Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The American Dietetic Association, along with Duyff, noted food and nutrition consultant, have written a readable and timely book for the lay reader. Some of the topics discussed are the food pyramid, what to eat (and not eat) while taking prescription medicines, preparing your own baby food, nutritional needs of the elderly, eating ostrich meat, the iron content of foods when cooking in iron pots, and the calories in the glue of a postage stamp. Included is a lengthy resource list of associations/organizations that will provide more information. However, an index is not included, and olestra is only briefly mentioned. Duyff gives sound advice, making this a good addition to the Mount Sinai School of Medicine Complete Book of Nutrition (St. Martin's, 1990). Recommended for public libraries.Connie Weaver, Bosler Free Lib., Carlisle, Pa.
