dropped significantly. Complete results are available at http://www.MunchCrunchBunch.com (Study results were independently reviewed by Ohio's Evaluation and Assessment Center for Mathematics & Science Education.)

A sampling of parents comments include...

"My son was better behaved when we grocery shopped; he had a great time trying to solve the food riddles for veggies and track them down in the produce department... ."

"My child now asks for a 'healthy' snack after school and wants to know if the food we serve at dinner is 'healthy.'"

Nutrition education is successful when done with creative and interactive material that involves the parents as well as the child. Melinda Hemmelgarn, R.D., M.S., a registered dietician, award winning writer, and co-author states, "As a mother, I understand the power of getting kids involved in making good food, fun. The Munch Crunch Bunch can help change picky eaters into curious, hearty, healthy eaters."

Treasure Hunt with the Munch Crunch Bunch story/activity book is available in English and Spanish, online at Amazon.com and other sites listed at http://www.MunchCrunchBunch.com in addition to selected book and food stores.
