How many ways are there to get our children to read, eat healthy, and be more active? Answer - NONE, until I found Race Against Junk Food. The story is wonderful, action packed but non-violent, and it gently moves a child's belief system into a mode that encourages a healthy lifestyle. What could be better? Read it with your child and see if you don't become more active and eat more fruits and vegetables (and leave that couch & cheeseburger behind).

A great book for teaching the benefits of good eating habits.
Illustrations are colorful and interesting - just what the little ones look for in a book. My grandson always looks for this book in my house.
This is, I believe a must for all parents of young children (together with the children) as it will remind them of the importance of eating the proper foods.
Grammar schools should also use this in their health classes.
More books like this PLEASE....... Maybe this is the way to a slimmer youth.

Excellent, The Race Against Junk Food is a wonderful way to teach kids, parents and grandparents (like me) about healthy eating habits. My 5 year old grand girl loves this book. It's colorful characters and great story keep her interested from start to finish. She even tells other people about the book, and wants all her friends and family to order a copy right away. I highly recommend this book and encourage everyone to read this colorful guide toward good nutrition.

I have a 2 year old and a 5 year old and it has been a bedtime favorite for a couple of months. The story is fun and the characters are cool and colorful. Since the characters are fruits and vegetables, the book furnishes you with a fun way to talk about healthy eating.

I am glad that my best friend happened to mention how much her daughter loved "The Race Against Junk Food." We were talking about books for our kids. Having read KR's review (above) previously, I had second thoughts about buying this book for my son.

I would agree that this book won't win any literary awards. However, for me the most important critic of this book is my son. And he loved it! He's asked that I read it over and over again. And most importantly, he's taken a keen interest in eating healthy.

My understanding is that "The Race Against Junk Food" is supposed to be a MOTIVATIONAL book. There is plenty of "how to" books about what our children should eat. And still up to 1/3 of our kids are obese. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that we should all eat lots of fruits and vegetables. My issue is getting my son to want to eat healthy.

I would respectively suggest that from my son's point of view this book is like the movie that the critic pans and everyone else loves.

I have a six year old son who loves this book, especially the pictures. There are a few pages that have extravagant landscape scenes with tons of stuff going on and we play a "where's waldo" type of game to find all the different types of fruits and veggies and also find the different snack posse team members. He absolutely loves it.

The story is fun and not preachy at all and it's good to see my child with good eating habits on his mind. What more can I ask for?
