    Understanding and applying nutrition to everyday life

     

    The Fourth Edition of Nutrition for Life, MasteringNutrition Edition gives students the tools they need to effectively learn and master nutrition concepts and apply them to their daily lives. This visually rich text is packed with information and exercises to help students understand how the food they eat affects their bodies. Students will learn about essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and the chemical organization of micronutrients, while staying engaged with the material through self-assessments, case studies, and study aids. Nutrition for Life organizes information according to how nutrients function in the body, rather than by chemical classification, allowing students to more easily apply their knowledge to everyday situations. This new edition features new Meal Focus Figures, new Focus Figures to illustrate key concepts, and student learning outcomes listed in every chapter and correlated to the end of chapter Study Plan..

     

    Now included with Nutrition for Life , MasteringNutritionTM is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment product designed to improve results by helping students quickly master concepts. Students benefit from self-paced tutorials that feature immediate wrong-answer feedback and hints that emulate the office-hour experience to help keep students on track and prepared for lecture.
