A fun read for kindergarteners!

One of my favorite books! Always gives me a chuckle! I use it in my Kindergarten class when we discuss the food pyramid. It's a cute read and is an attention grabber with food names like "King Candy Bar" and "Carolina Cucumber." Great, vibrant pictures for kids to see. BTW, the book is a little dated due to the government tweaking the food pyramid in 2006. The book uses the old horizontal model and the newest pyramid has vertical divisions. But I would still definitely recommend the book.

race to healthy eating

This is a wonderful, colorful, and delightful book about the food groups that can keep any elementary school child's attention. The characters are represented by each food group of the food pyramid that doesn't load the students up with facts and figures but rather presents a storyline on how the food groups can learn to get along and work together --sending the message that eating all food groups in proportion is best. This book makes a great read aloud and offers a great introduction to health and nutrition.
