The New York Times bestseller that's changing America's diet is now perfect for younger readers

'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.

An interesting book to read that clarifies the meaning of "organic" and offers alternative lifestyle choices with regards to food.
