From the Publisher
Our bodies are always active - from before we are born until the day we die. Even when we're asleep our hearts continue to beat, we keep on breathing, and the cells that make up our bodies are constantly being repaired and renewed. All of this activity requires a supply of energy and a source of raw materials. Both of these things come from the food we eat. This book explains the importance of nutrition, and shows how things like appetite and the foods we want and need change during our lives.

Full-Text Reviews
School Library Journal (April 1, 2013)
Gr 7-9-These titles discuss the milestones, challenges, and concerns people experience as their bodies change throughout their lives. Each volume opens with a broad overview, followed by five-to-seven chapters that begin with infancy and end with old age. The presentations are mostly balanced. For example, Nutrition touches upon health, eating disorders, and different kinds of diets, among many other topics. Color photographs, diagrams, and graphs illustrate the pages. "Amazing But True!" text boxes, sidebars, and captions add details and background information. Chapters conclude with a short recall quiz with answers. Either a supplementary spread of facts or a time line is appended along with suggestions of places to visit, extension ideas, and lists of print and web resources. Unfortunately, inconsistencies, labeling problems, and other issues mar the series. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
