    In the age category 9 - 12 today, I found The Omnivore's Dilemma (for young children) which will we will be reading to them before bed now. Very cool find!

    Thanks! I'm gonna check it out...My kids aren't that old, but I'm going to be homeschooling next year and was just beginning to look at a unit on nutrition and wondering how to get into it with them. My 4 year old is learning about the food pyramid at school this week...the one that the government puts out. Blah! I'm not fussing over it right now...but I will be teaching them PB laws next year! woo hoo

    I originally replied to this over 3 months ago, but I'm just getting around to actually looking for the book. Our local library system has one being ordered called "The Omnivore's Dilemma: The Secret Behind What We Eat," by Richie Chevat. There's another one, already on the shelves, called "The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals," by Michael Pollan. Is it the first one you're recommending? Anyone read the second one?

    Any other suggestions about books for kids? We've just started our homeschooling and I'd like to do a nutrition study sooner rather than later! I'd love to have some books to back it up!

    The one I'm talking about is "The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals". Michael Pollan also has a young readers edition of the same book which is excellent for helping kids to understand that just because something is in a grocery store doesn't make it a good choice for purchase.

    Awesome! Thanks for the quick reply! I'll pick up the library version today and see if I can make the adults book young enough or look up the young readers version at the book store. Thanks a bunch!
