Good food is nutritious—but best of all, it's delicious!
Full of colorful photographs of kids growing, preparing, and eating healthy, wholesome meals, Yummy! inspires young readers to make healthy choices.  Nutritious meals full of fresh produce, protein, dairy and grains are pictured, along with kids helping in the kitchen—and having a good time eating what they've made, too!
Healthy food choices set kids on the right track to succeed, giving them the energy to get out and play.  Aligned with USDA's MyPlate standard for nutrition, Yummy! also offers tips for parents on preparing healthy meals, substituting in nutritious ingredients for high-sugar treats, and getting kids involved in their food choices.
