Title:
The brick eater
Authors:
Broadley, Leo
Abstract:
Illustrated 32 x Picture Book for 4-7 year olds related to issues of the current global obesity epidemic in children. The metaphor for food as a brick, with a central non-human character is the USP of this work. The text is a non-rhyming text that can be translated into world languages and avoids issues of ‘self-loathing’ in children. This simply means that works about obesity should not refer to fatness, or physical size as a measure of obesity as this can lead to identification and victimisation of individuals in class. Current medical research points to the idea that children and adults may be ‘fat on the inside’ and that no obese child in the class should be made to feel that they are identified (by peers) in relation to the story, and that actual health refers to access to balanced diet, enough sleep, physical fitness as well as good nutrition.
