Science and food, the two are intermixed. This colourful exploration (the first of two volumes) probes the magic behind what we eat, while teaching young readers about the components and properties of our basic nutrients. Many of us pay very little attention to what we consume. This book will correct that oversight, while giving its readers a healthy respect for food components, and their value.
