Raw Family Children’s Books

I feel honoured to be doing a review of Victoria Boutenkos Children’s books for a few reasons.

Firstly, Victoria’s book Raw Family was the first Raw book I read.  It introduced me to the world of Raw Food and helped me in my journey to go RAW over 3 years ago now!

Green for life

For those who have not heard of Victoria Boutenko, she is the award-winning author of numerous books on natural health and nutrition for adults and children, including Green For Life which has a wealth of information on green nutrition. Perfect for anyone – raw foodists, vegans, vegetarians, and meat eaters alike – who wishes to develop a healthy diet without making sacrifices to taste or lifestyle.

I also have a copy of Green for life to give away for one special reader just tell me your favorite green smoothie recipe, head over to The Organic Mum Facebook Page to share it.

Secondly I am just a huge Fan of Victoria’s work on spreading the word about all the benefits of Green Smoothies, and like myself she is passionate about educating our children on the benefits of eating our Greens as well.


And thirdly, these books are just delightful, right up this raw food loving family’s alley! I Love Greens is an elegantly illustrated book that tenderly teaches toddlers about the importance of eating healthy.


It is so refreshing to see a book that do not portray animals being produced for food on a farm – which I tend to see a lot of in books and makes me cringe! The pictures are gorgeous and will also help Issy learn about all the beautiful animals that live on this beautiful planet.









Green Smoothie Magic is a captivating story of an adventurous boy who learns how to be healthy in an enjoyable way. A Gift from Little Bear is an entertaining story accompanied by playful, authentic illustrations that convey a healthy message to children.

What I love most about all if these books are the reinforced positive messages about health, communication and love. In so many children’s books these messages are lost or we simply don’t give credit to our kids to be able to understand these messages, the Raw Family’s books do this.
These are such great Christmas presents and presents for any occasion and you can grab your copies at The Organic Mum Store. Be sure to check them out, your kids will thank you for such beautiful inspiring story times!

Right I think with all this green talk its time to make this family a Green Smoothie! Don’t forget to post your Green Smoothie Recipe on The Organic Mums Facebook page to go into the change to win a copy of Victoria’s book Green for Life – Unfortunately this is only open to Australian Residents!
