The Truth About Your Food

In the past, people grew, raised, and hunted their own food. While there are still people who follow this lifestyle, most people today get their food from a store or restaurant. Because of this, we don't always know exactly what's in our food. With the help of these fact-forward volumes, readers are able to develop a deeper understanding of what goes into different kinds of foods—from manufactured meats and soft drinks to snack foods and GMOs. The science of food production and nutrition is explained in a comprehensive way through clear text, engaging sidebars, full-color photographs, and graphic organizers.

Each Book Contains:
• Critical thinking questions at the end of each chapter to encourage readers to develop their own informed opinions about what they've read
• Balanced text that informs readers without scaring them or shaming them for their food choices
• A list of books, websites, and organizations to contact to encourage independent fact-checking and further research

Curriculum Connections:
• Supplements basic health curricula surrounding nutrition
• Aligns with curriculum standards regarding the study of scientific and technical processes, as readers follow how foods and drinks are created from initial ingredients to the finished product
• Discusses the essential curriculum concept of cause and effect, as readers are introduced to the effects that different foods can have on the human body, the environment, and society in general
