Children from low-income families are most likely to have a poor diet, and school is a key place where the balance can be redressed. Written by a nutritionist, Cool Food is a bright and informative Big Book, suitable for use with eight to nine-year-olds. It deals with much more than the need to eat fruit and vegetables. Other topics covered include nutrients, recipes, energy, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Thre are also pages on food allergies and illnesses. Seven activity sheets encourage children to think critically about their reading and their diet. Cool Food, by Carol Matta, is being distributed by Iceland stores free to primary schools in the UK. Some additional copies are available for other educational organisations. The entire book can also be read at www.coolfood.co.ukFor more information, tel: 01244 842 941.
