Summary

Summary

Learning about health and science has never been so fun --and delicious!

What does a heartbeat sound like? How strong is my hair? Why do my eyes blink? What′s in a sports drink? With more than 50 safe and easy recipes and activities to try, you′ll discover the nutritious answers to these and tons of other scrumptious mysteries. And best of all, you get to eat the results when you′re finished! You′ll make carbohydrate-packed Blueberry Power-Snack Turnovers, protein-boosting Crunchy Chicken Fingers, calcium-rich Creamy, Dreamy Yogurt Orange-Banana Frozen Pops, and much more.

The Healthy Body Cookbook is a delightfully clever smorgasbord of hands-on lessons about the crucial role that diet and exercise play in the development of heart, blood, bones, muscles, skin, teeth, and the nervous and digestive systems. All activities are kid-tested and require only common ingredients and kitchen utensils. There′s also a helpful list of safety rules, an explanation of tools and skills, and nutritional values for each recipe.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6‘This book of 56 healthy recipes is arranged according to parts of the human body they benefit: heart, blood, muscles, bones, teeth, skin, hair, nails, nerves, and digestive system. For each one, there is a description, an activity or experiment, and some recipes. The clearly described activities and information provide a structure for the book; however, the main focus is nutrition and healthy cooking. In addition to the standard cooking skills and safety rules, there are three helpful appendixes: "Nutrient Content of Recipes," "How to Read a Food Label," and "What's Safe to Eat." Later chapters include information on the food guide pyramid, exercise, weight control, and proper eating habits. The line drawings are helpful and the writing is informal but straightforward. The recipes are clear, thoroughly explained, and tasty; level of difficulty is indicated by number of chef's hats. Important information related in an encouraging way.‘Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME (c) Copyright 2010.
