About the Book

Have you ever sat down to a plate of your favorite food and the person next to you says “Yuck! That is GROSS!”? “Don’t yuck my yum” can be your reply, “you might like it too if you try.” “Don’t Yuck My Yum!” is a book that teaches some basic healthy eating concepts to kids and parents in a fun and unique way. Children will learn that saying negative things about food can affect the food choices and eating habits of others. Throughout the book, readers will learn other valuable nutrition messages, like how important it is to try new foods and to eat foods that are many different colors. The mission of DYMY is to encourage kids and parents to learn about healthy eating together in a fun way so that habits are formed early on in life that they will carry into adulthood.

About the Author

Amy Pleimling is a registered dietitian and mother of three children. She has a wide background in the field of nutrition but it was during her experience as a supermarket dietitian where she found her passion for teaching kids the importance of being healthy. The childhood obesity epidemic is the driving force behind “Don’t Yuck My Yum!” Amy believes that it is small, repeated efforts that make the most impact on healthy lives. Because eating habits are formed at a young age, she feels strongly about educating children on nutrition now, so they can be healthy adults later. Through “Don’t Yuck My Yum!” Amy hopes to teach healthy eating concepts in a fun way that will appeal to both children and adults.
