The subjects of food and nutrition can seem confusing but they don't have to be!
Do you know which foods give your body energy? Build bones? Build muscle? Help with digestion? How about what foods might not be the best for your body?
This simple book answers these questions with basic information on nutrition, what foods provide what nutrients, and what effects these can have on a growing body. The book takes care to make it clear that not all nutritionists agree, and there is much to learn on this interesting topic.
The accompanying learning guide includes activities such as keeping a food diary, researching various current diet plans, interviewing parents for their opinions about diet, going to a grocery store to read ingredient labels of various foods, and creating and following a personal menu plan.
