Whatever It Takes

Supermarket Super Group helps little ones make healthy choices

Local parents Candice and Darren Romanelli wanted their two daughters to lead a healthy lifestyle right from the start. So they invented the Supermarket Super Group, a cast of animated food friends who teach little ones the importance of nutrition and good health through stories and songs.

You can introduce the characters through a picture book ($19.99) that takes your child on a journey through the supermarket after closing time, when produce comes to life and the Supermarket Super Group Band sings songs while baking a birthday cake for their friend Lickety the Lollipop. There’s also an album ($10.99; individual tracks available on iTunes) and, yes, an app ($1.99 for full version).
