Munch is the story of Randy, a young boy who loves to snack on candy and gobble up sweets. When his mother invites Randy to run and play outside, he prefers to stay in and watch TV on the couch. But one day Randy gets hungry, and unable to find any sugary treats in the house, his adventure begins! Follow Randy’s magical transformation as he learns to love fruits and vegetables. When he eats a carrot, he begins to hop like a rabbit. When he snacks on a banana, Randy runs outside to swing from the monkey bars. How will oatmeal and steak work their magic? Will he swing like a Mabbit? Or run like a Tonkey? Join in as Randy discovers all of the fun he can have with a healthy snack and a goofy romp outside. Lay a foundation of nutritional awareness for your children with Munch. Let Randy’s adventures serve as a launch pad into their lifelong enthusiasm for the outdoors, health, and activity.

Joey and Steve Hands have been avid sports and health enthusiasts their entire lives. They live in Calgary, where they own sports related businesses that teach thousands of kids annually the value of a balanced and healthy lifestyle. When children became part of their lives, everything got busier. Joey and Steve quickly came to realize the dilemma all parents face when having to balance a hectic schedule with good nutrition. Sorting between the many choices can be time consuming and daunting: But it doesn’t have to be. Nutrition is a simple concept and keeping the basics in mind can help quickly sort through the options available while keeping long term health benefits in focus. For Joey and Steve these decisions became even more daunting when their oldest daughter was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes and Celiac disease. They knew that it was imperative that their children learn about nutrition and stay curious about the fine balance between convenience and health. Their attention turned to educating and nurturing in their children a love for nutritional, whole foods and old-fashioned outdoor fun to set them on the path to a healthy, happy life. Their hope is that Munch can help you do the same for your children!
