The Snack Food Genie tempts Jesse with all that is yummy and oh so craveable, but Jesse begins to make connections between the food the Genie wants him to eat and how that food often makes him feel. As the Genie shows up everywhere and to everyone, Jesse decides to fight back.
The author combines years of experience fighting hunger as a food bank CEO with an MFA in writing for young children to craft a story of how children and adults are affected and influenced by the way food is marketed and sold. Jesse's story also addresses the ways food can fuel our bodies and change our mood.
A section at the back of the book provides additional information on snack food, advice for listening to body cues, and recipes to try.
