The Yummy Adventures of Celia and Cedric: Amazing Apples
Celia is a typical little girl who gets bored when there is nothing exciting to do. Her mom is doing the weeding…not fun for Celia! Her dad has to go to work, but he asks her to take a grocery brochure to the new neighbors since he is the local natural food market manager. Celia is happy to help, hoping that the new neighbors have kids she can play with. Here is where she meets Cedric and invites him to a healthy dinner.
When Cedric’s family comes for dinner, they bring a basket of apples to Celia’s family as a gift. Celia’s family laughs since they’ve made an apple cake for dessert. During the meal,the kids find out that apples are filled with things that keep their bodies healthy! This is something you can share with your children as well. There are also three yummy apple recipes included that you can make with your children.
Why are apples good for you?
- Apples are high in fiber and have natural sugars, vitamins and minerals for good energy.

You know the old saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!” Well with all of those good for you things, it is no wonder! Apples are so good for you!
