Overview

Do we really need another book about food and how to eat? Yes! Dr. Nancy Irven has designed a straightforward and easily understood class on nutrition at the local high school. Her volunteer efforts have had astonishing results among her students. Please Don't Eat the Wallpaper! is written in a simple style with her high school students in mind. Through the humor, you'll find thought-provoking observations on how we nourish our bodies. She takes an integral look into the diets of average fourteen year olds and their perceptions of the food they eat. She teaches them to want better food and how to make better choices. Dr. Irven's passion is fueled by researching nutritional literature over the past twenty years. "The experts are now stating that the upcoming generation will not outlive its parents because of current trends of child obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer." "I feel we must get their attention and do something productive once we get it." "Do they know what is and is not healthy?" "They do not. They need to be taught." "European countries have lower infant mortality rates than the United States. We are one of the richest countries with the most advanced medical system and yet our babies are dying." Please Don't Eat the Wallpaper! is written for Dr. Irven's patients, students, friends, family, and for those of you who are still confused about healthy foods. Please Don't Eat the Wallpaper! will change the way you think about food.
