Introducing Mitch Spinach!

Mitch Spinach

Introducing the new, healthy super-kid on the scene, Mitch Spinach™! With colorful illustrations and multicultural characters, this innovative and timely new children’s books series introduces Mitch Spinach™, a smart, cool role model who gains super powers from the nutritious plant foods he eats and solves exciting mysteries at Sunchoke Elementary.


We all know that it can be a struggle to get children to eat healthy foods, especially when their peers are so often eating junk food. Geared towards children ages 3-10, the first book in the series, The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach™, is unique because it prompts kids to eat healthy foods independently.

Mitch Spinach seems to be an ordinary kid, but his classmates have begun to suspect something. The notes in his custom-made, temperature- controlled Nutripak™ lunchbox appear to have been written in code. While other kids eat their usual chicken fingers and pepperoni pizza, Mitch Spinach mixes up his meal in a battery-powered blender before their curious and envious eyes. Although he is the smartest, nicest, strongest kid in Ms. Radicchio's class, he often misses recess when he is called to Principal Lycopene's office. The truth is that his high-powered fruit and vegetable smoothies give him special powers, such as super- sonic hearing and amazing night vision, to tackle problems and solve mysteries at Sunchoke Elementary.

The Mitch Spinach™ books include an additional Teaching Points section, written in collaboration with Dr Fuhrman, as well as bonus recipes. Dr. Fuhrman presides over the nutritional and medical aspects of the Mitch Spinach mission, ensuring that the information presented in the book and on the website are based on sound medical and nutritional evidence.

Oh, and, by the way, the website is really cool! It contains more nutrition facts, recipes, and fun, educational games and is a great resource for parents, kids, and educators.

Grab your own copy of The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach™ before it sells out!

Even if you don't have young children, this book is a perfect gift for
grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and any other kids who like mystery stories!

Check it out. It's truly a ground-breaking book series.

Great idea! If you can set up interactive animation in the games section, that's what the young ones (ages 3-7) will go for.
Build a salad by dragging veggies to a big salad bowl or plate and have a color palette/brush at a side panel so the kids can color the veggies as well, and when they're done, have Mitch pop up with his buddies with a "wow"-thumbs up-type animation or sound. Another idea--have kids move a wheel barrel to catch mangoes falling from trees (with a timer) and avoid catching the occasional junk food which falls from the sky. After catching 10 mangoes, another "good job" pops up. Another idea--have kids become Mitch (or another character--a super girl character would be great) as he leaps into the sky, going higher and higher as he catches blueberries (and avoiding bags of potato chips which will cause him to fall). Another idea--make a cauliflower sheep or other "animals" or figures where kids click/drag limbs, ears, nose, etc (with realistic and silly choices in each category to make it more fun). Check out PBS kids, Barnie, Sesame Street sites for their free games to get ideas. Little kids LOVE those sorts of games and it may be the clincher for them to try new foods.
