?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.
