An amazing and captivating book aimed at children with information they can understand and relate to.
Miss 7.5 is going through a phase of telling us what it healthy and what isn't. her concept on it is not as accurate as she thought! the book (For juniors) is very helpful in providing her with accurate information that she is able to sit, read and take in. She is now looking at the back of labels and comparing them to the card that is with the book and having a more informed grasp on what really is healthy and what isn't.
I am looking forward to sitting with her and her younger brother and discussing the topics more which are outlined in the book.

My three grandchildren were quite curious the first read. They had not considered that ANYONE would deliberately mess with our food. It was the start of an avalanche of questions . not just about why some foods are better for us and why some are best for 'special occasions' only, but also what can kids do so that the 'naughty people' who sell bad food don't get them to eat it.
I have printed off 3 extra Additive Numbers Cards, one for each of them and for the first time shopping is fun. I don't have any arguments or whinging, rather they are checking the product labels as we shop and telling me what to buy or not buy. BARGAIN! This has also led to more interest in meals at home and what to take to school.
I feel so proud of them and tell them so each time we shop as now most of our shopping is around the outside aisles where the fresh foods are. They love that they can catch out the 'bad guys'. It has become a game where they quite like to challenge each other to see which manufacturer is fibbing about how healthy they say their food is.
A note: This doesn't in any way detract from the book's merit but I found a typo that the author might want to correct next printing round. page 31 in Colds and flu - in the explanatory sentence flu is misspelt flue.
A great little book and one that the kids keep coming back to find answers from. Well done to Tegan Benfell. The content is thorough and easy for kids to understand.

Thank you to the Lifestyle Food team for allowing me (and the kids) to review this product. We sat down on the couch and read this book, a very fascinating, beneficial and informative read. I think it is very important we keep children notified on this issue. Tegan Benfell has done a wonderful job in relaying the information across in an interesting and fun way, which had the littlies really involved. Her hubby did a great job with the pics too. I loved the extra bookmark, that will definitely be coming along on our future shopping trips too.

What a surprise to open up the book and see what a great job was done on everything the attention on the graphis and information is great.
Well i was just as thrilled to read this to the kids as they were to listen to me and look at the great art work.

This book is fantastic! It opens kids up to the idea that food can contain some nasty stuff, yet introduces the healthy stuff - omega 3, antioxidants, calcium, probiotics, water and the idea of a well rounded diet in a fun and informative way.

The book is colourful which appeals to children and the use of different fonts and different coloured fonts throughout the book keeps children entertained while reading.

I read this book with my 6 year old nephew (actually he read the book to me!) and also my niece and nephew (both four years old). They all asked additional questions throughout the time we spent reading the book which opened up a great conversation on food that should only be eaten sometimes (for a treat) and why it is important to eat food in it's natural state without all the additives and preservatives. They all loved shopping with me and looking at the labels and using the bookmark to compare the numbers and then proudly pronounced which products we should put back on the shelf!

The glossary of terms in the back of the book for children to become familiar with was very helpful as was the recommended reading list.

This book is such an excellent educational tool and the fact it is presented in a way that engages children and keeps them interested while learning gives this my vote of 5 stars!

I read this book with interest and I thought it was excellent. A wonderful way to teach kids all about the food they eat. I learned a lot of things that i didn't know before. The book is very comprehensive and good for all the family. I recommend it to everybody who wants to know about our food and where it comes from.

I have a grandson who has severe ADHA and this book has been very educational. I sat and read it with him and he asked lots of positive questions. I gave the book to his mum and we are going to change his diet to give him the best chance at dealing with his ADHD.

Loved the concept, and the illustrations. My little one is a little young for the message, but I think it would be a really effective tool when he gets a little older to help him to understand the reasons behind our food choices. The book mark with the additive numbers is already useful though!

"What's really in my food- for juniors".
A very easy read. Good use of colour and imagery to help children in better understanding content. Great use of different fonts to emphasise key points.

My six year old, had difficulty in sitting through the entire book in one go. We had to read it over a few nights.

This book was packed full of important information for children and adults.
It is a great book for parents and children to read together then discuss their own eating habits and find ways to improve.
The font made it interesting and easy to read.
Beginning the book with the "nasties" and concluding with the "good foods" was a smooth and positive way to read the book.
Some illustrations were a little too mature for the preschool age I read to.
We will keep this on the family book shelf and refer back to it!

I read the what's really in my food for juniors to my children and they enjoyed it liked learning about all the subjects covered in the book but I found that the illustrations did not gel well the story being told I felt like there should have been more examples of the food that was being talked about .The positive is that after reading the book the kids were trying to make better choices when it came to what food they wanted to eat and snack on .

Easy to read with good use of different font sizes and colours to emphasise key information.
Need top read to younger children in a couple of sessions. Too much for one read.

The book was good to read with the kids but they didn't really understand it so I had to explain it as best I could :) Would be great if there was a list of healthy options that they could relate to when we go shopping.
