Eating Healthy by Eating What We Grow 

Our Super Garden by Anne Nagro

Our Super Garden by Anne Nagro, author of the critically acclaimed Our Generous Garden and the bilingual English-Spanish Nuestra Huerta Generosa, explores eating healthy by eating what we grow. With kid-friendly language and eye-catching art, it highlights the “special powers” fruits and vegetables give our bodies, like the “force field” created by vitamin C that helps keep us from getting sick, antioxidants that “karate chop” diseases, and fiber, which helps us poop.

Children learn it’s OK to try new foods and why fruits and vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet.  

For children age three to 10, the book features 20 kid-tested garden recipes from youth garden programs across the country; a kid-friendly chart of nutrients found in fruits and vegetables to help us make good food choices, easy food preparation guidelines, and more! 

Research shows children who plant and harvest their own fruits and vegetables are more likely to eat them.

A foreword by Florida Surgeon General Dr. Ana M. Viamonte Ros explores how Our Super Garden and gardening with children are part of the solution to the complex crises of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and food security facing our nation’s children.  View sample pages!

Available as a printed, softcover book ($11.95) and Kindle e-book ($3.99).
