Overview

NUTRITION: CONCEPTS AND CONTROVERIES, MYPYRAMID UPDATE TENTH EDITION focuses on nutrition principles and their application while offering outstanding coverage of the biological foundations of nutrition without assuming previous knowledge of them. With its new design, contemporary coverage, and engaging writing style, it remains the leading Nutrition text for the non-majors or mixed majors/non-majors introductory course. Drawing readers into the study of nutrition, the authors have created a number of learning tools that are both appealing and accessible. From the chapter content and new "Do You Ever?" sections to the "Food Feature" boxes and end-of-chapter "Controversies," students find the information they need to better understand important nutrition concepts and to make informed and responsible decisions about their own nutrition. Additionally, the "Do It" activities, now available online, on the student CD-ROM, and in a free booklet that can be packaged with the text, students can practice applying their nutrition knowledge. There is also the accompanying NUTRITION CONNECTIONS CD-ROM, a unique resource that includes animations, chapter quizzes, a comprehensive glossary, "Do It!" activities, and Web links. For instructors, we offer a newly redesigned Multimedia Manager that includes PowerPoint® slides, animations, videos, and test questions. We also offer a new JoinIn? on TurningPoint®, a classroom resource to assess students' knowledge, take attendance, and more. So, whether looking for a text full of up-to-date information, a text that students enjoy reading, a text that offers a robust supplements package, or a text that can engage students and get themexcited about studying, NUTRITION CONCEPTS AND CONTROVERSIES is the text for you!
