While sharing her journey about the book, Renee said that she “collected a lot of knowledge about health from her profession and she worked with this every day in her practice. It started when her kids were small, from her passion for healthy living, she was always busy with healthy eating and cooking with her kids. But at one point, she was struggling, probably not as the only parent, with certain healthy foods for her kids to eat.”
She remembers as friends or family came over and gave the kids their food, they were more willing to try and at that point, her mind started being creative and she started to work on her first children’s book about healthy food. But she wanted it to be different, it had to be appealing for little children to read it and that they could connect with the characters in the book. This way if they didn’t want to eat or try to eat the healthy food, she wanted them to eat, she could always refer to Veggy, Fruity, or one of their friends, about how they always tried to eat things first before saying no to it.
This helped her in her journey with raising her children with healthy food and without struggling too much with their eating patterns. She always believed, “the younger they are and taste all kinds of foods the easier it will be for them in the future to eat healthy food”.
