Is Gardening Superfoods the Answer to Childhood Obesity? Secrets to Superfood Vegetable Gardening Finally Revealed in Aussie Book


QUEENSLAND, Australia February, 2012 – Health and gardening experts alike are fawning over ‘The Superfood Gardener’, a step-by-step guide that reveals the secrets to growing a superfood vegetable garden written by Australian author Sharon Cooper.

Professor Graham, Executive Director of the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, said “The Superfood Gardener marries the joy of gardening and the benefits of growing your own produce, a real plus for anyone wishing to take control of their health and help reduce the risk of contracting serious illness.”

‘The Superfood Gardener’ discusses why people should grow their own vegetable garden and what goes on behind commercial vegetable gardening with real-life examples of processed foods. Soil management, pest and disease identification, propagation and growing from seed, companion planting, health and nutritional benefits for each super food are all explained in a visually appealing way to budding gardeners.

Following the success of ‘The Superfood Gardener’, Sharon Cooper wrote and co-published the perfect accompaniment – ‘Superfood Spike and the Fart of Junkfood Jimmy’ – which teaches children about healthy foods, healthy lifestyles and helps them to understand the link junk food has to obesity in a fun way. The book follows Superfood Spike’s fight to convince his friend Junkfood Jimmy that junk food is bad for his health. Sharon cleverly brings kids’ health and child obesity issues to the forefront as Superfood Spike explains the difference between good and bad types of food and how both impact a child’s growth in a way that children can relate to.

Expert nutritionist Dr. Rosemary Stanton OAM only has praise for the novel way to reach young children. “The Superfood Spike children’s book is a great story that I’m sure children will love. In today’s world where children are so often seen as fair game by sophisticated marketers of junk food, it’s refreshing to find a book that uses humour to teach children (and adults) about the impact of advertising and poor food choices,” reveals Dr. Rosemary.
