Australian Children's Book Author Reveals Truth Behind Junk Food & Childhood Obesity

Thu, 9 Feb 2012 01:44:58 EST

QUEENSLAND, Australia February, 2012 – Nutrition, fitness and health professionals from opposing sides of the obesity debate might argue over the technicalities of Australia's overwhelming childhood obesity problem, but most agree that education is the key to change. Now children can learn about healthy eating from a brand new super hero, Superfood Spike as he battles to fight obesity and change the ways of Junkfood Jimmy in a fun and easy to read book for children.

Two-time author of healthy eating and child obesity books, Sharon Cooper is a stroke survivor and passionate healthy living advocate. In her latest book, 'Superfood Spike and the Fart of Junkfood Jimmy', Sharon dissects the link between junk food and childhood obesity using humour to enthral young readers. The groundbreaking book allows parents to tackle the subject of unhealthy weight and junk food advertising head-on while  providing lots of laughs for kids. 'Superfood Spike and the Fart of Junkfood Jimmy' provides parents with the perfect tool to raise awareness about junk food and superfoods in a fun and engaging way.

Expert nutritionist Dr. Rosemary Stanton OAM only has praise for the novel way to reach young children. 'The Superfood Spike children's book is a great story that I'm sure children will love. In today's world where children are so often seen as fair game by sophisticated marketers of junk food, it's refreshing to find a book that uses humour to teach children (and adults) about the impact of advertising and poor food choices,' reveals Dr. Rosemary.

'Superfood Spike and the Fart of Jimmy Junkfood' incorporates healthy eating messages in a medium that children thoroughly enjoy. The book follows Superfood Spike's story as he tries to convince his friend Junkfood Jimmy that junk food is bad for his health. Sharon cleverly brings kids' health and child obesity issues to the forefront as Superfood Spike explains the difference between good and bad types of food and how both impact a child's growth in a way that children can relate to.

Helping parents teach their children the importance of healthy eating in a fun and engaging way is at the core of Sharon's passion – and is the cornerstone of 'Superfood Spike and the Fart of Jimmy Junkfood.' Making children laugh in a sometimes challenging world is 'the icing on the cake' for Sharon.
