This is the fifth Lulu book, in which our heroine gets to grips with all things edible. As usual, the bright, colourful pages are packed with things to see and do, from helping Lulu fasten her bib, to finding out just how sticky the honey on top of her yoghurt is. There’s no overt ‘healthy options’ message here – yes, fruit and veg are slipped in easily alongside the pizza, fish fingers and cakes, but this isn’t a worthy attempt to educate children about the importance of optimum nutrition, it’s a joyful look at just how much fun food can be to prepare, to touch and, of course, to taste. Share it with your fussy, messy, reluctant and enthusiastic eaters alike – thanks to solid production values, it should be sturdy enough to be enjoyed for years.
