Contemporary Diet and Nutrition Resources

Assignment #6:

I have had my eyes opened to so many things that I have never really considered before when it comes to diet and nutrition. Have you ever wondered how healthy eating guidelines are established? How did fast food chains like McDonald's make it into foreign countries? These are things I would have never thought about when it come to diet and nutrition.

Check out these helpful resources to gain some new insight. There is a multitude of media options included so you may have to look up some books :)
