Omnivore's Dilemma: Young Readers Edition. The Secrets Behind What You Eat
“What’s for dinner?” seemed like a simple question—until journalist and supermarket detective Michael Pollan delved behind the scenes. From fast food and big organic to small farms and old-fashioned hunting and gathering, this young readers’ adaptation of Pollan’s famous food-chain exploration encourages kids to consider the personal and global health implications of their food choices. In a smart, compelling format with updated facts, plenty of photos, graphs, and visuals, as well as a new afterword and backmatter, The Omnivore’s Dilemma serves up a bold message to the generation that needs it most: It’s time to take charge of our national eating habits—and it starts with you. Ages 8-20. 343 pages. Everyone should know where their food comes from so that they can make informed choices. This book is full of good information about the food we eat and it's sources. Strong graphic appeal would also make this a great read for those adults who are not inclined to read the "adult" version.
