Many children’s books inspire healthy food choices and fitness, even the unexpected ones. Be creative and have fun!! Last week Andi and I read The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle. After reading the book we went for a nature walk to look for spider webs. It was great fun, and as soon as we got home Andi wanted to read the book again!
