School Library Journal - 04/20/2013 PreS-Gr 1—This well-laid-out book is filled with superb color photos of children eating nourishing foods with enjoyment and helping to prepare them. The youngsters are shown in various indoor and outdoor settings, sometimes displaying brightly colored fruits and vegetables. Throughout, text boxes with nutrition tips are clearly meant for adults. The end page includes a handful of additional recommendations (e.g., "Serve children small portions") and a ChooseMyPlate.gov diagram that offer good information, but, again, aimed at adults. The spare text repeats "Good food makes me strong!" and uses sentences like "I make shakes," "I stir the oatmeal," "We grew the vegetables for the salad," etc., but lacks a story line or enough content to make this a valuable resource.—Nancy Jo Lambert, Ruth Borchardt Elementary, Plano, TX - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
