Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-Rather than preach about good nutrition, these books offer visually appealing, conversational, and practical takes on healthy eating in a variety of settings. They address smart choices in the school cafeteria, convenience stores, restaurants, and fast-food joints, as well as eating for optimum sports and academic performance. The authors arm teens with good information on the physical and mental impact of healthy food, calorie intake, body-mass index, portion sizes, and reading labels. They also advocate a "healthy eating is a lifelong process" approach, encouraging right decisions while acknowledging that temptations exist. Readers can come to this set with little prior knowledge. The volumes are slim, but the large pages contain user-friendly graphics, text boxes, and color photos that pop. Appetizing presentations with sustenance. α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal.

From Booklist

This entry in the Understanding Nutrition: A Gateway to Physical & Mental Health series isn’t about, say, how to interact with waiters or pay your bill. Rather, it focuses on health by encouraging mindful eaters to “enjoy the adventure of eating out.” Etingoff suggests meal plans for fast-food establishments, carryout places, buffets, and sit-down restaurants, offering advice such as ordering vegetables, fruits, and whole grains whenever possible, cutting out sodas and desserts, and paying close attention to portion size. Nutrients are also discussed, explaining the ways in which food connects to the vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, and fats the body needs. This holistic approach reminds readers that they needn’t turn to fad dieting to lose weight. This no-nonsense, informative offering is the perfect appetizer for readers interested in heartier fare, like Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma (2009). Grades 5-8. --Courtney Jones
