This readable, engaging, and motivating presentation introduces each vitamin and mineral in self-contained spreads called Visual Summary Tables that appeal to todayâ€™s visual learners. Students learn to identify the key aspects of each nutrient at a glance and in a consistent, easy-to-study format. Blake encourages students to relate the science of nutrition to their own dietary habits, enabling them to separate fact from fiction and to distinguish high-quality nutrient sources from those of lesser quality. Blakeâ€™s approach teaches students to think critically about information sources and the claims made in the popular press and online.
The MyPlate Edition features a write-to-fit update so that students and instructors have the latest nutrition information right within their book (and instructors donâ€™t have to change their syllabus). New information includes the new MyPlate graphic (which replaces the former MyPyramid), the 2010 Guidelines, and the new Dietary Reference Intakes.Â
Included withÂ N utrition and You: Core Concepts For Good Health,Â MasteringHealthâ„¢ is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment product designed to improve results by helping students quickly master concepts. Students benefit from self-paced tutorials that feature immediate wrong-answer feedback and hints that emulate the office-hour experience to help keep students on track and prepared for lecture.
