The Healthy Body Cookbook is a delightfully clever smorgasbord of hands-on lessons about the crucial role that diet and exercise play in the development of heart, blood, bones, muscles, skin, teeth, and the nervous and digestive systems. Kids learn about the nutrients that are important for each system of the body, and make delicious recipes emphasizing those nutrients.
