I wrote "Food Rules!" to give kids a good, solid, early understanding of how food and nutrition really work so they can fend off a lifetime of nutritional quackery and fads and mixed messages about eating. And I wrote it in a style that inspires raucous laughter and knee-slapping in my own middle-school-aged son and daughter. It seemed like an obvious book to write, but reader after reader tells me they've never seen anything like it. I think they mean that in a good way.From the Inside Flap:
It's The Book That Turns The Food Pyramid Upside Down!
"Food Rules!" is the most comprehensive book on food and nutrition ever created for kids -- and the most entertaining. Diets may come and go, but there will always be certain things everyone should know about eating: What food does once we swallow it, how hunger really works, why sumo wrestlers are so big. "Food Rules!" explains it all, with enough wacky and startling facts, jokes, and rumors to keep kids, parents and teachers laughing and learning, learning and laughing.
You'll read about vitamins, of course. But this is no health department pamphlet. You'll also learn about the weird things sports heroes eat; about gross, smelly foods; the horrors of digestion; foods that seem bizarre but aren't; unthinkable foods of the future; how to outlive a camel in the desert; tricks used in food ads; how to read a nutritional label without going blind; and much, much more. There are even some recipes to get you started. Simply put, no one should ever eat anything without first reading "Food Rules!"
Inspired by a passion for food and goofball humor, science writer Bill Haduch weaves his completely up-to-date nutritional research and insights through a supermarket of zany illustrations by Rick Stromoski. Their goal: Better eating through laughter. Ooh -- sounds messy.
