The new healthy kids program that’s ‘Raising Keen Kids’

As parents, we all want our kids to be healthy and happy in life. But how do we instil the habits for healthy kids when, in reality, we are exhausted by simply trying to get the kids to eat their veggies and go to sleep each night? After all, parents nowadays are bombarded with information on what to do and what not to do. Filled with guilt over the unmade green smoothies and the ‘I’m-out-of-ideas’ lunchboxes. It’s no wonder that we feel like our heads will explode!

Well, put the guilt away because Keen Kids is on a mission to help frazzled parents. Designed to make raising healthy kids a world more achievable for families. Because all it takes is simple modifications to our current lifestyle.

When it’s down on paper, we know the basics. But the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ often get lost in the overwhelm of digital information. But seeing it on the page in such simple terms suddenly makes a positive change feel possible.

“My mission is to enable all families to implement enjoyable healthy habits to give their children a chance to shine and show their full potential in life,” says Dr Bernhardi, founder of Keen Kids.

What is the healthy kids movement, Keen Kids?

Central to Keen Kids is the children’s book Meet Charlie the Keen Kid.

The book tells the story of child Charlie and how Charlie learns these five key ingredients to do each day to be happy and prosperous: sleep, water, rainbow food, outdoor play, and kindness to the planet. And each page steps through how to effortlessly introduce them into each day.

There are four parts to the book, all designed to help you implement a healthy framework for your family in a stress-free way:

  • Charlie’s story
  • The Keen Kids song – music and lyrics
  • The brain game
  • Answers and tips for parents and educators


The brain game at the end of the book is an excellent addition. It provides the perfect conversation starters about what else we could do each day. And there is also a video of the song on the Keen Kids website for you all to sing along with and some fun games to play.

Instead of coming away from the book feeling defeated and that familiar inner voice saying, ‘I’ll never manage that (which, let’s face it, is how most healthy lifestyle reads go down), you instead have a refreshing confidence that you can make these basic yet essential changes—even in the chaos of everyday parenting.
