Keen Kids: How to raise healthy children? Use their natural curiosity through story, song, games & answers for parents & educators.

During her medical career, Dr. Alex has learned that the majority of chronic conditions could be prevented if people would be able to live a simpler and healthier lifestyle. Young families however often struggle to implement this advice as our modern society offers too many distractions and temptations. Children in particular are vulnerable to the marketing strategies that surround them and quite often parents are stressed and tired of the daily battle.

However, children have a natural curiosity when it comes to their bodies and its function. All children go through the stage of asking lots of ‘why’ questions. This is the perfect window of opportunity to explain the basic concepts of what the body needs and also to provide them with simple but correct background information.

To make this task easier for kids and adults, Dr. Alex, an Australian General Practitioner, wrote the book ‘Charlie the keen kid’, which has four parts:

  • The story about Charlie – parents can read this with their children
  • A song about keen kids – everything is more fun with music
  • A brain game – to reinforce the messages in a playful way
  • Answers for parents and educators – so adults are not stuck for answers

Combined with an educational game on their website, as well as online ordering, Keen Kids Education can reach families and educators all over the world.

From early learning and child care to tutoring and tertiary, it is an unmissable event for anyone looking at education options in southeast Queensland.
