Food for Today is a comprehensive lab-based foods and nutrition program for high school students. It is correlated to the National Standards for Family & Consumer Sciences. Students learn how to make healthy and nutritious food decisions reflecting the most current nutritional guidelines, how to plan meals safely, how to prepare food, how to appreciate food diversity, how science and technology impact foods and nutrition, and about career opportunities in the area of foods and nutrition.
Eight new chapters on global foods in Unit Ten feature the diversity of food. A true geographic framework provides a strong link with social studies. The supplementary booklet, A World Atlas of Food, further highlights cultural factors, customs, and recipes from the regions of the world.
