About the Author

Hillary Feerick and Jeff Hillenbrand have been married for 15 years and have two young children, a girl and a boy. Months before their first child was born, they began to delve more deeply into infant and maternal nutrition. Health and wellness were priorities for their family, and they wanted to give their children the healthiest start possible. Six years later, compelled by the difficulties of raising healthy children in a fast-paced, junk-food-filled world, they decided to combine their expertise in health (Jeff holds a BS in exercise science) and writing (Hillary holds a BA and MA in English and is an English teacher) to create Mitch Spinach, a healthy role model for children. They wrote the first book in the series, The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach, with a passion to help abate the trend in nutrition-related diseases, such as type II diabetes, childhood obesity, ADD, ADHD, and chronically low immune systems. As parents, they knew that kids do not like to be lectured about eating. However, they also knew that kids desperately needed a cool hero who espouses a healthy lifestyle for them to emulate. The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach provides children with an entertaining, motivating but subtle lesson about eating healthy. They knew that parents would catch the allusion to their old friend Popeye, and kids would love hearing about the new super kid on the block, Mitch Spinach. Dr. Fuhrman is a board-certified family physician, author and nutritional researcher, who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional and natural methods. As one of the country's leading experts on nutrition and natural healing, Joel Fuhrman, M.D. has appeared on hundreds of radio and television shows including: ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CNN, Today, Good Morning America, the Discovery Channel, TV Food Network, CNBC and many more. Dr. Fuhrman presides over the nutritional and medical aspects of the Mitch Spinach mission. His endorsement and collaboration have ensured that the Teaching Points section, recipe and the information presented in the books and on the website are based on sound medical and nutritional evidence. Dr. Fuhrman s book, Disease Proof Your Child demonstrates that good health begins in childhood and that scientific evidence suggests that the food children eat in the first 10 years of their lives can have a critical and profound effect on their life-long health.

FINALLY! THANK YOU! A fun book that entertains and cleverly teaches the concept of good nutrition and a progressive approach to good eating habits. My 6 year old boy/girl twins absolutely love this book and have read it at least 5 times per week since they received it a month ago. Most children fantasize about being super-heroes and now my children are role-playing and fantasizing about being Mitch Spinach and the fun characters in this story. We have made countless healthy smoothies at their request since receiving this book as a present from their grandparents. As a parent, I highly recommend this book if you are interested in adding an exciting and educational story with great characters to your library. BRAVO!

I have been obsessing about the fact that my 8 year old granddaughter has been only eating macaroni and cheese and peanut butter and jelly for the past several years. She won't touch fruit or vegetables. I thought Mitch Spinach might be a good book to help her understand why it's important to try new things and begin to eat healthy food. I sent to the book to her in Chicago, and she read it with my daughter and she began to eat carrots, some fruit and other vegetables. Thank you for writing this book. It really helped.

The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach is a fun and thoroughly appealing book. I purchased one for my six-year-old daughter and just had to send one to my two-year-old nephew as well; both kids loved the story and the vivid illustrations. As an adult, I appreciate this intelligent book and the message it sends: eating well can make you smarter, faster, and better able to solve the problems you may face each day. Mitch Spinach is a hero in our home, and we can't wait to read about his next adventure!

As a Grandmother of 4, I am always searching for a book that is written to teach as well as to be entertaining. Mitch Spinach does just that. The book is well-written with wonderful illustrations, and it contains a wonderful hero who teaches us that good nutrition can make us a better and smarter person. In this day of childhood obesity, it is a delight to read a book that focuses on good nutrition. It will make a great holiday gift for my grandchildren!

Very good. It appealed to a 12 year old (I am a little old for the "cartoonie" plot, but this isnt aimed at me). The plot is very aimed at kids. The regular super hero action thing. After reading it my daughter wanted a froot smothie with a little spinach in it :-)

We have 3 children ages 8, 6 and 4, and while our daughter is eager to try new foods, our boys are definitely not! We purchased "The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach" to support our good friends, never thinking it would have such an impact on our boys' eating habits. Well, we were happily surprised when the boys actually asked us to prepare some spinach for them. Not only did they *try* a new/healthy food, but they finished their spinach salads, and even asked for it in their lunches the next day!
Needless to say, Mitch Spinach is a superhero in our house!!!

Great book for kids and nice pictures to go along with story. A little pricey but not a standard book. Makes kids want to be healthier and try the Mitch Shake......
