About the Books
Nutrition: Science and Applications
by Lori A. Smolin and Mary B. Grosvenor
This book helps develop the scientific understanding to support personal and professional decisions. Using a critical thinking approach, the book brings nutrition out of the classroom and allows students to apply the logic of science to their own nutrition concerns—both as consumers and as future scientists and health professionals.
The text and WileyPLUS course has been developed through a collaboration between the authors and the Nutrition Advisory Board, a team of dedicated nutrition instructors who help review and develop all of Wiley’s nutrition resources.
Visualizing Nutrition: Everyday Choices
by Mary B. Grosvenor and Lori A. Smolin
Visualizing Nutrition offers students a valuable opportunity to identify and connect the central issues of nutritional science in a visual approach. As students explore the critical topics of nutrition, they create a desire to understand the topics through demonstration of their relevance to the reader’s personal life. The material provides students with the decision-making skills needed throughout their lifespan to navigate the myriad of choices they will face in promoting their good health and in preventing disease. Visualizing Nutrition’s critical thinking approach and a solid underpinning of the process of science empowers students to be knowledgeable consumers when faced with decisions about what to eat. As students apply the thought processes and decision-making skills learned throughout the course, they come to understand that there are not “good” foods and “bad” foods, but rather that each choice is only part of an overall healthy diet and that it is the sum of those choices that determines good nutrition. The premier art program, interactive components, and applicable content, make this a sure winner in sharing ones passion for Nutrition and engaging students.
