Portland and JUNK FOOD DUDE IS BORN!…..part 3 of 3

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Feb 09, 2011

I’m ecstatic to announce that my new baby is born! His name is Junk Food Dude!

Check out this cute boy Adam, in Corvallis, Oregon–who got one of the first copies of my new children’s book, The Adventures of Junk Food Dude. Kristin snapped photos of the poor kid for about 10 minutes while he read during my class. They were hot off the press the day before I flew to Portland, so I took a few dozen copies to Portland and did not return with any.

I’m so ecstatic to finally have this book finished. I wrote it because there are NO good children’s books addressing what good nutrition is.

You can now order them on the site, and if you get three or more, use the coupon code JUNKFOODDUDE to get $5 off your order.

Here’s the cover and a page inside the book. And a photo of darling little 4-year old Daniel, who sat on my kitchen bar stool and “read” the book for 20 minutes the day I got back. I have a video but don’t know how to get it off my camera: his favorite pages were the “quiz” at the back with illustrations of all the good and not-too-good foods.

Please let me know your kids’ reactions when you get the book. I don’t mean to brag, but I think it’s pretty upbeat and educational and fun. I love my illustrator, Lori, for catching my vision and working so hard so that her illustrations match my message!

    The coupon code didn’t apply a discount for me??

    Awesome! I will be purchasing this one for my kids. They love reading, and this book will be right inline with helping me and our children keep up with our food choices. It is hard sometimes when my 4 and 7 year old boys come home and say so and so “has pop tarts in his lunch” and so and so “gets orange cheetos and fruit snacks in her lunch, why can’t I?” This will be a great book to pull out and read as a reminder why those choices are not good for everyday lunches. So, thank you for this book, I will let you know what my boys think of it when we get it.

    Are the recipe books ready?

    I pre-ordered one of each, and I’m wondering if they’ll be shipped separately or together.

    Melanie – Did you buy 3 or more? I was confused by that at first — I thought it was $5 off 1 book.

    I was very excited to see this great book, but disappointed when I saw the price. I was hoping it would be closer to $10. 🙂

    We could have done a $12 book but wanted it to be hardback!
