5-0 out of 5 stars Building Good Nutritional Habits
What a wonderful resource for parents who are trying to "do the right thing" -- to teach their children healthy eating habits in the midst of a society that promotes the fast, processed, and packaged. Dr. Sears categorizes food into green light/yellow light/red light groups, and it's a concept my children (ages 2, 4) readily understand. The text is simple and clear, and the message is presented in a fun way. This book would be a big help to any parents interested in changing their families' eating habits for the better. There are parts in the book that are just for parents: they explain nutrition, as well as make suggestions on how to incorporate more "green light" foods in the family's meals. My children enjoy this book. They ask for it by name -- we've read it dozens of times. ... Read more

Book Description

Did you know that Carbohydrates supply most of the energy your body uses? You should drink at least 5 glasses of water every day? The mineral iron is found in foods cooked in iron pans? 3 slices of bread contain 200 calories?

Jam-packed with fascinating facts such as the ones above, Good Enough to Eat is uniquely designed to satisfy kids' love of food, and their curiosity about how their bodies work.

This book offers all of the basics found in an adult nutrition guide in a format designed specifically for kids. Lizzy Rockwell has filled Good Enough to Eat with funny speech bubbles, detailed illustrations, and an engaging cast of children who munch their way across the pages while explaining everything from why your body needs protein to the food pyramid and how to use it. You'll even find hands-on experiments that test food for fat and reveal the differences between starch and sweet carbohydrates, and recipes using the nutritious foods that children need in their daily diet.

4-0 out of 5 stars Superb introduction to healthy eating for preschoolers
I checked this book out of the library for my five-year old, and she loved it. She got really excited about this book and seemed to love how the pictures illustrated the text. There was this one particular set of pictures that referred to PROTEIN. The first picture showed a girl on the farm doing chores and talking about how protein helps you be stronger. In the background, there were the meat sources of protein: a cow, a lamb, a chicken, etc. On the next page, a couple of kids were next to a beanstalk, talking about other sources of protein--like beans. The pictures were very colorful and eye-pleasing and I loved how the author used word bubbles from the kids in the book to explain--in simple language and with everyday examples, what each nutritional component does for the body. She let the characters teach. In one part of the book, they put on costumes to show which vitamins do what! This book made it really easy for me to discuss the importance of eating right to my child, and--after six months--she still remembers things like, "eggs have protein in them and protein makes you strong!" [her words] There are simple recipes in the back, which we didn't test, but I look forward to trying them out once we get the book again. The only things about this book I didn't like was the lack of scientific activities, but I'm looking into other titles to supplement (like, Janice VanCleave), and a lack of "discussion starters". Otherwise, I think this book is a wonderful way to start your own discussions on healthy eating. One of the great things about smaller children is their need for repetition, so I'll get the chance to come up with a new discussion every time we read this book.

The successful father and son franchise of Dr. Phil and Jay McGraw continues with The Ultimate Weight Solution for Teens. Here, Jay translates the seven keys that made Dad's diet book a mega seller into a smart, supportive teen manifesto for tackling unwanted pounds, body image problems and eating disorders.He uses examples and web postings drawn from his survey with 10,000 teenagers to underline a powerful message: "Weight is not about the size or your Levis or a number on the scale. It's about whether you use food to take care of your body or to abuse it." McGraw's approach is mind over milkshake, skewering the negative thoughts ("I can't have fun if I have to watch what I eat") that keep teens from experiencing "weight freedom." He examines self-defeating filters (denial, approval seeking , perfection, comparison)that distort a healthy approach to weight and also suggests a "peer and parent response plan" to avoid sabotage. He teaches how to scan the environment for eating cues. Even when McGraw rounds up the usual suspects--exercise and a sermon about sugar--he conveys a fresh and relevant message of self-knowledge.The wisdom of McGraw's approach to teen readers is this focus on thoughts and feelings, rather than on the third helping of pizza. --Barbara Mackoff ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Well Done!
By jove I think he's got it. this is really quite good. I was not sure what to expect. I really liked Dr. Phil's The Ultimate Weight Solution and thought that it was a great idea when his son quickly followed with one about teen's obsession with weight. Jay explains how the pressures and changes that are part and parcel to getting older take their toll on the teenage body. Fat piles on much quicker, or maybe for the first time, during your teeanage years.
I bought this book with my daughter in mind and I am really happy with the results that I am already seeing. She has been reading it for a few days and she said that she agrees with a lot of what he says. I think it was a great idea to approach this very touchy subject with a young voice like Jay's.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
Really hit the nail when it comes to helping teenagers cope witht their weight problem. Jay addressess everything from how to have a positive out look on life to ways to start taking control of your weight. I was surprised at how much sense it made to me. It was like this book was written with me in mind. It addressed all the feelings i had towards myself and my weight and made me realized that their more to me than just how much i weighed. This book was surprising well written. Jay is a really talented writer and I thought this was just a knock off of Dr. Phils book, but this book really addressess teens and their issues in a way that is easy to relate to. Well Done.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great coaching tool
Using actual discussions of tough issues teens face day to day around the abuse of food is excellent. The topic of food abuse in young adults and even preteens needs to see the light of day. The number of kids battling serious eating disorders is going up not down and the trend really is frightening.

I picked this up just to see what Dr. Phil's prodigy might have to say about teen weight issues. I expected to be cynically unimpressed and found the lay out was engaging. Each chapter was well thought out and well written. I did not get the impression that this book was slapped together to make a buck. I actually thought the focus was on quality content.

5-0 out of 5 stars Follows in the tradition of great father-son writers
Illya Tolstoy established an impressive writing career apart from his father. And Brian Herbert successfully continued the Dune series after his father passed on. And Andre Dubus III made his father proud with House of Sand and Fog. And now, Dr. Jay McGraw continues the grand tradition. Dr. Phil has obviously trained his son well in the family business. Like his dad, Jay writes with the wisdom and folksy down-home style reminiscent of Mark Twain or Will Rogers. And also like his dad, Jay also has a failrly serious weight problem himself, as is very apparent from the cover photo. But as the elder McGraw is fond of saying, "Yern dont have to be a cow, to tell bubba how eggs is made." Jay takes his dad's tried and true formula, and tailors it to sell to the nations teens. His emphasis on keeping a positive self-image, sprinkled with bits of discipline, proper diet and excercise may be considered a radical approach to weight loss. But it is a message that must be heard by today's youth.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book! Really Helpful!
I am 12 years old and 35 pounds overweight. I got this book about 2 months ago. It had alot of great ideas that really worked. I put this book to the test and in the past month i've lost 10 pounds.

4-0 out of 5 stars A little mistake on one page
I was surprised that on the, "Dry Beans & Nuts" page of this book, peanuts were listed as a nut. Maybe the author wanted to teach that peanuts can be a source of protein, but I don't like the idea of teaching inaccurate information! These days, people learn that nuts grow on trees, that peanuts are not nuts and they grow under the ground. Has the author read any food allergy articles describing peanuts as a legume related to the pea or bean? Or her editor? Fortunately, peanuts were listed close to the "Dry Beans" list, because other legumes such as peas and lentils were also listed.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great book to teach the food pyramid to young children!!!
I am a first grade teacher in Indiana. I used this book with my students when studying the food pyramid. It was a big success. The illustrations were very bright and kept the students attention! The text idea of the restaurant was fun for the children. Their most favorite part was trying to figure out what the creature was that kept trying to get some food.

This book tought me everything a girl sturgels with and how to fix the problems! Every one should buy this book. It shows you how to handle your problems without exploding over every little thing. There are so many stories about girls who have had problems that i face in life and i learn from them mistakes instead of making them again. This book is the best book i have ever read. It talks about everything... including the serch for you intersoul and inner bueaty... ( seeing whats on the inside that counts) this book it tottaly worth your money!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!
This book is my bible! i love it to death. It shows you simple things you forget back into the light and can truly change the way you think about yourself. It makes you realise that you're not alone out there with either eating disorders, abusive relationships, heart aches, suicides, or any situations that are hard to held with emotionally and physically. I've never really got into the chicken books myself, but this book took only a second to love it! i recommand this book to everyone!

3-0 out of 5 stars A disapointment
Well, I love the Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul books, which are coathured by Kimberly Kirberger, and so when I saw this book I lept at the chance to buy it. But I felt a bit let down; I think the Chicken Soup books were MUCH better. This book is filled with input and advice from Kirberger that at times seem too fake to actually appreciate. Yes, some advice is actually helpful, but I found myself gritting my teeth at the near cheesiness of Kirberger's words... I want to read OTHER people's stories, not Kirberger's souped up advice that isn't very original in the first place--most stuff I've heard time and time again.
AND... This book is pretty narrow-minded. Basically all of it is about weight problems. Either, the person was insecure because they couldn't stop eating, or they were fat and stopped eating all together. I can't really relate, because I'm UNDERweight and always hoping and wishing that I will gain some pounds. All these girls are blah blah crying about how fat they are... but not everyone is fat, what about them? They still have insecurities that need looking at.
Some of the stories were interesting, all by someone other than Kirberger. This book focuses on too much of the same thing though and I skipped a lot of Kirberger's blah pages. If you're an OVERweight teen and need comforting, go ahead and read this. If not, skip this book and try a chicken soup one.

5-0 out of 5 stars SAVED MY LIFE
This book was the only place that I could go that I felt safe going. I have had an eating disorder for two years now, and I had no idea that other people suffered the way I did. It helped me to realize things about myself that made me feel good. If you know a teenager that is suffering this book will help them just like it helped me.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent book!
I am an English teacher who recently bought this book . I put my book purchases on my desk...and before I even read it...it was borrowed by a female student. Months went by before I even knew who now had the book in her possession. It seems that each girl handed it to a friend to read...and it went on this way for months. I finally tracked my book down, now with dog-earred pages, and started reading it. It is excellent!!! Phenomenal!!! No wonder the girls loved it. Even as an older woman (43) reading the book, there are many pearls of wisdom to be found in it for females of all ages.

This book is well worth the money...and more importantly...wonderful for a girl's self-esteem and self-acceptance as she walks the path of life. ... Read more

This book really helped our son. I was so glad to find it given his allergy and he easily related to the child in the book. The story describes a realistic situation of a kid taking a dare and the consequences that could result. What was really great about it is that we were able to use the story as a good starting point to talk with our son about well intentioned, or not, friends and adults and what he can and should do in different situations. (It is amazing how many times we've encountered people that think, "Just one little peanut can't hurt.") We ended up giving a copy to our son's teacher who used it in his classroom.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful, not scary!
This book helped a friend's five year old better understand her peanut allergy. She liked the bright pictures and identified with the main character, whose allergy to peanuts made him feel alone until he learned to deal with it. I've read reader reviews, and it seems that kids either love this book or are afraid of its depiction of an anaphylactic reaction. I think a lot of the reaction may depend upon the parent, and on the way he or she presents the message. For this particular little girl, the book was wonderful. It's a gift I would give again.

1-0 out of 5 stars nightmares!!
After reading this book to my five year old he woke up with nightmares. The book shows a kids "proving" to his friends that he can be around peanuts, with dire consequences. To my kid, who has lived through anaphylactic reactions, this brought up many unpleasant memories. Parents of young kids BEWARE.

1-0 out of 5 stars From a kid whose been there, done that
I've read this book and i'm a little bit disturbed by this book. I'm a twelve year old boy with severe peanut allergies. I'll admit i was a little bit of an outkast, but not because of my allergy! and i think that every peanut-allergic [allergic to anything for that matter] kindergartener has thought about eating or trying to eat peanuts. and this book ENCOURAGES it! i think that's a little dumb. thank you for your time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book to read to children

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Resource Tool
We have been using this book with Sonlight Curriculum this year. My children range in age from 6 to 12 years old. The book at times is too difficult for the 6 year old and too easy for the 12 year old, but in general it has been very useful. The chapters are short and difficult concepts are clearly explained. My children are alwys excited to get to the activity section of each chapter, but are disappointed about half the time. The 'activities' usually always work, but they are not always very fun or interesting. ... Read more

This little book fits in a pocket or purse for inspiration and information while you follow the New Beverly Hills Diet. To help you stick to the 35-day weight-loss diet, author Judy Mazel offers tips, affirmations, and even songs for each of those 35 days. (Sing this one to the tune of "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing": "Thin is a many splendored thing! When your hipbones show, your cheeks will glow, and your heart will sing!") There are tidbits of information about meditation, yoga, fruit selection, and digestion. "Reading a Restaurant Menu Through the Eyes of a Born-Again Skinny" is a quick reference list of menu items for figuring out how to order a protein or carbohydrate meal in a restaurant without mixing the two. Mazel also includes pointers on sticking to your diet while attending a party, and interactive pages for you to list daily weight, favorite foods, your "proud sheet," what you hate about being fat, and "what's so great about being thin." ...

5-0 out of 5 stars More good information!
This pocket sized guide is big on ideas. It furthers the ideas from the "New Beverly Hills Diet". Only get it as an addition though. On its own, it doesn't have enough information to take you through the diet. I reccomend it. ... Read more

Book Description

Did you know that the world's favorite snack is popcorn? That what you eat every year could fill about 170 grocery bags? That fewer than half of the world's people use a knife, fork, and spoon? Welcome to the world of "Food Rules!" Cool enough for kids to savor, scientific enough to be an invaluable resource, this is the most comprehensive book on food and nutrition ever created for kids. It's full of mouthwatering stories, jokes, recipes, rumors, and facts, and a supermarket of zany illustrations. Definitely food for thought. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great fun for kids
What a marvelous book. It explains the functions of digestion in a fun way. It has a couple of "fart" and "poop" jokes which are entirely appropriate to a book about food and nutrition, and allows a kid to hear a little "naughty" joke, but the clean kind of naughtiness that a kid can laugh at, instead of the "dirty" jokes that they are probably being exposed to.

5-0 out of 5 stars Haduch rules!
As a kid who likes science and math, I think Haduch rules! I have read several of Mr. Haduch's science books and they are always funny and full of good information. I even used his book on tornadoes for a school project (and got an "A".)The food book is very funny while telling you about science and how your body uses food. I hope he does a book on dinosaurs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Science and nutrition made fun for kids.
Now maybe kids will eat what's good for them!This book is one of the rare kids' books that addresses kids as people to be talked to and entertained....not to be talked down to or preached at. As a mom who has kids interested in science....and off-the-wall humor...I appreciate a book that combines both. Thanks!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of a Kind!
This hilarious and well-researched book is, by far, the best children's book on nutrition I've seen. Haduch's well-crafted prose both instructs and entertains; the book is filled with off-beat facts and wacky humor to keep kids laughing while they learn important health information. Every school and public library should have this book! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Message good, delivery bad
While I would NOT say the book is preachy (except maybe to those who aren't vegetarian), and it did have very good information for children (and adults, frankly) - I was not as happy with the WAY the information was PACKAGED.
I think children like colorful pictures. There was NO color in this book, and while one publisher's comments described the illustrations as "delightful," I would be more inclined to describe them as drab.
I was also surprised when I picked the book up. The cover had me expecting a good sized book, when it is actually an oversized cover with scant few pages between.

I would still recommend this book, as there are so few with its message. I would just want the buyer to know what they're getting.
Another reviewer recommended Herb the Vegetarian Dragon instead. I would suggest buying BOTH! What this book lacked in eye-candy, Herb had in abundance. But, this book is needed to counter the bland delivery of the message found in Herb.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!
Cows Are Vegetarians! A book for vegetarian kids describes in simple terms that children can understand why it is important to be a vegetarian. By explaining how vegetarianism is good for animals, the environment and people, Ann Bradley shows children that being vegetarian is not only acceptable - it's wonderful! (...)

5-0 out of 5 stars Good book for veg kids
My daughter and I enjoyed this book, probably for different reasons. The companion cowsareveg website was enjoyable too. The book carries a serious message but isn't preachy, and I did like the artwork.

5-0 out of 5 stars Really great book for Vegetarian kids
A friend turned me on to this book a while ago and I loved it. It is aimed at kids, but like most great children books, this one speaks to adults as well. If your raising your kids Vegetarian, this is a must have!
