Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3–Each of these early chapter books explains the new pyramid's overall structure and gives examples of foods in the target group. Green stresses making healthy choices in each category, such as whole grains, lean meats, and low-fat dairy products, and explains how much to eat each day. Although the books don't specifically address the emphasis on exercise that accompanies the new pyramid concept, numerous photos of active children participating in sports and outdoor play transmit the message. In fact, the enticing color photos of food and of healthy, energetic children should attract browsers as well as beginning readers. Although most libraries probably need to update food and nutrition information to reflect the new food pyramid guide, investing in this entire set of books can be expensive, and purchasing only a couple of volumes would not offer a complete nutritional picture. Loreen Leedy's revision of The Edible Pyramid (Holiday House, 2007), presents a basic introduction to both diet and exercise recommendations as a picture-book story. That title will suffice until other books offer single-volume overviews of the new system.–Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato

These books are so cute - they are really helpful when it comes to teaching the food guide pyramid to children.
