Eating Healthy.  Growing Strong.

The Alliance for a Healthier Generation and the American Academy of Pediatrics have joined with the best-selling children’s book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle to help families learn about healthy eating habits.  More than 17,500 pediatrician offices will receive free copies of a special edition of The Very Hungry Caterpillar books, growth charts and parent handouts to encourage doctors and parents to have meaningful conversations about the importance of healthy eating.

When The Very Hungry Caterpillar burst onto the scene in 1969, children instantly took to it.  Was it the color?  The texture?  The littlest creature who turned into a beautiful butterfly?  The fascinating die-cut holes in the pieces of food?  Whatever it was, it was pure magic for children. 

And you can see that it still is!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar eats many foods on his journey to becoming a butterfly.  While reading this book you can help your child on his or her own journey to grow up healthy and strong.  To help you, The Alliance for a Healthier Generation has created the following resources:

  •  Tips for Healthy Eating at Home
  •  Reading Guide – Discuss healthy active living using The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle!
  •  Growth Chart (PDF) – Download a special The Very Hungry Caterpillar growth chart and keep track of your child’s journey to becoming healthy & strong.
  •  Learn more about the collaborators and the campaign.
