Recently, I was introduced to a new book called "The Sandwich Witch". It's a children's book (recommended for ages 4-8, but I think any kids would enjoy it), written in a fun way to help teach children the importance of a eating a well-balanced diet so they can be healthy and strong. A few of my talented designer friends from my pre-working days illustrated the book, so I knew I had to have it for myself. The author, Lee McNeil, signed a copy just for Zoey. She was so excited to get "happy mail" just for herself and thought it was so cool to have her name written inside the cover!
To help her learn a little more about healthy eating, I decided I would let her help make lunch. Of course, the Sandwich Witch came up in conversation, so we made a turkey and cheese sandwich and cut it out with a witch shaped cookie cutter. Zoey was a little worried that the Sandwich Witch was going to steal it. We talked about what kind of healthy snacks could go with the sandwich, and she picked strawberries. It's so fun to see how much she has learned, and hopefully I can continue to teach her to make healthy habits as she grows.
