This time author Milinda Rodziewicz will take kids on an interactive journey though health and nutrition with Catch Those Cold Bugs — storytelling about food which engages imagination, appeals to kids’ sense of fun, curiosity and natural willingness to learn.
Milinda Rodziewicz wrote “Catch Those Cold Bugs” out of her desire to find a way to encourage her delightful (and food fussy) Son – Kai, to eat his vegetables while keeping their relationship intact. She was curious about finding a way to guide his behaviour without defaulting to the familiar threats and bribes strategy. So she came up with a method of storytelling about food which engaged Kai’s imagination, appealed to his sense of fun, curiosity and natural willingness to learn, which greatly assisted harmony at the dinner table and inspired creative and engaging conversations around nutrition as it relates to his body function and general wellbeing. .. And so began, what she hopes is his journey into a healthy relationship with food for life!
