This is one in a series of six books about food. The other titles include: Food as Fuel: Nutrition for Athletes; Food Buzz: Nutrition in the News; Food Culture: Celebrating Diverse Traditions; Food Options: Following Special Diets; and Food Safety: Avoiding Hidden Dangers. This book is written by a Registered Dietitian (RD) and is current on USDA’s dietary recommendations. The MyPlate recommendations are clearly explained as are other government resources such as Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! campaign. The author explains calories and energy, nutrients, food labels, serving sizes, how exercise factors in, and the value of healthy living. All of this information is clearly written, easy to understand, and is given in context of being a child or adolescent. There are relevant tables, diagrams and illustrations. The photography is clear, relevant, excellent quality, and engaging. Overall, students will learn a great deal from this book about eating for a healthy body. There is an Accelerated Reader test (level 4.9, .5 points). I highly recommend this book.
