Synopsis of A Healthy Diet

Food is the fuel that helps the human body function. The types of foods you choose to eat affect your physical and mental well-being. This book explores what young people need to know to live a healthy lifestyle and answers many important diet and nutrition questions.

Sheila Anderson - VOYA

This easy-to-read yet thorough book in a Watts Library series that focuses on human health and disease is extremely appropriate for middle school students and reluctant teen readers because it includes large text, useful photographs, and a section listing additional print and electronic resources as well as helpful organizations. A Healthy Diet explains different types of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals; describes the food guide pyramid and the importance of eating different types of foods; and helps readers choose physical activities that will lead to burning calories. The final chapter on common dieting questions advises teens about water intake, portions, herbal diet drugs, and eating disorders. The colorful photographs are impressive throughout the series; for example, in A Healthy Diet, a close-up photograph of a tomato sauce jar is used to illustrate nutrition and vitamin information. This series book, as well as the others that focus on AIDS, alcohol, cigarettes, cocaine, Lyme disease, and puberty, will be useful for students conducting research or for teens who are fulfilling their informational needs in public and school libraries. Glossary. Index. Illus. Photos. Charts. Source Notes. Further Reading. Chronology.
