2.0 out of 5 stars Should have veggies as a YUMMY, May 15, 2008
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Yummy Yucky (Board book)
I really like the idea of this book, but with all the obesity in kids and in America today, ice cream and cupcakes should not be on the 'yummy' pages of this book. Not that they aren't yummy, but peas, spinach or fresh fruit should be listed as yummy. I was just disappointed that with so many weight issues, and I'm trying to raise my baby to love his veggies (which he does), it's a bummer books like this don't exemplify healthy nutritious eating.

I appreciate the heads-up. I was looking at this book with hopes it would help encourage my stubborn toddler to try some other, healthy food choices. Cookies and ice cream are harder to discourage than convince him they are yummy.
Although, I am sure that if you were just looking for a book for fun vs. subliminal teaching, it is probably as great as the rest of his books.
Thanks.

Well, the opposite of yummy icecream is too much icecream, which i guess is a good enough message, and can be regarded as good way of teaching moderation : "even though icecream is yummy, too much is yucky". After all, it is more likely that a good percentage of US population is obese not because of dinner ingredients, but rather due to portion size and meal distribution.

My kids actually love this book and we add to it with veggies etc. and other Yummy things and other Yukky things. It is a fun book and we as parents should be responsible for exposing them to vegetable :o) Thanks for the comments, I should change my rating to a little higher since it is a cute idea for a book.

I think you're dead on in your original review. As parents we ARE responsible for exposing them to vegetables, true, but one method is in the books we read to them. If this book offered healthy choices I agree with you, it would deserve a higher rating.

Haha I was about to leave almost this exact same comment! Cookies, ice cream, pie?? who is feeding their baby or toddler this stuff? Fish sticks? There are so many yummy healthy foods, I am disappointed that the author really couldnt come up with better ideas!
