I'm writing up a feature about childhood obesity and thought I'd add a selection of good children's books to read that cover topics like good nutrition/healthy eating, getting exercise, and healthy body image.

Anyone got any books that fit that bill? It'll go online.

Ooh ooh, I have one, Siski!

Nutrition Across a Lifetime (2008). A  senior primary school text in the “Health and Understanding” series.  Blake Education, NSW, Australia. ISBN 978-1-74164-363-3

But I think it's only available in Australia, so no probs if it can't be included.
Good luck with the article. J.

Darn, it's not available on Amazon.co.uk, otherwise I would definitely have put it in!

Can't believe there aren't any other books... has no one written a book (fictional or non-fiction) about eating/food/exercise??? Including eating/food/exercise as a theme? Hmmm. Gap in the market?!?

I don't know if this is quite what you're looking for, but I thought I'd throw the info out there anyway.

An American doctor, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, who endorses a plant-based diet for optimal health, has contributed to the writing of a picture book series for children called Mitch Spinach. I have no idea of these books are good or not, but I personally appreciate the attempt he's making to get kids to eat their vegetables.

Here's the authors' website in case you are interested:
