The Alliance for a Healthier Generation http://www.healthiergeneration.org/ and the American Academy of Pediatrics http://www.healthychildren.org/English/Pages/default.aspx have joined with the best-selling children's book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, to help families learn about healthy eating habits, using the many foods the caterpillar eats as a jumping off point for health awareness and conversations about food. Both organizations will debut Very Hungry Caterpillar pages on their web sites in March.

"When The Very Hungry Caterpillar burst onto the scene in 1969, children instantly took to it. Was it the color? The texture? The littlest creature who turned into a beautiful butterfly? The fascinating die-cut holes in the pieces of food? Whatever it was, it was pure magic for children. Somehow the book seemed to be created by one of their own, just for them. The word 'classical' is bandied about by publishers, but The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a genuine classic -- for its art, its idea and spirit, and for its dear creator, too." -- Patricia Gauch, editor-at-large of Philomel Books, and Caterpillar creator Eric Carle's editor
