The Superheroes on Your Plate

RRP: $22.95

Every food at the dinner table competes for the title of superhero on your plate.
Which food will claim the title?

From avocado to kiwi and around to egg and look out for brown rice! Each food is on a mission to declare themselves the winner. It may be hard to digest at times, but some have an incredibly good reason for being a true champion.

You will have to help them decide…

Combine story time with educating children about nutrition and inspiring them to eat a wider variety of wholefoods. This book aims to be a conversation starter as to what other foods children would bring to the plate as superheroes, either because they enjoy them or for health-promoting benefits. Who will be the plate superhero?

About the Illustrator: Emma Hay

Emma is a Brisbane based illustrator, who grew up in the heart of rural NSW on her family's century old farm.  Currently Emma is now following her passion for Children’s Book Illustration, full time, whilst continuing to run her small business on the side. Emma continues to strive to create whimsical, colourful and fun works for kids, and cares deeply about creating worlds, where children can explore interesting, challenging and entertaining topics that broadens their world and fosters their curiosity.

"Instead of saying “don’t eat that” or “this food is better than that food” this lovely little book shows how a little bit of every food can contribute to a nutritious plate. It shows how every different element adds its own benefit to the variety of kai (food) we eat in a fun and light-hearted way, inviting tamariki (children) to be naturally curious about the food they eat." Garden to Table Trust, NZ

“A fun and thought-out way to present food values to children and engage in topical talks to improving young health… Well done.” Marcus, Indie Book reviewer
