Outstanding Canadian content:  Canadian Content is a key issue for most instructors who like to see Canadian standards and research highlighted in their course resource.  This Canadian edition of Visualizing Nutrition is a thorough adaptation that has thoroughly integrated key Canadian content.

Effective learning system in visual format:  Today's students are highly visual and respond very well to the unique visual approach offered in Visualizing Nutrition.  The visuals encourage students to read the chapters and help them to understand the material.  This unique visual approach, in combination with the active learning tools, present the principles of nutrition and the basic science in manageable learning "chunks" that help students to see and understand the subject matter.

Emphasis on applications and critical thinking: It is important that students are able to apply the concepts and science of nutrition that they learn in class to their everyday life and diet.  Applications features in each chapter provide practical information and tools to do this. Critical thinking apparatus throughout encourages students to apply what they have learned.

Balanced Approach: Visualizing Nutrition has a balanced approach that is suitable for a mixed classroom of majors and non-majors, covering the applications of nutritional information to students’ personal lives with a solid underpinning of the science of nutrition.

Focus on Choice:  A theme of choice with an emphasis on critical thinking helps students analyze the nutritional information that they encounter every day and to apply it to their own diet. The interaction of nutrition, health, and disease is integrated throughout chapter discussions, rather than being boxed or set apart.
