(All the ingredients kids need for tons of healthy fun).

Mmmmmm. In the mood for a Tropical Chicken Kabob? How about a scrumptious Blueberry Power Snack Turnover? This delightfully clever cookbook--from the authors of the hugely popular Science Chef books--combines delicious recipes, kid-friendly activities, and lots of fun ways to learn about health and science. All of the recipes can be made with household ingredients and standard kitchen equipment, and all of the activities are designed to teach kids valuable lessons about the crucial role diet and exercise play in the development of their hearts, bones, muscles, skin, teeth, and nervous systems.

Includes clever activities that make learning fun, such as making a stethoscope to hear your own heartbeat, testing the strength of hair, and making a map of your teeth. * All recipes feature easy-to-obtain ingredients and are coded according to degree of difficulty, from beginner to pro. * Provides information on cooking tools and skills, rules for kitchen safety and clean-up, and nutritional value of all recipes.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Wendy Pollock-Gilson
This cookbook successfully combines health information, science experiments and kid friendly recipes. Families and teachers will enjoy completing projects such as "Honey-Raisin Pick-Me-Up Popcorn Snack" and a homemade stethoscope. Each chapter covers a different aspect of maintaining a healthy body, with hands-on experiments and related recipes. Simple black and white drawings illustrate the tools and food needed for each activity. Elementary and middle school teachers can use this book to create cross-curriculum units in which children will learn and have fun. Parents will appreciate the simple healthy recipes. The "Pick-Me-Up Power-Packed Lasagna" and the "Strawberry-Kiwi Cooler" look great!
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6--This book of 56 healthy recipes is arranged according to parts of the human body they benefit: heart, blood, muscles, bones, teeth, skin, hair, nails, nerves, and digestive system. For each one, there is a description, an activity or experiment, and some recipes. The clearly described activities and information provide a structure for the book; however, the main focus is nutrition and healthy cooking. In addition to the standard cooking skills and safety rules, there are three helpful appendixes: "Nutrient Content of Recipes," "How to Read a Food Label," and "What's Safe to Eat." Later chapters include information on the food guide pyramid, exercise, weight control, and proper eating habits. The line drawings are helpful and the writing is informal but straightforward. The recipes are clear, thoroughly explained, and tasty; level of difficulty is indicated by number of chef's hats. Important information related in an encouraging way.--Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME
