Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
One of six in the "Healthy Eating with MyPlate" series designed for level 1 in guided reading, this edition introduces the grains group of foods as part of the nutritional guidelines by the USDA that replaces the former food pyramid. MyPlate is a graphic reminder/guide to eat balanced portions of fruits, grains, vegetables, proteins and dairy in one's daily diet. The five short chapters define grains, give examples of grains and in what form we eat them, discuss why they are important to growing bodies, how they fit into the MyPlate concept and suggest eating whole grains as part of a balanced diet. Simple, repetitive text, boxed vocabulary and large, color photos of grains, foods made from grains and children consuming them make the book appealing to early readers. A visual quiz, a short picture glossary and an index are included. Notes to parents and teachers suggest activities to do before and after reading.
