Synopsis:

Read and find out about the different kinds of food we eat and how to fill up your plate to keep your body healthy in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.

What's for lunch? Your body needs lots of different things to eat, and every kind of food has a different job to do. Did you know drinking milk makes your bones strong? Or that eating carrots helps you see better?

This is a clear and appealing science book for early elementary age kids, both at home and in the classroom. It includes a find-out-more section with simple guides to learn about everyday healthy eating. Both text and artwork were vetted for accuracy by Dr. Carolyn Johnson, PhD, FAAHB, NCC, LPA, and Keelia O'Malley, MPH.
