It seems there is a consensus among key stakeholders in the education sector changes are required to the our education system. We have become long winded about how the changes should be implemented -we note that Minister of Education Ronald Jones does not agree. A good point of entry –BU suggests – is to implement change at the primary level as soon as possible.
How do we mold behaviours in our children to practice a healthy lifestyle for example. This is very important when confronted with the frightening label that Barbados has one of the highest non communicable disease rates in the world.
Against the foregoing the BU household is pleased to introduce the book Eggbert Egg Fulfils his Destiny. The book was created by Alex and Laura Weetch with input from their daughter Oliva. Alex has Bajan lineage!
Here is the Weetch’ note to BU:-
Why did we create it?
There’s so much unhealthy food out there that undoes all the effort parents put into teaching their children about healthy eating, that we decided to try to be part of the solution.
What does it solve for families?
Our story gives parents a fun way to teach their children about healthy eating from day one. It shows kids where food comes from and how good food let’s them do amazing things.
How you can help
We’d love if you could help a Bajan family share their lovely children’s book with other families just like us.

What else is interesting about our book?
- We are donating books to children in need all over the world through our partnership with the World Literacy Foundation who help lift children out of poverty through literacy.
- We’ve spent 3 years writing, illustrating and perfecting it using our daughter Olivia’s growing imagination as our guide. She’s been our Chief Editor! What she liked stayed; what she didn’t, didn’t.
What’s the story about?
Eggbert Egg is an exciting tale of one special egg’s pursuit of happiness. We follow Eggbert, from farm to plate, on a journey filled with fun and adventure, learning about where food comes from and why healthy eating is so important.
Success to date
It’s all going really well. We are over 67% funded (nearly $13K AUD) and in the top 5-10 children’s books on Kickstarter globally!
Thanks for getting in touch and in advance for any support you can give us. It’s not about the money for us, we will break even at best. We just hope you might spare a thought for a dad and mum-preneur duo pursuing a dream and working 24/7 to make it a reality.
