THE much-loved story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar will come alive in the City Centre next week.
It's all part of an initiative being driven by Coffs Harbour City Council, Mid North Coast Health Promotion, Go4Fun, Coffs City Library and Coffs Coast Growers Market to help teach kids and their parents about the importance of healthy eating and being active.
The annual 'Healthy Kids Eat Healthy Food' promotion will kick off on Tuesday, running through until Thursday.
On Tuesday the Coffs City Library will host Story time in City Square. Mid North Coast Health Local Health District health promotion officer Pam Johnson will also be on hand with some fun, food-related games and prizes.
On Wednesday Go4Fun will descend on City Square with great games for kids to participate in including Caterpillar Hopscotch.
Parents will also get to learn about the Go4Fun program.
On Thursday at the regular Growers Market children will have the chance to make Very Hungry Caterpillars, enter a colouring competition and taste-test some healthy fruit and veggie snacks.
