Description

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.

    This is defiantly a book worth reading. It really does make you take a serious second look at your food. I would recommend it to everyone because we are so disconnected from where we get our food
  • Great Read

    Pollan went to great extents to give you the secrets behind food. This is the YOUTH version of the book, not a children's novel. If you want to eat healthier, or, if you want to eat at all, read this book!!!
  • Must read for anyone who eats

    Polan is known for his thoughtful and surprising approach to food. The examples are illumining and the conclusions are inspiring. However apple this is not a children's novel

    A good read about the state of the American plate. It makes you think twice about what we eat and how seriously we think about it.
