Its concept for green / orange / red light foods is straightforward, extremely well presented and easy to understand and APPLY. The book provides clear and convincing explanations about each food group and their particular effects on your body. Surprisingly comprehensive introduction to key nutriets is also covered. Illustrations are appealing, colors of each food are accurate and therefore relatable for children (many other kids 'food' books are NOT!) While the illustrations are simple, they are easy to identify and relate to and several are funny and gain laughs.
The typical obstacles for trying new foods is addressed, so kids start off knowing that these great greenlight foods may look and taste a little different but you quickly grow to like them and also that we can train our taste buds. Its straightforward approach provides convincing reasons for eating healthy - even 'grown-ups' may be surprised at just how clear the message is for such a relatively short book.
My five year old is sharing with his Kindergarten friends why the hydrogenated oils and coloring are not good for one's body and showing an interest in reading food labels.
This resource provides parents with a strong resource for arming children with appealing reasons to begin to make good food choices in such a carb/sugar overloaded environment and help them understand why their fresh veg, nut, yogurt, fruit lunches and snacks help them grow healthy and feel good far more than the donuts their best friend brings to school.Read more ›
The book also comes with a quality mini-poster reminding your child about the different types of foods and which are green: "eat all you want," yellow: "slow down!" and red: "these are bad for your body and your heart."
The illustrations are engaging and pleasantly colorful, showing a healthy family interactions, lifestyle, and a proper attitude towards food. Entertaining without dumbing-down solid information your child can use all of his/her life.
Martha and William Sears have done it again. I can't recommend this book more highly. If you are looking for a book on potty training, you should see their other book: You Can Go to the Potty. Thoughtful and excellent sources by the famous pediatrican and his wife who is a registered nurse: both parents to a large family.
