|Reviewers Comments: ||The book can be a handy reference to help teach participants how to eat healthy when eating out. It can also be used to help demonstrate nutrition implications in relation to cost effectiveness when eating out; for example, an educator can explain that while eating at a fast food restaurant may appear cheaper, when looking at specific nutrients, it may be a better deal to prepare food at home. In addition to providing nutrition information of restaurant items, the book covers a variety of topics related to eating out, including beverage choices, options for children, special requests which can be made to modify menu items making them healthier, and restaurant lingo and definitions. The author refers to 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and the book includes a chart on how people can put the dietary guidelines into practice in while eating out in restaurants and in their daily lives.
The book is divided by type of cuisine, ranging from standard to more exotic, and incorporates fast food, carry-out and sit down restaurant cuisine. It does include mention of corporations, specific restaurants, and brand names and items. Educators may want to check the restaurant web sites for the most up to date nutrition facts on their menus, as menus may be modified frequently. However, the information provided in the book is general enough so that even if specific nutrition information of menu items is altered, basic recommendations on ordering advice will remain the same. The small size of the book makes it convenient for educators to keep it nearby, and its abundance of information makes it a great reference book for nutrition educators to use when teaching individuals and families.
