“Grow Me Well negotiates the simple relationships between eating well and attaining superb health in a fun and easily readable format. As a nutrition educator, it is reassuring to see a sound foundation in nutrition science underpinning this story. New Zealand-authored nutrition books of this genre are rare, I would go so far as to say this is the best book to support New Zealand nutrition education that I have seen. “Wendy Slatter DHSC, M ED (HONS)

Who is Grow Me Well written for?

Designed to appeal to teenagers, Grow Me Well actually makes the whole idea of nutrition and body science interesting to all age groups. The engaging nature of the cartoon-like pictures means Grow Me Well can be used as a teaching tool for pre-school students right through to secondary pupils. South Island artist Richard Gunther did an amazing job brining our ideas to life on every page.

Educators Resource Available

We even wrote The Feed Me Right Teacher’s Resource to support educators of all nutritional knowledge levels to effectively use Grow Me Well.

The Teacher’s Resource is also available for purchase in our online store. It has lesson plans, worksheets, posters and activities. Teacher’s can use these tools with confidence to teach students the difference between what your body needs to be healthy and what society says you should eat. Nutritional know-how and body science made easy – to teach and to learn!

Supporting Families and Planet Earth

Grow Me Well was also written with families in mind. It is a great reference book to support parents, grandparents and caregivers in steering children away from the over abundance of processed snacks and plastic waste. And to focus on moving families towards more wholesome nutritious foods provided by nature complete with compostable packaging like banana skins! Grow Me Well also provides a great opportunity to teach children that not only does making local, seasonal healthy food choices support their growing bodies it also supports a heathier planet due to less packaging waste and food miles.
