The Hunger Heroes: Missed Meal Mayhem

Lerner, J.
Young Jason skips breakfast and faces the consequences of poor nutrition, including low energy and not being able to think clearly when he has to take a test. Four Hunger Heros – a chip, a bean, a tomato, and a piece of cheese – swoop in to help and feed Jason, despite a teacher who won’t allow eating in her classroom. This entertaining graphic novel, with its vivid illustrations, focuses on the importance of proper nutrition and health and can be used to discuss choices and outcomes and can be applied to other learning outcomes, including social interactions, acts of kindness, and working as a group.
