As parents we all know the benefits of a healthy lifestyle for ourselves and our children, however when you walk round a supermarket which appeals to your senses more, the vegetables or the sweets and cakes? Here at Coombe Mill we love to encourage a healthy balanced diet for children and healthy active holidays to match. From learning about herbs and cooking with nature in our craft sessions to wild adventure zones out on the farm, we aim to make a healthy lifestyle fun and enjoyable for children. It turns out Supertato Run Veggies Run is striving to do just the same.
Supertato: Run Veggies Run!
When I heard about the lovable Supertato character and the delightful books fostering a sense of healthy living and making vegetables cool I was immediately drawn to discover more. ‘Run veggies Run’ is the third book in the successful Supertato series, one of the biggest selling picture book characters in 2016, written and illustrated by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet.
It’s Sports Day in the supermarket and all the veggies are in training. Everyone has been practicing hard and is ready and raring to go. However, a new competitor joins the event, accompanied by The Evil Pea, and is determined to win all the prizes. Things don’t seem quite right and Supertato is on the case, but will he be able to foil his nemesis’ plan in time?
What we thought
Run veggies run, like all the Supertato books, is fun, engaging and beautifully illustrated, with a superhero and a villain that is all tongue in cheek. We loved the supermarket chaos that the veggies created. this is a book to inspire adventure and fun and of course a love of veggies! The story and the illustrations are popular with the children on holiday here and have formed the beginning of several of our activity hour sessions.
