While visiting a second-hand store, Jesse encounters a Magic Plate that teaches him how to eat healthfully and the importance of good nutrition and exercise for optimal health. This book is designed to teach children the basic messages of good nutrition. It motivates children to eat healthfully and entertains them with its fun and age appropriate story. Children can have fun making their own Magic Plates with the three Magic Plate projects included in the book. These projects further reinforce the healthy eating concepts learned. Does your child have questions about healthy eating and nutrition? The special section provided for grown-ups, containing easy to understand basic nutrition information, is a wonderful resource. Jesse's Magic Plate is a read-aloud story for younger children and a self-read story for older children. Equally appropriate at fun-time, bed-time, or in the classroom, Jesse's Magic Plate will inspire all who read it to be the best they can be!
