Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Della A. Yannuzzi
The authors present a hypothetical situation: What if you owned a restaurant and thousands of people were coming to your town to run in a race? The runners need good food and nutrition in order to run a good race. What will you serve them to keep them strong and full of energy? Four food menus are possible, and the owner must decide which one is the best choice. It is now up to the reader to solve this science puzzle by learning about healthy foods and what kinds of food the body needs to run a race. In order to do this, the reader needs to learn about the Food Guide Pyramid, the importance of protein, carbohydrates and good fats. The reader also is informed about foods to avoid such as too much sugar and bad fats that can cause blocked heart arteries. In addition, the reader needs to know about vitamins and minerals and what kinds of food will meet their vitamin requirements. Other topics examined are the digestive and circulatory systems. Once the reader has the information he needs to choose the best menu for runners, he is asked to look at the pros and cons of each and utilizing critical thinking skills, choose the best selection based on the information that has been presented in the book. Many illustrations are included, as well as a glossary, further reading, additional notes, and index. Reviewer: Della A. Yannuzzi
