Synopsis

Food: 25 Amazing Projects by

Giving new meaning to the phrase food for thought, this revealing activity guide summarizes the history, science, and culture of what kids eat day after day. Presenting a fascinating array of projects and activities, this exploration demonstrates how certain foods evolved as well as how modern technology plays a part in food production, packaging, and delivery. From the methods vegetarians use to balance their diets to why some cultures rose and fell based on a single food source, this fun-filled investigation also illustrates the traditional route from farm to table, the impact of eating locally grown foods, the importance of nutrition, and even the role of food in ancient times. Going beyond the basics of the food pyramid, this comprehensive examination encourages children to understand their daily diets from both a local and global perspective.

Reviews

The information presented and questions posed on food packaging, mega-farming, locally grown vs. commercially grown foods, free-range grazing, and healthy food choices make this a particularly up-to-date survey. This soup-to-nuts look at the business and consumption of food will make a good addition to most collections. School Library Journal

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
