Summary

Access to safe, adequate, and nutritionally-balanced food is a cornerstone of public health. This book examines the influences of grassroots movements, the government, and industry on the U.S. food systems. It discusses efforts to prevent and treat chronic diet-related conditions, such as obesity, and the emergence of trends, food policies, and legislation. The author addresses such topics as food markets, sustainable agriculture, peanut-free schools, dietary guidelines and dietary allowances, food labeling, food safety, and school wellness. Containing profiles of notable contributors to the field, the text also explores themes of government action versus individual liberty.
