Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The results of poor eating habits in America have been in the news over the last several years. Information such as one in six first graders is seriously overweight has raised concern among health care professionals. Poor eating habits begin early in life, and as we all know, are difficult to change as you get older. This interesting book brings the relationship of eating and health to teens in a format that is relevant to their lives. Not preachy or dry, the text includes just enough well-researched information to spark discussion among teens. Information about eating on the run, fast-food choices, super snacks, making your own snacks and making the right choices is condensed into chapters that include personal vignettes with which teens can identify. Fast facts about nutrition are included throughout, as well as an index, glossary and sources for seeking more information. Some color photos are included. Perfect for use in clubs, schools or after-school programs. Part of the "Nutrition and Fitness for Teens" series. 2001, Capstone Press, $23.93. Ages 12 to 18. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger
