Do you want your child and students to choose healthy food over junk food?

With valuable lessons like:

  • That eating right is essential for movement—including play
  • Visualise how human biology works

  • The dangers of short-lived sugar energy
  • The benefits of fruits and vegetables in our diet
  • The importance of  a good diet to our bones
  • That our “Friends on the Inside”, like our bones and organs, need good food to function well
  • And so many more

‘I love how this story educates children about what they put into their bodies and how it benefits them. Beautifully illustrated too. Well done to Kemi. So, refreshing when surrounded by so much junk food and easy lazy oven meals’
Ali Dorgan

“As a home-school mum of two and a grandmother of two boys. I know the challenges of getting your children to eat right. However, after reading “MY FRIENDS ON THE INSIDE, I would highly recommend it as a fun, informative way to teach children about healthy eating habits”.

“This beautifully illustrated and colourful book would appeal to young children. It would also be of value to parents and educators who want to teach children the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle”.
Emer Ahern

Early Years Educator
“First of all, the first impression I got was the beautiful colourful, eye-catching cover, and the illustrations represent the organs. The book is an easy read and would keep a child interested. It is a great story as I work with young children and know how hard it can be to eat healthy foods. I believe this story would help many children understand the important benefits of eating healthy and the function of our organs. I can’t wait to read this book to my class”.
