Super Sprowtz Review and Giveaway

Isabella is a really picky eater, especially when it comes to vegetables, in particular green vegetables.  So I've taken to being a veggie hider.  I puree up some veggies and hide them in her food using recipes from Deceptively Delicious.  But, I'm gonna be honest, I hate pureeing those damn veggies.  It's so friggen annoying and it's such a mess to clean up.  I have episodes of Jersey Shore to watch people, so when I was contacted by Super Sprowtz to review their children's books that are supposed to get kids excited about eating vegetables I jumped on it.

Super Sprowtz products, which includes books, apps, and dvds, are meant to entertain and educate children about healthy eating habits through the use of some pretty amazing super powered vegetable heroes like Colby Carrot who has great vision, Erica Eggplant who is super smart, and Brian Broccoli who is very strong.  Their are also evil villains like Processa the Processed Queen, Grease, and Pompous Pollution...grrrrr.  Super Sprowtz proudly proclaims that their books, apps, dvd's, and curriculum (for both school and home) will help children to become better eaters of vegetables without using dips and sauces or, like me, having to hide them.




The Super Sprowtz website is chock full of information about nutrition, community, fun and games, and best of all...recipes.  


Isabella loves the books.  She loves naming the veggies and she loves the vibrant colors.  I use mostly the board book with her, but the other book I received was The Super Sprowtz Origins which would probably be better for pre-schoolers and up, I brought into work and commissioned a second grade teacher to try it out with her class and see what they think about it.  Isabella and I spent about a week reading the books and looking at the pictures and watching the videos on-line, which are hysterical (click on the video at the top if you don't believe me).  I plan on spending the next week trying new veggies with her and featuring some recipes from Super Sprowtz here on the blog to see how it works.

Anything to help kids eat their veggies! We had a garden last year and it was amazing what they were willing to eat if they had plucked it from the vine!

Thanks for visiting Snapshots!
