Taste for learning

3rd September 2004 at 01:00
Eighteen children's favourites from apple juice to yoghurt, via chips, ice cream, pizza and tomatoes, find a place in the friendly and informative A Basic Encyclopaedia of Food. Aimed at confident KS2 readers, it begins with basic facts about food groups and types of nutrients. Each item then gets its own page, with advice on preparation and cooking backed up by a "healthy eating meter" that shows at a glance whether what tastes nice is also good for you. An adults' version adds a set of activities in literacy and science. A Basic Encyclopaedia of Food by Ester Davies costs pound;6 from Neate Publishing. The adults' edition is pound;8.50 www.neatepublishing.co.uk
