Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Alison Johansen
The word “diet” is thrown around these days a lot as people in our society try to become healthier, lose weight, and live longer. Sorting through all of the information and misinformation on the Internet and keeping abreast of the latest fads advertised in magazines and on blogs can be overwhelming. As part of a series entitled “Understanding Nutrition: A Gateway to Physical & Mental Health,” Etingoff offers a thoughtful and comprehensive look into breaking down all of these diet myths and navigating how we all can take a healthier approach to eating. To start, Dr. Joshua Borus, with Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, provides a helpful introduction that focuses on the primary factors taken into account when making good decisions for healthy eating. The text then highlights the important differences between good diets and dieting by discussing and deconstructing fad diets, vegetarianism, and what eating healthy really means. She covers everything from calories, nutrients, vitamins and minerals to how one sip of soda can impact our health. At the end of the book readers will find online resources, books and an index. Reviewer: Alison Johansen; Ages 8 up.
