CORAL SPRINGS (CBS4) – As parent getting your children to eat their fruits and vegetables is probably a difficult task, but there is a new superhero in town that could make your life a whole lot easier.
His name is Mitch Spinach and he is the main character in the book “The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach”.
Coral Springs parents Hillary and Jeff Hillenbrand felt something needed to be done to get their children to eat healthier so they decided to write a book in collaboration with Dr. Joel Fuhrman, a family physician, about a kid who gets super powers after eating super foods.
“We wanted to make eating these foods cool, not have kids say ‘Broccoli, oh no’ but rather ‘Oh Wow’,” said Hillary Hillenbrand.
“The kids want to be like him,” said Jeff Hillenbrand “That is our goal to have the children who read the book want to eat their fruits and vegetable too so they could feel the same way.”
The book is geared towards children between 3-10 years old.
