It's time to celebrate with the five basic food groups. The mayor of Food Town introduces each food group as they march in the town parade, from the vegetables, fruits, and legumes, to the grains and fats. Kids learn about the importance of all the food groups and how our bodies benefit from each. There is also helpful information on portion size and exercise along with both illustrations of the Food Pyramid and the newly introduced food plate.

Award-winning illustrator and author Elicia Castaldi was born in Providence, Rhode Island and has loved making art since for as long as she can remember. After graduating from Rhode Island School of Design, she spent nearly a decade in New York City. She now splits her time between New York and Los Angeles. Elicia's books include Eighth Grade is Making Me Sick and Middle School is Worse than Meatloaf, both written by Jennifer L. Holm, and Miss Polly has a Dolly. Elicia's artwork has been praised as having a "quirky profoundness," and she never goes a day without being inspired.
