Publisher's summary

The New York Times best seller that’s changing America’s diet is now perfect for younger listeners.

“What’s for dinner"? seemed like a simple question - until journalist and supermarket detective Michael Pollan delved behind the scenes. From fast food and big organic to small farms and old-fashioned hunting and gathering, this young listeners’ adaptation of Pollan’s famous food-chain exploration encourages kids to consider the personal and global health implications of their food choices.

In a smart, compelling format with updated facts, plenty of photos, graphs, and visuals, as well as a new afterword, The Omnivore’s Dilemma serves up a bold message to the generation that needs it most: It’s time to take charge of our national eating habits - and it starts with you.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

"Thoughtful, engrossing.... You're not likely to get a better explanation of exactly where your food comes from." (The New York Times Book Review)

"An eater's manifesto...[Pollan's] cause is just, his thinking is clear, and his writing is compelling. Be careful of your dinner!" (The Washington Post)
