Food activist Michael Pollan has written many books that speak about our food industry, shining a light on Americaâ€™s food system and on where our food comes from. These famous titles include â€śThe Omnivoreâ€™s Dilemmaâ€ť and â€śIn Defense of Foodâ€ť.
One of his latest ventures is adapting the Omnivoreâ€™s Dilemma for young readers, which is a great opportunity for children to learn at a young age the importance of eating healthy, but equally important for understanding where the food they are eating comes from. If we are going to help kids make better choices, we need to give them the information they need to make smart decisions.
The new version is slated to be loaded with lots of facts, photos and graphs to help reinforce the messaging, which is: Itâ€™s time to take control of what we eat and where it comes from. We do have influence over the food system in our country, but it takes all of us making personal choices that will help enact that change.
The Omnivoreâ€™s Dilemma: The Young Readerâ€™s Edition is being released on October 15 and can be pre-ordered on Amazon.com.
