Nutrition & Wellness is designed for foods and nutrition courses in grades 8-10. It can be targeted in several ways: for courses that emphasize nutrition and fitness; for foods and nutrition courses that place less emphasis on food preparation than traditional foods courses; or for an introductory high school foods course in a two-course sequence. It should be noted food preparation is thoroughly covered in the special Food Preparation Handbook at the back of the book. Many teachers find Nutrition & Wellness appealing for traditional foods and nutrition courses as well, because of its upbeat, student-friendly approach and its high-impact visual design. The text's positive approach emphasizes enjoyment of food and physical activity. Nutrition information is geared toward teens.
