Good Enough to Eat Picture Book

For our weekly readings, I keep a basket of books that cover topics like Science, History, Geography, Spanish, and some fun readings like Mr. and Mrs. Green – those are great to give us a mid-morning giggle and work on our comprehension skills, especially for my preschooler and kindergartner. 

Picture Book on Nutrition – Healthy Eating

Alright so going back to the book basket, this week we have been reading Good Enough to Eat: A Kid’s Guide to Food and Nutrition. This is an excellent book with very good information and plenty of pictures and examples all throughout. Since it is so rich in information, we like to read it in parts to really grasp the text. This book is a great extension to my list of 10 ideas on raising healthy eaters 

Just this morning when we were reading, my son (who dislikes tomatoes) was telling me how important it actually is for him to eat tomatoes. In this book we read that “Vitamin C helps my skin heal” and below it shows a box with foods rich in Vitamin C – tomatoes is one of them.

So he was able to read and see the importance of eating tomatoes and why Mami likes to make Ensalada Chilena – Tomato Salad so often at home. 

 Bravo for him! It is so important we read to them about eating healthy and model it at home with very yummy recipes! 

This is one of my favorite pages that has sparked many conversations around the table and throughout the week. We also discuss the terms in Spanish as we go.

I am also really interested in purchasing this Scientist Kid Young Scientist Series – Set 6: Flight (Kit 16) – Heart and Lungs (Kit 17) – Digestive System (Kit 18) from Amazon to expand our reading on the digestive system. This one has some really good reviews.
