This book aims to develop children's understanding of nutrition and where their food comes from. Exploring a major food group, it explains how grains and cereals are produced and how they can be stored and prepared. It aids the teaching of Design and technology at Early Years and Key Stage 1, whilst also developing communication and literacy skills in young readers. Children are introduced to the basic principles of a healthy and varied diet so they are better able to prepare dishes themselves.
