Hungry Caterpillar Book Giveaway!

If your kids are like mine, they LOVE the classic children's book by Eric Carle: The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  Full of amazing, full-color illustrations, a cute main character, and a story line that parents and kids enjoy, there is a reason this book will continue to warm the hearts of families for years to come.

Did you know that the book is also a centerpiece for a new healthy eating initiative?
The Alliance for a Healthier Generation and the American Academy of Pediatrics have joined with the best-selling children’s book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, and with We Give Books to help families learn about healthy eating habits at home. The Eating Healthy. Growing Strong campaign is an important part of the Alliance’s mission to combat childhood obesity.

This spring, more than 17,500 pediatrician offices across the United States will receive free copies of specially created The Very Hungry Caterpillar books, together with growth charts and parent handouts that encourage doctors and parents to have meaningful conversations about the importance of healthy eating. 

You can read more about the initiative and download the growth chart and parent handout on the Healthy Children and Alliance for a Healthier Generation campaign websites.
