-Puts the revised 2005 Food Pyramid designers to shame with its straightforward, clear approach (versus the revised pyramid 'stripes' that are supposed to indicate how much of each fod group to eat but who can figure it out at a glance?)

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.

What a wonderful resource for parents who are trying to "do the right thing" -- to teach their children healthy eating habits in the midst of a society that promotes the fast, processed, and packaged. Dr. Sears categorizes food into green light/yellow light/red light groups, and it's a concept my children (ages 2, 4) readily understand. The text is simple and clear, and the message is presented in a fun way. This book would be a big help to any parents interested in changing their families' eating habits for the better. There are parts in the book that are just for parents: they explain nutrition, as well as make suggestions on how to incorporate more "green light" foods in the family's meals. My children enjoy this book. They ask for it by name -- we've read it dozens of times.

I purchased this book because I've enjoyed some of the other books by Dr. Sears, and thought it would be a good way to teach my kids about making good food choices. I was expecting a very basic discussion of eating right - the "eat more veggies and fruits" and "stay away from junk" type discussion that we've heard a million times. I was very pleasantly surprised to find the book covering more in depth nutritional topics, like partially hydrogenated oils or refined sugar/flour. But they're presented in a very accessible way that's easy for children to understand. The book also talks about the need to drink plenty of water. The green-yellow-red food organization works well. I'm glad that the book doesn't try to tell you that you can never have treats like cake or pizza - just that that you don't want to eat too many, too often. The book also comes with a small poster that shows the "traffic light foods." We hung it on our fridge, and now both of our children evaluate what they're eating using the Green-Yellow-Red model. The message has really made an impression on my kids. Sometimes when we're in the store and my kindergartener reaches for junk food, I can tell him it's a Red Light food, and immediately he understands and stops asking for it. I'm so impressed. This book is truly an asset to families. I'd recommend it to anyone.

I'm a certified heart coach through the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute (yes, the institute is founded by the author of this book), and I LOVE this book! It summarizes many of the techniques I use as a health coach. But with or without a health coach, these concepts are simple to implement and simple to use as an individual or as a parent, as you can teach your kids these techniques to empower them to make healthy choices on their own.

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.
