What Parents Are Saying



Wish I had this when I was a kid

This book is very healing for me. Along with the free downloads that the author provides, this book creates the framework for exploring food and the experience of eating that fosters curiosity and adventure. I wish I had access to this book as a child as it helps to foster food freedom and a healthy relationship with food.



We own and love every book Dani has written

And this one is no exception! It’s full of research-backed, body-neutral and growth-mindset messages and adorable artwork! I love that it honors the kids being in charge of listening to their bodies to learn about what they need and like in food.

My kids asked lots of questions about each page and enjoy thinking of themselves as adventurous “food explorers.”

A powerful tool for kids!

I’ve read this book with my kids a few times, the illustrations are beautiful and it is well written… my boys are quite young (4,3 +1) but already has been a powerful tool with my 4 and 3yo. Specifically around their communication of preferences and many pages on the book have given us moments to reflect/discuss topics such as respect, previous food experiences and being brave to try new things!
