From the Publisher

"[An] engaging book."—Children's Literature

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
This engaging book welcomes youngsters to food town to learn about the five food groups and nutritious eating. The new USDA food plate featuring a realistic plate containing the five groups is followed by cartoon drawings of various foods divided into their appropriate groups. Beginning with grains, then vegetables, fruits, dairy and proteins, cartoon drawings of various kinds of foods join a parade that marches through food town. The foods are labeled and additional boxed facts such as nutrients and non-nutritional foods are included within each group. The previously utilized USDA food pyramid is included at the end to reinforce the inclusion of all food groups needed for a balanced diet as well as a note to parents and caregivers. Daily serving suggestions and amounts needed for children ages four to eight and a glossary are included. It is an appropriate introduction to nutrition for younger children with plenty of information for discussion. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.; Ages 4 to 8.
