Gr 1–3—With childhood obesity an ever-growing problem, the subject of this series (helping kids make wise choices when it comes to eating) is an important one. The series details different and varied kinds of food for specific times—breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack—and shows kids how one meal choice can be more healthful than another, e.g., eating bran cereal instead of sugary cereal. The format is reminiscent of the "Eat This, Not That" series (Rodale), which compares meals in a similar way, and the books also discuss issues such as the downside of processed foods, the problem with too much sodium, the advantages of whole grains, and the importance of drinking water. The language is clear and accessible, while the full-color photos, text boxes, and labels attractively supplement the narrative. A food quiz at the end of each title helps drive the points home. While kids likely don't have that much control over what they eat in the first place, these volumes may still provide value in helping them change their thought processes and habits when dealing with food.
