Overview

2016 Mom's Choice Awards® Winner!
Stargold the Food Fairy has just been named among the best in family-friendly media, products and services. (Silver-Juvenile Books, aged 9-12.)

Stargold the food Fairy is the perfect book for parents who constantly find themselves repeating, "No, we are not eating candies for dinner tonight." The author of the book is a Registered Dietitian who came up with the story as she is one of those parents herself. And when her kids asked: "But why not, mom?" she felt that "Because I said so!" was not a good enough of an answer.

The book is also a great teaching tool for dietitians and educators who wish to explain the importance of nutrition to children in a fun, easy-to-understand manner.

Stargold the Food Fairy takes Lucie on an exciting adventure to Growland. Lucie is amazed when she learns that whatever she eats directly affects everything about her body. Lucie doesn't always appreciate the healthy meals her parents take care to provide. One day, Lucie becomes so angry over the dinner menu that she runs to her room. While Lucie is brooding, Stargold the Food Fairy appears with an invitation to travel together to the magical land of Growland. In Growland, Lucie meets elves that build magical houses and she soon discovers that these houses represent something far more precious. The houses are actually human bodies! Lucie learns that each food group has its own, very important role, and that various foods act as different building materials for her body.

"Good foods build the brain; good books expand it."

About the Author

The author herself will tell you that she is not a writer. "I cannot write - not even in my mother tongue (French), and I certainly cannot draw." She, however, does possess a gift - that of finding competent people within her own surroundings and convincing them to help her in her mission to teach kids about nutrition.
· Claudia discovered her illustrator in 2013 on the day she picked up her son Justin from day camp who came to the door with facepaint on. He had a 3D shark splashing out of water literally coming out of his left cheek. The camp counselor, Chris Hamilton, had drawn on the children's faces to kill time at the end of the day while they were waiting for the late parents. Claudia was so impressed that she asked him if he would be the illustrator for her book.

Her first book editor Katy Quévillon was the mother of her son's new friend at school
Her book fixer was her husband, Peter Zakrzewski
Her website developer, Doug Mckinnon, was a web specialist who previously worked on one of her other projects.
Her book inspiration came from her two children, Justin and Amelie, and their insistence at always asking why.
