The Dairy Council of California has redesigned its second-grade nutrition education program, "Healthy Choices, Healthy Me," to include a storybook to help children explore the agriculturaly origins of food and healthy eating. Titled "The Market Mystery," the storybook is designed to be read by the teacher and follows a brother and sister who join a neighborhood grocer to solve the mystery of why food has not been delivered to the store.
