Coupled with reduced physical education in schools, this has led to the first generation of kids in American history that may have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. With childhood obesity rates in the U.S. currently hovering around 17%, it is more important than ever for kids to be informed about the foods they eat. This indispensable series explains in age-appropriate and easy to understand terms exactly where our convenience foods come from and the importance of enjoying them in moderation. Sidebars and their accompanying images delve deeper with fun facts and further scientific explanations. Vibrant photographs throughout help children visualize the process of how these foods are made, while clear and engrossing text gives them the information they need to make better choices about the foods they choose to eat.
