About Nourish Our Kids

Praise for NOK

I applaud Nourish Our Kids for creatively developing a movement to teach children and their parents how to live a healthy lifestyle. My daughter and I enjoyed reading the book and listening to The NOK Rockers theme song. We wish Nourish Our Kids continued success and can’t wait to read the next NOK Rockers adventure.

Thank you so very much for coming to our class on Thursday. I learned a lot of new things about my health and everyone's health. Now know soda, candy, and junk food is not good for my health, so I'll cut that habit out. I am sometimes tired. I thought it was because the class is boring, but it's because I don't eat breakfast nor lunch. I'm pretty hungry after school. Sometimes I would get a pizza or a bagel. Sometimes a pack of chips and a soda. Sometimes walk up stairs to the 5th floor gives me a headache, but now I know why!

Thank you so much!

Thank you for coming in and teaching our class about Nutrition and health. I have heard many guest speakers and I must say, I enjoyed and learned the most from you. It was a pleasure listening to your interesting and helpful facts. Because of you, I will change my lifestyle, in a good way. I thought that this was going to be a boring lecture but within ten minutes it was the best one I have ever had the pleasure to listen and learn about. I am thrilled about starting a new, fresh start to my life style because of you. I am going to live on a healthy, balanced diet which will help me to a more fun and successful life! I am so excited that I am starting right away. Thank you once again for coming in on your busy lives and talking to our class.

Sincerely,

Zachary

Donna has brought and continues to bring, not only her experience as a mother, but her research and education as a Certified Nutritional Therapist to her workshops at Borders Books in Westbury, over the years. She shares concepts that have shaped her theories on raising healthy children with simple, basic nutrition that makes sense and is easy to live with in today's busy households. The recommended reading list reads like a bibliography of the best of whole food cooking. Audience participation and shared successes round out the evenings and keep people coming back.

Praise for the Book

Thank you for the book! It fit in perfectly because we are learning about food. The book definitely reminded me of a TV show. After we finished the story, a lot of the boys shared that they liked the book because of the adventure, when the rock star changed, etc. Best of luck!

I read the NOK Rocker book to my granddaughter who is eight years of age. When we finished, I asked her what the book was about. She replied, "that children should eat go foods to keep them fit and healthy". She particularly liked the illustrations and I believe that helped her understand the story. I commend you for the efforts you have made to improve nutrition for children and wish you great success.

I have 4 children ranging in ages from 13 to 3. We all read the book and everyone loved it! The older kids thought it was funny and appreciated the healthy message. My 3 year old sings and talks about the NOK Rockers all around the house. Reading is such a part of our family past time as well as healthy eating. I am thrilled to have a book that entertains the kids and sends such a great message. Nourish Our Kids will truly make a difference with this fun approach to teaching children about eating healthy.
