Product Description:

Learn what your body needs to be healthy and then prepare these delicious recipes to please not only those parts, but your taste buds too! This cookbook teaches children about the nutrients needed by individual parts of the human body as well as keeping the body as a whole healthy. After getting acquainted with the kitchen through the cooking tips and safety rules on tools, terms, and appliances at the beginning of the book, children are ready to start meeting the cravings of their body. The rest of the book is divided into two sections. In the first, chapters focus on separate body parts or systems such as the heart, blood, muscles, bones, teeth, nerves, digestive system, and hair, teeth and nails. Each of these pieces of the body requires different nutrients and vitamins to stay in good shape. Each chapter in this section begins with an explanation of that body part, discussing the features of the part including how it works and what it needs to work well. Following this interesting introduction is a fun activity or experiment that further explores that amazing body part. The rest of each chapter holds 4-6 scrumptious recipes containing the nutrients important for that part of the body. The recipes, marked from 1-3 based on difficulty, list the time and tools needed for preparation in addition to the needed ingredients and clear directions. The chapters in part two follow the same format but focus on the body as a whole, concentrating on the food pyramid, energy and exercising, maintaining a healthy weight, and fruits and vegetables. Again, each of these sections holds an informative description, fun exercise, and easy, tasty recipes. Appendices hold the nutrient content of the recipes, a guide to food labels, and tips on what is safe to eat. 184 pgs. ~ Steph
