Q. Why should kids read The Omnivore’s Dilemma?
A. For the same reason anyone should read it—to know where your food is coming from. The source of our food is very often hidden from us. When kids go into a fast-food outlet, they have no idea where that chicken nugget or those French fries came from. Also, to understand the links between their habits and their health. When you know those things, I think you can make better choices about what to eat.
