Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


Nutrition for a Changing World engages students like no other nutrition textbook.  Real stories – about real people and real science – are integrated into every chapter, bringing context and relevance to the core science. Infographics in the style of Scientific American magazine are like “science storyboards” that guide students step-by-step through essential processes and concepts.  Coverage of timely topics such as gluten-free diets, the diabetes epidemic, and global nutrition exemplify the book’s contemporary approach to nutrition science.

Nutrition for Changing World is also the only product for the course to offer automatically graded diet analysis activities. AnalyzeMyDiet provides both a diet tracker and personalized, auto-graded diet analysis activities built to cover a standard 3- to 7-day diet analysis assignment, freeing instructors from hand-grading these projects.
