Take a ride on Chew Chew the Food Chain Train. Made entirely of fruits and vegetables, she loves to teach children to love good food while improving their health. Come along and see her special restaurant where the buffet comes to the tables. All aboard! This book would be suitable for Kindle Free Time users, home schools, and classrooms. It is recommended for ages 3-8. This is not a book about food groups or a balanced diet. The focus is teaching clean eating of whole foods as an approach to better health and the prevention of chronic disease. The goal is to introduce the concept of food as medicine. This book is designed to be read by an adult and child together in order to facilitate discussion of food choices. Future books will address other aspects of the food we eat such as considerations when planting a garden. Chew Chew will discuss making organic compost, the use of pesticides, herbicides, preservatives, chemical fertilizers, and the use of GMOs. Chew Chew wants children to learn how to choose healthy foods, and to have a general understanding of what happens to food from its beginning to the time it reaches their plates. Resources on past approaches to children's nutrition are not referenced because this is not a book about nutrition. It is a book about the nature of the food we eat. The best explanations of this approach can be found in two books: "The Ultra Mind Solution" by Mark Hyman and "The Wellness Prevention Paradigm." by James Chestnut. This is a new approach to food, and persons looking for the old paradigm of food groups will not find it here.
