The Adventures of Captain Heart
Studies have shown that about 24 percent of U.S. children aged 2 to 5 are overweight, defined as having a body-mass index (BMI) in the 85th percentile or above for their height and age. That number rises to 33 percent among children aged 6 to 11, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Published in 2009, The Adventures of Captain Heart was the first heart health promotion book aimed at children 3 to 7 years old, written by Eugene G. Lipov, M.D. and his then six-year-old son, Sam. While addressing the serious subjects of heart disease and obesity, the book takes a fun approach to appeal to young children. Dr. Lipov and his son tell the story of a superhero, Captain Heart (who looked like a heart with legs) who helps a young boy and his grandfather become strong again by eating right and exercising.
The book has been used by pediatricians and parents to help teach young children how to eat better and prevent heart disease. Dr. Lipov is currently writing a cookbook to accompany the series. For additional information on The Adventures of Captain Heart, please visit the book’s website here.
