Nutrition concepts applied to our daily lives

Nutrition: An Applied Approach introduces non¿-majors to nutrition with an innovative format that promotes long-term learning without rote memorization. Key focus areas include: functions of vitamins and minerals in the body, fluid and electrolyte balance, antioxidant function, bone health, energy metabolism, and blood health. The 5th Edition shows how nutrition concepts apply to our daily lives with new chapters on food equity, sustainability, and obesity. A new suite of ABC News Videos and Focus Figures explore nutrition, human disease, and nutrients found in food. To engage students and help them learn, understand, and retain even the most difficult concepts, each chapter now includes Learning Outcomes and a new study plan that connects to MasteringNutrition reading quizzes and exercises.
