Addressing the growing trend of teenagers whose eating habits keep fast-food restaurants flourishing but do little to keep the kids themselves healthy and in shape, this guide presents teens with the latest information on a wide range of food topics. With sensitive language, the authors, both registered dietitians, cover everything from carbohydrates and vitamins to eating disorders and vegetarianism, along with the ultimate new frontier for busy teens—cooking it themselves.

Here's a guide for teens and adults that takes a different approach to the strange and wonderful eating practices of teenagers. It looks at what to accept, what to modify slightly, and what may cause emotional distress in either teen or adult. "Fueling the Teen Machine" is written for teens with a minimum of fuss and cajoling. It was created by two registered dieticians who felt teenagers were often lectured about eating, but were seldom given useful facts about food and nutrition. Ellen Shanley and Colleen Thompson gathered sound information on everything from eating disorders and evaluating diets to vegetarianism and fast food. The authors felt that teens needed a book just for them. Their work in child nutrition ultimately led to a statewide contest that produced the recipes, created by real teens, that appear in this book. Once and for all "Fueling the Teen Machine" establishes that there is life after junk food and french fries.
