Children's Literature - Beverly Melasi
People all over the world are getting fatter, but it's not just grown-ups who are overweight and obese. More and more children are overweight too, even very young children. History shows that early humans spent nearly every waking moment chasing after their food. The same is true today. Americans want food in abundance, and super sized. So scientists started developing bigger fruits and vegetables, and fast food chains developed the two-for-one deal. After all, if you can buy one hamburger and get another one free, it's a great buy. As a result, portions are getting larger, and so are Americans themselves. Along with super-sized eating, Americans have developed an unhealthy lifestyle of eating more and exercising less. Daily life just doesn't take as much effort as it once did with all the laborsaving inventions designed to save time and effort. So now, children sit at their computers, surf the net, watch television, and listen to music on their iPods or MP3 players instead of moving around. The book is colorful, appealing and fun to read. Parents and children can read together and learn what a healthy lifestyle looks like. It contains a My Pyramid chart to demonstrate how the food groups work. Reviewer: Beverly Melasi
