This is why as a Children’s Fitness Expert I wanted to create a series of books inspire our children to enjoy healthy foods and play fun active games. But also to educate the parent.
“a child absorbs so much from a young age and this is the time to inspire healthy habits”
Childhood Obesity is now one of the most crucial public health challenges for the 21st century. In 2010 the number of children under the age of 5 was estimated at 42 million worldwide!!! Yet this can be prevented by simply going back to basics, which is eating a healthy diet. By that I mean plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and also get kids moving. Just like I did as a child. It is likely that an overweight child will become an obese adult, increasing the risk of disease, and will not enjoy life to the full. Kids should have heaps of energy, yet processed foods and computer games will drain them of this. This is why I produced a series of fun books where each character within the story always eats healthy foods, and where they always play a game which gives them a fun workout to inspire the young reader.
Let’s just go back to basics and keep childhood magical and healthy.

This fun treasure hunt leads all the six fairies to the hidden treasure which is 6 golden magical seeds. Each fairy can choose a golden seed to turn in to any fruit tree she wishes for, but as with every story there is a twist! This book helps inspire children to grow and eat their own fruit and vegetables just like the fairies, and as always with the Luniper Land books this has instructions on how to play “The Fairies’ Treasure Hunt Game” and how to make the “Super Healthy Luscious Luniper Smoothie”.
“Who Stole the Snowman’s Nose”
On a beautiful winter’s morning Arabella the fairy excitedly draws back her curtains to look out of the window at the wonderful snowman that she’s built, and is shocked to find that someone has stolen the snowman’s nose! Who could have taken it? Was it the Wizard Apprentices from the nearby Luniper Academy? Or could it be one of the other fairies, or perhaps the naughty cats Raisin and Sultana? Arabella is determined to find out who’s behind this theft. This magical Christmas time story is a fun adventure and as with all the stories from Luniper Land, it has a sprinkling of healthy eating and fun activities to inspire the young readers into eating well and being active. The game within the book is ” The Snowball Challenge”

Children reading the book can be inspired to join in the game and the picnic and with the fun fruit and vegetable snacks such as the “Broccoli Snow Trees” or “the Carrot and Avocado Peacock”.
