Format: Hardcover
Drawing upon her more than 25 years of experience turning kids onto to healthy eating habits, Barbara Storper (Founder and Director of FoodPlay Productions) wrote "Janey Junkfood's Fresh Adventure" because the average American boy or girl consumes more than 150 pounds of sugar a year (with one-third of it coming from soft drinks), while only one percent of American children eat the recommended servings of fruits, vegetables, calcium-rich foods and whole grains. Then there is the acknowledge problem of childhood obesity which is doubling among children and tripling among teens -- who in turn are also seeing an increase in eating disorders. Energetically illustrated by Frances E. Schneid and presented in a scrapbook-style layout, "Janey Junkfood's Fresh Adventure" will help children (and help the parents of those children) to understand that for reasons of health and well-being, children of all ages must break their junk food habits and addictions, while developing an attitude that good eating is also good fun with great taste. Simply stated, "Janey Junkfood's Fresh Adventure" should be a part of every school and community library collection in the country!

I have just finished reading this book and I can't wait until my granddaughter is old enough to understand the FABULOUS lessons Janey shares.(She's only 10 months and just starting on leafy greens....) The illustrations add to the fun reading the book. Janey rocks! Children of every age, (up to 99!) can benefit from this "Fresh Adventure". It makes learning easy.

Format: Hardcover
Twelve-year-old Janey Juarez wants to be an internationally famous juggler. She has a problem though. She frequently drops the juggling balls. Unless she overcomes her clumsiness, Janey likely won't even qualify for the Junior National Juggling Team.

Janey believes an unusual routine might help her win a position on the team. She hopes juggling five balls, simultaneously balancing a loaf of French bread on her nose all while riding a unicycle, will impress the judges. This ambitious idea fails. Janey cannot even manage to balance a hotdog bun on her nose.

Tobe Fit, Janey's bosom buddy and the narrator of Janey Junkfood's Fresh Adventure, sees Janey's predicament and decides to help her. When she grows up Tobe wants to be a detective, so she investigates to uncover the root of Janey's trouble.

Almost immediately, Tobe spies the villain-a daily diet of junkfood. Tobe establishes a regime of healthy food to alter the quality of Janey's diet.

Based on FoodPlay's Emmy Award-winning TV special of the same name, Fresh Adventure is a child-friendly, interactive book. It is chock-a-block with ingredients that kids will devour. Each page is a tossed salad of colourful pictures, drawings, notes and memos, and Tobe Fit's piquant narration are hand-printed on separate sheets of loose-leaf binder paper.

Fresh Adventure explain to children the harmful effects of a diet obese with junk food and offers practical methods for transforming an unhealthy diet into a healthy one.

Two pages of Tickets to Fresh Adventures duplicate ones Tobe uses as tools in her scheme to gradually modify Janey's diet. Each ticket--from Yogurt Parfait, through Broccoli Forest, to Veggie Confetti--is essentially a simple recipe for a nutritious meal.
