Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Chapters divided into short sections and information boxes introduce different aspects of healthy eating and food production. The simple text is choppy, jumping from subject to subject, and information is repeated from volume to volume. The plentiful photos occasionally do not reflect the healthy food choices recommended in the books. Several recipes are appended. Reading list, websites. Glos., ind. [Review covers these Making Healthy Food Choices titles: [cf2]Food for Feeling Healthy[cf1], [cf2]Special Diets and Food Allergies[cf1], [cf2]Do You Know What's In Your Food?[cf1], [cf2]Do You Know Where Your Food Comes From?[cf1], and [cf2]Food for Sports[cf1].] Copyright 2007 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Gr 6–9— These volumes provide brief overviews of a variety of related topics. Ballard incorporates the new food pyramid into a discussion of basic nutritional requirements. She considers obesity, malnutrition, and eating disorders and comments on various factors that influence eating choices, such as advertising and peer pressure. After helping readers decipher food labels, she provides a week's worth of menus. Morris concentrates on food production and includes charts that show which countries lead in producing different commodities. He discusses agricultural practices, transportation issues, and marketing strategies. Both books incorporate numerous text boxes and photos and provide suggestions for relevant books and Web sites. The writing style, format, and structure mark the volumes as sources for reports. Libraries that need to update resources on nutrition, particularly with information on the new food pyramid introduced in 2005, should consider adding one or both titles.—Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
