About the book

  

Emphasize real-life applications

  • Nutrition Myth or Fact, You Do the Math, and Nutrition Label Activity features encourage critical thinking and out¿-of-¿the box applications.
  • Nutri¿Case case studies help students apply the learning to everyday life. Found in each chapter and In Depth feature, a NutriCase features one of five distinct characters who appear throughout the book.
  • What About You? self¿-assessment features include checklists, questionnaires, and other treatments that present brief, targeted activities emphasizing active learning and applied thinking skills.
  • Quick Tips provide helpful suggestions for incorporating better nutrition into daily life in a succinct list format. Examples include shopping advice, cooking suggestions, food preparation tips, eating out ideas, exercise-¿related topics, and other creative ways to apply what readers have learned.
  • Eating Right All Day visually highlights tasty suggestions students can use to improve their daily meals. The breakfast/lunch/dinner/snack format features appealing examples of satisfying everyday meals that are also good sources of nutrients.

Nutrition concepts applied to students’ daily lives

  • NEW! In Depth Chapters: Obesity, Malnutrition, and Healthful Eating Patterns are three new mini-chapters that focus on topics such as the health and societal problems surrounding undernourishment; the effectiveness of lifestyle changes, medications, dietary supplements, and surgery in obesity treatment; and the components and principles of a healthful eating pattern.
  • NEW! Chapter 13: Food Equity, Sustainability, and Quality: The Challenge of “Good” Food is a new chapter that focuses on current issues of food quality and availability that directly affect today’s students. Topics include the disparities in availability of high-quality, nourishing food thought to contribute to the poverty-obesity paradox, unsafe working conditions in many US farms and factories, and more.
  • NEW! 6 Focus Figures on topics such as nutrition and human disease, the scientific method, the new nutrition facts panel, and more; and 8 new Meal Focus Figures have been added that graphically depict the differences in sets of meals, such as a comparison of nutrient density or a comparison of two high-carbohydrate meals, to engage students with relevant and practical information, and much more.

 

Help students visualize and understand the toughest topics

  • UPDATED! To better streamline coverage of micronutrients, four former chapters (7 to 10 in the 4th edition) now become three (7 to 9 in the 5th edition) to help students better comprehend the role of vitamins and minerals in fluid and electrolyte balance (Chapter 7); key body functions (energy metabolism, antioxidant functions, and vision - Chapter 8); and healthy body tissues (collagen, blood, and bone - Chapter 9).
  • NEW! Learning Outcomes Approach creates a clear learning path for students with numbered learning outcomes at the beginning of each chapter. These outcomes are tied to each major chapter section, helping students navigate each chapter and measure their progress against specific learning goals and helping instructors assess the key information and skills students are meant to take away from each chapter.
  • UPDATED! and EXPANDED! Learning Objectives are included for each chapter and have been added to the In Depth mini¿-chapters.
  • NEW! Study Plans conclude each chapter, tying the chapter learning outcomes to the review and math questions, and also include the Test Yourself true/false answers and web resources.
  • NEW! Critical Thinking Questions follow the Nutrition Debates and “Nutrition: Myth or Fact” features to encourage deeper analysis of the learning content.
  • UPDATED! Hot Topics give brief snapshots of current topics. They shine a light on topical issues and offer a succinct alternative to the more in¿-depth coverage of nutritional controversies featured in our popular Nutrition Debate feature.
  • EXPANDED! Chapter and topic coverage including Functional Foods, Nutrients Involved in Energy Metabolism and Blood Health, and Food Safety and Technology.
