“We know a well-nourished child does better in school and Healthy Foods from A to Z teaches the alphabet, stimulates creativity . . . and introduces fruits and vegetables most likely unknown in some cultures. This is a book for the whole family.” —Edie Wiltsee, MPH, MS, CLC, program director, Monterey County California Health Department
“The perfect tool to aid parents in their goal to feed wholesome, organic food to their children for habits that will last a lifetime and so much fun that children won't even realize they are learning, too!” —Ruth Yaron, author, Super Baby Food!
“We know that children eat a more varied and healthful diet if they participate in meal planning and shopping. If they have involvement they are more invested in it. This book capitalizes on that tendency, making food and eating a pleasant and creative game.” —Loraine Stern, MD, FAAP, coeditor, Nutrition: What Every Parent Needs to Know
“What a wonderful way to get kids interested in learning about healthy eating—and at the same time expand their English and Spanish language skills! The book exposes kids to fruits and veggies they may not see on their own table, so it encourages the whole family to try new foods.” —Bridget Swinney, MS, RD, LD, author, Baby Bites
“This delightful book is illustrated with photographs of healthy food . . . particularly helpful in that it includes suggestions for making your own healthy food faces, along with other projects. There is also supplemental information for parents about the nutritional benefits of the foods depicted . . . provides young Spanish-speaking readers with something more intangible, yet vitally important: a sense of their cultural heritage. Recommended for school or public library collections that serve bilingual and Spanish-speaking readers.” —School Library Journal
