Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This entry in the "Nutrition and Fitness" series will appeal to middle schoolers and teenagers who want to learn about keeping fit and staying in shape. This book begins with what is healthy weight, a chart for determining your body mass index and how to interpret this, and nutritional needs to maintain a healthy body. Format is varied and includes captioned pictures, diagrams, bulleted points to consider and somewhat sappy real-life anecdotes about "Allan, Age 17" or "Nico, Age 14." Weight loss facts and misinformation cover fads, yo-yoing weights, drugs and other pitfalls. General topics such as getting exercise, maintaining a food record to see what you are actually consuming and how it suits nutritional needs, and other activities help readers get a handle on weight. Frequent "Points to Consider" provide browsers with enticement to read backwards to see what they've missed. Endmatter includes related readings, Internet sites and addresses to write to, plus an index and glossary. Given this age group's growing interest in staying fit, these titles fit the bill to keep kids on target in an interesting and approachable format. 2001, Capstone Press, $23.93. Ages 11 to 16.

Gr 7-10-These good overviews of aspects of nutrition are attractively presented with lots of color photos and varied page layouts. Both authors approach their subjects in a clear, informative manner and encourage teens to think for themselves about caring for their bodies through good nutrition, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle. Duden looks at different types of vegetarianism and the reasons behind them. She offers useful information on planning a healthy diet and handling dining situations away from home. Food covers a broad spectrum of topics from the effect of food on brain chemistry to blood sugar, cravings, and eating disorders. The importance of a balanced diet, sufficient water, and plenty of sleep is stressed. Healthy Eating examines diet as only one aspect of a lifestyle that will naturally yield effective weight control and encourages readers to exercise and avoid fad diets. Overall nutritional needs are spelled out, and dietary myths are dispelled. Unfortunately, all three books are peppered with fictionalized dialogues that are so wooden as to be indigestible. Other titles that enlarge on the topics at hand include Jan Parr's The Young Vegetarian's Companion (Watts, 1996), which is chock-full of resources, information, and an overt agenda; Michele Ingber Drohan's Weight-Loss Programs; Elizabeth Frankenberger's Food and Love; and Laura Weeldreyer's Body Blues (all Rosen, 1998).-Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
