Reviews for Eat Right : Your Guide to Maintaining a Healthy Diet


School Library Journal Reviews 2011 November

Gr 3-5--This series takes a well-rounded approach to keeping fit, going beyond staying active and eating right to include emotional and mental health. The diet and exercise components are strong. Eat Right discusses the USDA dietary guidelines and provides explanations of serving sizes and kid-friendly ways to consume them; Stay Fit reminds readers to incorporate 60 minutes of heart-pumping play into their day and suggests that they do so before turning on the TV. Good Choices is dedicated to making smart appraisals and is particularly helpful in encouraging readers to make the right choice-complete with an instructional chart on decision making-even if it's not the easiest one. Finally, Stress offers sound insight into dealing with day-to-day dilemmas. The high-quality advice, magazinelike layout, and bright color photographs put these titles ahead of the pack.
