Summary: The Update Edition for Nutrition: An Applied Approach contains the most current information on the recently-released MyPyramid system (which replaced the Food Guide Pyramid) and the new 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. As in the First Edition, the Update presents introductory nutrition information to non-majors in an applied format that discourages memorization and promotes long-term understanding of the material. The authors capitalize on students' natural int ...show moreerest in nutrition by demonstrating how nutrition relates to their health and their everyday lives, and by addressing-and debunking-commonly held misconceptions students have about nutrition. The applied nature of the book is also reflected in the functional organization of the micronutrient chapters. With so many vitamins and minerals, their accompanying toxicity and deficiency symptoms, and their key food sources to remember, students can quickly become overwhelmed. Janice Thompson and Melinda Manore solve this teaching challenge by presenting the chapters on micronutrients in the context of their function, rather than their classification. This approach encourages students to develop a conceptual framework in which to organize the information and helps them understand the role of nutrients in their bodies and in their own health.

The book's applied approach can also be seen in the chapter-opening quizzes, case studies, end-of-chapter Nutrition Debates, and other active learning features that teach students how to be savvy consumers of current nutrition news and claims.

The book's comprehensive media package includes two diet analysis programs that enable students to determine the nutritional value of their meals and an open-access companion website that offers text-specific activities and quizzes, answers to questions posed in the Nutri-Case case studies, flashcards, and current news articles to help students get the most out of the class. MyNutritionLab can also be packaged with the text at no additional charge. MNL is a powerful course management tool that organizes numerous instructor and student resources for nutrition in one convenient online location. ...show less
