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 ›
This kids book explains "traffic light eating", where red means stop and think (i.e. limit these foods), yellow means "slow down" (i.e. eat in moderation) and green means "go" (i.e. eat lots of these). The spectrum has processed junk foods as red and fruits veggies and other :grow foods" as green, with other in between stuff as yellow.
This book also helps kids get a sense of what the various parts of food do for your body (carbohydrates give you energy, etc), and it address the importance of exercise for your body as well.
This book is basically a kids version of the goals a healthy family should aim for. As a health coach I obviously love how simple it makes everything and it helps lay out foundational information that support large scale change. The basics in this book will set a family or child up for a lifetime of health.
Good for about 4-8 year olds, depending on the kid.
