Meet SuperYam™, the superhero who represents the world of fruit, vegetables and healthy eating!
Harry and SuperYam™, written by Sydney mum Alla Novochenok-Serhan and illustrated by Jay Rollins, is the first story from Adventures of SuperYam™; a children’s picture-book series promoting food education and tackling childhood obesity.
SuperYam™ is the intergalactic superhero who travels to Earth to help Harry, a young boy who gets to discover an exciting and wonderful world of fruit and vegetables and through this journey, changes his perception of healthy eating.
With SuperYam™’s help, Alla is inspiring children to think about their food choices and helps parents to facilitate the necessary changes. SuperYam™ teaches children about benefits of healthy fresh food – where it comes from, how it positively impacts on their well-being and how it can ultimately empower them.
A charming rhyme-filled script and bright, vivid illustrations team up to create an easy and understandable read for young children – a journey they can and want to join. Included in the book is also SuperYam’s™ delicious Vegetable Soup recipe – a way to entice young readers to get involved further; perhaps all the way to the dinner table!
