Summary

For introductory Nutrition courses for Non-Majors.

 

Give students the tools to separate nutrition fact from fiction

Nutrition & You provides students with a personalized approach to understanding nutrition, teaching them to become informed consumers of nutrition information. Joan Salge Blake is known for her engaging writing style, where she  addresses students directly, uses clear visuals to explain concepts, and captivates students with humor. Blake encourages students to think critically and relate the science of nutrition to their own dietary habits, enabling them to separate fact from fiction and to distinguish high-quality nutrient sources from those of lesser quality.

 

The 5th Edition includes the latest scientific research and updated coverage of hot topics such as the microbiome and food waste to engage students and encourage behavior change. Updated Practical Nutrition Tips videos feature Blake walking students through making better eating choices in their everyday lives, and updated NutriTool Activities help students apply nutrition concepts to improve their health–both available in Mastering Nutrition. Additionally, instructors can assign autogradable MyDietAnalysis (MDA) Personalized Dietary Analysis activities.

It lets students highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place, even when offline. Seamlessly integrated videos and other rich media engage students and give them access to the help they need, when they need it. Educators can easily share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their eText and what they learn in class – motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning.
