(120 pages, 2010)
The book takes over where the movie left off, focusing on the positive solutions characters in the movie have taken to improve their health and/or the health of their children. The author/filmmaker Catherine Gund covers important issues such as neighborhood access to healthy food, school lunch reform, and the importance of supporting small, local farms -- in a fun, engaging way, without being preachy. The book is filled with food-related games and activities as well as healthy kid-friendly recipes. For instance, one activity is entitled "Cafeteria Snoops: What's Happening in Your School's Dining Room?" and suggests you profile someone who works in your school's dining room. The book provides the perfect bridge between classroom and home.
