Health Groups Hope “Hungry Caterpillar” Will Help Fight Fat

Written By: Walter Hoerman MD - Mar• 14•11

I loved to read The Very Hungry Caterpillar to my children, and I am glad they are using it to broaden the message of healthy eating.

“The Alliance for a Healthier Generation and the American Academy of Pediatrics are hoping a hungry caterpillar will take a bite out of childhood obesity. The two groups are hoping to use the bestselling children’s book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle to help kids make better choices about what they eat and lifestyles. The book tells the story of a caterpillar that munches its way through a variety of foods.”
