  • "Spotlight" features use a question-and-answer format to relate current research to chapter topics and encourage critical thinking, often by addressing concerns many students have about nutrition, such as common digestive problems, eating disorders, and pros and cons of using supplements to enhance athletic performance.
  • Detachable "Study Cards" provide a summary of key points from the text and include a quiz for each chapter to help students review and master the material.
  • A "Scorecard" quiz in each chapter invites students to compare their own knowledge and behavior to nutritional principles and guidelines for healthy eating. Topics include "Rate Your Fats and Health IQ," "Healthy Weight," and "Estimate Your Protein Intake."
  • "Savvy Diner" features offer food selection and preparation suggestions for healthy eating and reinforce recommendations made in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Topics include buying healthy foods on a limited budget, incorporating whole grains into the diet, and maintaining healthy weight goals when eating out.
