Stargold the Food Fairy

Stargold the Food Fairy is the perfect book for those parents who constantly feel the need to say to their children, “No, we are not eating candies for dinner tonight.” The author is a Registered Dietitian who came up with the story of Stargold and Lucie the day she realised that “Because I said so!” was not such a great answer when her children asked her, “But why not?”

The story uses a metaphor comparing the building of a house to the building of a person’s body in order to help young readers visualize the relationship between the foods we eat and how our bodies grow and develop. Each different food group and the nutrients held within represent a different building material for the metaphorical house, and only when the proper types of foods are eaten does the house, and thus the human body, grow healthy and strong.

Part of the proceeds of the sale of this book will go to the Malala’s Fund, which helps promote the access of education to children worldwide.
