So the kids are sad to hear that this weekend is going to be sugar free. It turns out that cousin Tito is at risk of developing diabetes like his abuela and Tio Pedro. Tia Sofia tells them that on Saturday "we're going on a sugar hunt." The kids are confused, but she explains that they are going to find all of the sugar especially hidden sugar in their food.
The next morning, their oatmeal doesn't have any added sugar, but each bowl has plump raisins and a naturally sweet surprise: strawberries, banana, peaches, peanut butter or cinnamon and vanilla. One taste and they scoop their bowls clean. At lunch, the sugar hunt continues. The kids learn that much of the food they eat without thinking contains sugar, like the catsup, mayonnaise and relish they usually put on their burgers. So, instead, they paint their hamburger buns yellow with mustard, pile on slices of fresh tomatoes from their aunt's garden, and bite into crunchy dill pickles.
When their parents pick them up at the end of the day, they're all thrilled to see Tia Sofia holding a plate with a delicious surprise to take home: apple empanadas ... cooked without sugar, of course! In this bilingual picture book for children ages 7-10, cousins share time with family and learn fun and delicious ways to eat less sugar.
