An ingenious and entertaining picture book to entice your little fussy eater to look beyond 'beige' and explore a whole new colourful world of food!
Mummy's in a bad mood. She's fed up of food like chicken nuggets, pasta, chips, cereal and crisps. Then she has an idea! She's going to take her children to the supermarket to play a game. On Monday she tells them to choose three RED foods, on Tuesday three YELLOW foods, on Wednesday three GREEN foods... Look at all the foods there are to choose from!
Which three foods would YOU choose? And how would YOU eat them?
This cleverly concocted picture book features deliciously illustrated pages of red, yellow, green, orange and purple foods for your child to choose from. Enjoy the story together and then take your child to the supermarket to play the game in real life! Recommended by paediatric dietitians to help with fussy eating, it's a fun and effective way to coax your child out of their comfort zone and encourage them to go for something new and different.
From Claire Potter, the best-selling author of Getting the Little Blighters to Eat, and with gorgeous illustrations from Ailie Busby.

This is a fun, non-judgemental approach to 'picky eating' that should definitely encourage youngsters to try some new foods and Claire Potter, the author includes two sets of notes to help adult sharers to 'get the most out of ' the book. -- Jill Bennett ― Red Reading Hub
This book is great for at home or at school; I've enjoyed naming the foods and discussing them with my toddler and I could see the scope of activities at school - particularly with Early Years and Key Stage 1. There are clear links to healthy eating, DT and science. -- Liz ― ReadingZone
I love how the story describes what the children do with the food- how they eat it or use it to make something tasty. Each page is wonderfully illustrated and I love the use of colourful language to describe the different foods. -- Rascals and Rainbows ― Instagram: @rascals_and_rainbows
This could be a great way of encouraging kids to try new foods and think about food in a fun, healthy way. -- Story Centred Play ― Instagram: @storycentredplay
Which Food Will You Choose? by Claire Potter and [illustrated by] Ailie Busby is a fabulous interactive picture book that gets children thinking about all the wonderful, colourful food there is to eat. It has provided us with hours and hours of fun and games. It is perfect for little ones who are fussy eaters, or for children like my daughter, who love cooking and play-pretend shopping. ― PictureBookPerfect123
The variety of food in the picture gave discussion to new foods that we've not tried and learning more about the ones we are more familiar with. -- Jane ― The Green Parent
A stunning, beautifully illustrated book offering great opportunities to discuss foods with fussy eaters.
The book could easily be used in early years settings, offering a great stimulus to get young children think about foods they are familiar with, and introducing others.

This is a fun way for kids to get interested in picking a more colourful foods, and hopefully to enjoy a more healthful diet. In the back of the book it gives tips on how to read the book with your children and how to implement it in real life.
It was a fun read and we really enjoyed it. It made my daughter want to have a go at picking out three things the way the children did and encouraged her to look for some more colourful things at the store the next time we went.
The illustrations are clear, the language interesting, and the story short so interest does not waiver.
You can couple this book with physical foods or alongside the popular shopping trolley game to create more interaction with the subject matter of food. Highly recommend it, would make a great gift for those who don't necessarily have picky eaters as it also increases learning and dialog regarding counting and colour groups!
