Even Monsters Need to Eat Right and Stay Active!
With a monster as their helpful guide, young readers will find it easy and fun to make choices that keep them healthy and happy. This colorful book starts with explanations of each food group and the redesigned food pyramid, and goes on to help readers understand nutrients, how to read food labels, and what it means to count calories. They'll also learn to develop healthy habits, such as making time for breakfast, packing a healthy (and delicious!) lunch, and having a sit-down (as opposed to fast-food) family dinner.
Fun food facts are included throughout the book, and distinctions are made to help kids discern between healthy and not-so-healthy meal choices. Also included is information on the importance of sleep and exercise, as well as a sensitive, age-appropriate overview of food-related illnesses and disorders.
