    Nutrition, It’s good for you!, December 23, 2006

    This was a required text for my college nutrtion course. It was very useful and helpful for me when I wanted to learn how to combine foods for the most nutrient rich diet for my family. I have a young child and wanted to learn the best foods to optimize his health. There was a chapter specific to his age group, as well as chapters on nutrient needs for the pregnant and lacting mother. I was fascinated by the wealth of information this text provides. The authors need to review some of their end of chapter tests and be certain that they have answered correctly.

    I had my first class and the 1st edition seems to be identical to the newer edition. The questions are identical and it’s only missing two very minor sections on Alcohol and Phytochemicals, which is easily found online. I recommend buying this cheaper alternative. As an update, I finished the course and I did great with this book.

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I purchased this book for a nutrition class this semester and it was simple. It included a copy of the Diet Analysis and allowed me to follow with my class even with the newer edition. I received an A in the class and it was mostly due to the book. In the back of the book there is a glossary of food items with their calories and vitamins which is very helpful for someone creating a healthful diet.
