Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
One in the "Healthy Eating with MyPlate" series and designed as a read aloud book for level L, this book focuses on the concept of a balanced diet. Large, color photos of delicious looking foods, minimal, large text and boldface vocabulary words combine to introduce the MyPlate concept and explain the kinds of foods that make up a healthy diet. Some mention of how the body uses each food group is made but is not emphasized. The inclusion of sugar and fat in the diet is mentioned with a caution on including too much. Exercise and the need for rest are briefly discussed. A short pictorial quiz at the end of the book reviews the food groups. New vocabulary, an index and a note to parents and teachers is included at the end of the book. The inclusion of a glass of juice rather than a glass of milk in the photo of a balanced meal seems out of place since fruit is already present and the dairy group is not. Perfect for reading aloud to the class to encourage discussion. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
