Overview

Nutrition for Life demonstrates how nutrition relates to your life through hands-on activities, personal self-assessments, and real life examples. Using a series of investigations that correspond to concepts in the main text, the Study Guide will help you get the best grade possible with questions and exercises that include definitions, fill-in-the-blank, labeling, completion questions, and critical thinking questions.

Support your learning and retention with these powerful review exercises and activities: Investigations turn the main topics from each chapter of the textbook into questions to guide your study of the major themes. Terminology sections help you review key terms from the book. Text Outline Summaries clearly organize chapter content so you can easily tell how concepts relate. Study Questions cover the major topics in each chapter. Completion Exercises allow you to fill-in tables or figures for improved understanding of the chapter content. Critical Thinking questions help you apply everything you've learned to "bigger picture" questions that often relate the content back to your personal nutrition experiences.
