Helping students become better informed consumers, particularly in relation to food and nutrition, is the foundation of Nutrition for Healthy Living. Students will not only learn the basic principles of nutrition; they will learn to critically evaluate various sources of nutritional information and to apply sound practices to improve their diet and health. This distinct consumer focus flows throughout the textbook by providing students with practical information, critical thinking skills, and the scientific foundation needed to make informed nutritional lifestyle choices well beyond the classroom.

Connect - Your Study and Testing Program with e-book - is included with each new copy of the text. For more information, go to
