Oh, thank you so much for writing this book!! It appealed to my two little ones so much because we already called broccoli ‘trees’, so it was just perfect! The celery slide is genius, and rather than the tantrums and tears, this book has started making meal-time fun! Thank you so much for giving me a great tool to encourage my kids to try new things. We are turning all our veggies into an adventure

Love Love Love this children’s book on eating vegetables. As a nutritionist, I know the importance of children eating healthy foods early in life, it creates a great foundation for the rest of their lives. It’s a great children’s book, colourfully illustrated with a message for all children to hear.

Melissa Kent's 'Broccoli... Yes Please,' picture book captures the heart of how children grow and learn through playful engagement. Food is such a sensitive issue for many children and to encourage them to ''just eat the vegetables''. Forcing children to eat is stressful and disconnecting on many levels. This book is a must read for parents, who want to keep their child's connection and emotional resilience secure while encouraging them to explore trying new foods and making healthy choices. And It's FUN
Kerry Spina, Kids in Harmony
A fun-filled food adventure to inspire even the fussiest little eaters to try some super nutritious foods. Melissa's natural talent for storytelling and the beautiful illustrations guarantee loads of giggles along the way. This book will have pride of place in my clinic for the many children I work with who have fears and challenges around trying new foods. I just can’t wait for the next instalment!”

Broccoli Trees Yes Please is an exciting and fresh perspective on eating healthy food for children. My children were in giggles reading the pages and excited to eat their own broccoli trees for dinner. There should be a copy in every family book shelf.
