Nutrition: From Science to You builds on the strengths of its sister book Nutrition & You and takes a personal approach to introductory nutrition in the majors market. This book is geared towards visual learners and aids students in applying the material they learn to themselves and their future clients and patients.


This text personalizes information for students to engage them in the subject matter, while retaining the scientific rigor needed. Innovative pedagogical features include the Visual Summary Tables, which present key information in the micronutrients chapters to support students as visual learners, and Table Tips throughout the book, which give students practical ways to improve their eating habits. CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
