    This product is tons of fun. All 33 pieces of the set are stored in a wooden box with a durable plastic cover. Basically, the set includes a mini wooden cutting board, a wooden cutting knife, and eight wooden pieces of food. These colorful food items are pre-sliced into 2-5 pieces and re-attached by hook-and-loop fasteners. Children can take a piece of food, place it on cutting board, and cut through the fastened pieces like they are cutting through real food. The fastener provides the perfect amount of resistance to make it actually feel like you are cutting the food. Cutting a loaf of bread, watermelon slice, carrot, and other items will give children practice and make them feel grown up, and it will provide them with hours of fun and play. I've got to tell you that this product was a big hit in the Rainbow office and I personally recommend it. (Just be sure to not let your kids catch you playing with the set yourself.)

    Often teens opt for the most convenient way to satisfy their hunger, which doesn't always mean the most nutritious way. This recipe book provides another alternative by using mostly fresh foods. The idea is to stay away from processed food and aspire to eat healthier. This book begins with an introduction explaining why you should eat fresh food and where to find it, along with the type of pans and utensils you will need to prepare your food. There are easy-to-follow recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, along with desserts and drinks. Additionally, it allows you to experiment with a variety of foods, making fruits and vegetables the chief ingredient in the majority of the recipes. Most ingredients will be easy to find with only a few exceptions. In the back are several menus using some recipes in the book that relate to holidays and the seasons. 160 pgs, pb. ~ Gina

    Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is becoming more and more difficult as the convenience and availability of processed and fast food continue to encourage the trend towards unhealthy eating. Factor in the early age at which children are exposed to the many temptations of unhealthy junk food, and the problem multiplies. This book is packed full of good, quality information to answer all the major questions kids (and adults) have about food, such as "What is junk food?" "What makes me eat it?" "What if I eat too much?" "Why bother with breakfast?" "Why do I need variety?" "What's a healthy weight?" and much, much more. Utilizing the typical format Usborne books are known for, the colorful illustrations and easy to read text highlights the many benefits of incorporating healthier eating habits. 48 pgs., sc. - Enh

    This book is more than just recipes – it's an educational experience with the science and history of food - 124 pages of recipes, vocabulary, projects, and facts. Do a short unit study on food or use this book to supplement your curriculum – you will learn things about food that you never knew before. The content of the book is divided into categories and each includes information (history and facts) on a particular topic, vocabulary, and projects. For example, in the section titled 'Food & Cultures' learn about staple foods for different countries. Rice plays an important role in the Asian culture. A person in Asia eats about 300 pounds of rice every year, while the average American eats only about 25 pounds of rice. Potatoes came originally from South America but were introduced to Ireland and became a staple food for them. A disease called 'potato blight' affected the crops and caused "The Great Famine." The population of Ireland dropped by half through death and migration. Maize (corn) is a staple food for Africa and is often flavored with yams, cabbage, or turnips. The United States is so diverse that what we eat may be affected by the area in which we live, but we usually can't name one food on which we are dependent. Immigrants affect local cuisine which is why you might find certain ethnic foods within a certain area, and there have been times in our history when certain foods have been rationed. Projects to accompany these topics are making a potato maze using a shoebox, making a 'ration cake' which is eggless and milkless, and making an African cornmeal cookie called a 'Gali Akpono.' Food safety, nutrition, packaging, conservation and much more are covered in the pages of this book. Although educational, this would be one of those 'just fun to do' units. It might be a good study for summer, for a co-op, or something to just do as extra for a few weeks during the school year. After reading this book, I sure want to go home and try some of the unusual foods (but not the bugs!). ~ Donna

    Rather than simply telling kids how they should exercise and what they should eat, this attractive little journal offers them space to record how well they've eaten, and how much they've exercised during the week, with some cute little "extras" besides. The journal includes 52 weeks of journal pages, to last for a whole year. Each week is given a two-page spread. On the left-hand page, you'll find short lists of recommended activities, healthy snacks, and a tip or two about how to eat healthier or how to make active exercise more fun. The right-hand page contains the journal part, and includes a physical activity log, divided by day of the week. Kids are encouraged to write down their "active" achievements for the day, even if some days they are not as ambitious. The bottom of the page features a fill-in-the-grid "time tracker", where they can fill in a square for every ten minutes of exercise completed that day; a "healthy food 9-square," where they can draw a happy face or place a sticker into a square for each healthy food eaten that week; and a "writer & artist corner" where they can sketch or jot down a thought about exercise or healthy eating for the week. The journal itself is good-quality, with thick pages and full-color lively illustrations of active kids and healthy snacks sprinkled throughout. Designed by the founding editor of kidsrunning.com, the journal is full of tried and true tips and helpful advice from someone with a solid health and nutrition background. Also, it's often recommended that recording activities and accomplishments is very helpful for people trying to reach specific goals, and this is particularly true for reaching fitness goals. If your family is making an effort to be more active and to eat more healthily, these journals would be an excellent tool for the kids to track their progress. - Jess
