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
