"The Omnivore's Dilemma" for kids

  • 2

Michael Pollan was on Martha the other day and mentioned that he had done a revised version aimed at children, on the theory that explaining to them how their favorite foods are produced might turn them off chicken nuggets and HFCS, and help them become wiser consumers. Hats off to him for this approach - hope it works, because we are now in a generational situation in which a high proportion of the parents of young children make poor food choices themselves, and are largely uninformed about nutrition.

  1. Is it in book-form? Or an article? Did he mention when it would be released? I'd be really interested in seeing it.
