“Eat the Rainbow” is an interactive book that talks to children ages 4-8 about keeping healthy so they can grow up to live long, productive lives. The story is told from the point of view of the Self chec PreventiconPals who are sick and tired of hearing about the bad things that can happen — and that might possibly follow them into adulthood — if they don’t eat better, exercise often, apply sunscreen (as easy as brushing your teeth!), or learn how to relax. The PreventiconPals have made a pledge to be healthy role models for kids everywhere and to help them become empowered champions of their own self-care, well-being and just doing what’s right.
The idea for “Eat the Rainbow” came from Joan Peckolick, after she learned that the children of this generation have a shorter lifespan than their parents and that we have a moral obligation to help them develop positive habits now, so they won’t need to unlearn bad habits later.
Rich, whimsical color illustrations and important real-life tips guide girls and boys through the story by helping them realize the potential they have to live a long and healthy life, and also to teach the adults in their life a thing or two about keeping healthy!
