Wardlaw's Contemporary Nutrition is a complete and balanced resource for nutrition information written at a level non-science majors can understand. Current research is at the core of the Eleventh Edition with revised statistics, incorporation of new results of clinical trials, and updated recommendations. The text provides students who lack a strong science background with the ideal balance of reliable nutrition information and practical, consumer-oriented knowledge.
The authors consistently seek to make the content relevant to learners and highlight health conditions, medications, food products, and supplements students or members of their families may be using. With a friendly writing style, the authors act as the students' personal guide to dispelling common misconceptions and gaining a solid foundation to make informed nutrition choices. For everyday diet planning, students will learn about the 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, MyPlate, and Healthy People 2020.
