Description du produit

Revue de presse

"Vivid . . . compelling.' —Booklist, starred review Booklist, ALA, Starred Review

"A stinging, often startling expose on this country's pervasive, lucrative fast-food industry, for young people." —Publishers Weekly Publishers Weekly

"Fascinating -- and alarming. . . . This book is full of inspiring examples of how one person can make a difference." —LA Times The Los Angeles Times

"Chew on This is an expose of the fast-food industry and a nauseating disclosure of the fats, sweeteners, laboratory-formulated textures, scents and colors that sizzle under the Golden Arches. Read this, and you have had your last Happy Meal." —The New York Times Book Review

"Chew On This should be circulated widely among America's youth. And should be commended for the fact that even in the face of such overwhelmingly bad news, it doesn't completely lose its sense of humor." —The San Francisco Chronicle

"With its discussion of alternatives . . . Chew on This puts a nice, empowering spin on the old Burger King jingle, "Have it your way." Along with the all-McDonald's diet movie, "Supersize Me," this should be required fare before the next lunch bell rings." —The Washington Post

"Chew On This is an eye-opening book with a worthy message." —Bookpage Bookpage

"Useful for health classes and nutrition units, it will also be an eye-opener for general readers who regularly indulge at the Golden Arches. . . .But the emphasis here is on the truth about soda pop and obestity, fries and lies." —School Library Journal

"Eye-opening and often stomach-churning...this book is a fascinating look at a very controversial subject." —VOYA (Voice of Youth Advocates)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Kids love fast food. And the fast food industry definitely loves kids. It couldn’t survive without them. Did you know that the biggest toy company in the world is McDonald’s? It’s true. In fact, one out of every three toys given to a child in the United States each year is from a fast food restaurant.

Not only has fast food reached into the toy industry, it’s moving into our schools. One out of every five public schools in the United States now serves brand name fast food. But do kids know what they’re eating? Where do fast food hamburgers come from? And what makes those fries taste so good?

When Eric Schlosser’s best-selling book, Fast Food Nation, was published for adults in 2001, many called for his groundbreaking insight to be shared with young people. Now Schlosser, along with co-writer Charles Wilson, has investigated the subject further, uncovering new facts children need to know.

In Chew On This, they share with kids the fascinating and sometimes frightening truth about what lurks between those sesame seed buns, what a chicken ‘nugget’ really is, and how the fast food industry has been feeding off children for generations.

Featuring cover art by M. Wartella.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Son banned fast food 30 mai 2017
Par Heather B - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I'm going to review this for my 10-year-old son who chose to read it for a school book report project. Firstly, he's a strong reader but needs a lot of motivation (like a school assignment deadline). He enjoyed learning about the birth of fast food and how the industry works. I could go into what the book is about or what it does or does not include, but there are a lot of those already.

I can tell you, there hasn't been any inquiries about stopping at McDonald's or any other fast food restaurant since he read this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fast Food Revisited 17 avril 2015

"Chew on This" is essentially "Fast Food Nation" rewritten for young adults. Co-authored by Eric Schlosser and Charles Wilson, this book takes a no-holds-barred look at the fast food industry and how it has affected our farms, our waistlines, and our lives. It includes pictures and stories that are sure to interest younger readers and make them question their eating habits.

The authors begin with a brief history of the hamburger before moving on to how McDonald's grew from one restaurant into a worldwide franchise. And from there, how the fast food industry's demand for beef and chicken has completely changed the farming industry. Much of the focus is on McDonald's, which might seem extreme at some times, yet that franchise really was the impetus for many of the ways that fast food restaurants function today. The authors examine how processed foods are created, how too much fast food can negatively impact our bodies, how fast food workers are treated, and how our towns and cities have changed, all in the name of fast food. Some of the information is truly shocking, while other information is downright disheartening.

"Chew on This: Everything You Don't Want to Know About Fast Food" is an eye-opening read that should be required reading for its target audience. As someone who works in the education field, I see just how unhealthy school lunches can be and the extent of the unhealthy eating habits many students have. I hope that those who read this book will think twice before they visit another fast food restaurant.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fast Food Nation Lite - good for younger readers 29 février 2016

I read Fast Food Nation when it came out in 2001 and it totally changed my eating habits. Though I was never a big consumer of fast food in the first place, it was an eye opening account of the industry. Outside of the rare occasion when a McDonalds was the only choice, I've managed to avoid most fast food joints in the past 15 yrs since reading the book. Now that I have kids, I have tried to educate them on making healthy choices when it comes to eating. I don't prohibit them from eating fast food, but I feel that that should be informed about what goes on behind the scenes in the fast food industry with regards to the quality of the food, the working conditions of the employees, and the marketing. I bought Chew On This for my kids to read when they're ready. I read it as well, and although I don't think it's on par with Fast Food Nation, it offers good insights for younger readers. My oldest son, who is 11, read it in two days, and he enjoyed it as well as being grossed out by some of the stories. A book is no substitute for a discussion with your kids about healthy eating, but I do recommend this book in helping to start that discussion.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 School Reading 3 septembre 2014

Required reading for school, but my daughter ended up sharing it with the family. She actually read the entire book. We (grown ups) watched the film- and I advise anyone to pre-view the film (posted on the book), it is NOT family viewing. Right old shock, that was... We were definitely not expecting that the film is well different than this book.
However, this book IS for young readers, and it is informative and easy to read. My daughter learned a lot about processed food, and it was nice that she no longer needs to wonder why we do not let her eat the rubbish and highly processed "food" here. Brought her around to the side of eating well and why it matters.

You will be much more aware of the influence-as well as the nasty stuff- the fast-food chains pass off as edible.
Considering the poor nutrition of this (TRULY) junk food passed off to the public, it's no wonder diabetes and obesity are such big issues.
We treat food like it doesn't impact our health in the U.S.A. We have passed on this myth to other countries, too.
Any place we sell this stuff, the people are negatively impacted.

I haven't eaten in a fast food place or drank soda in years. It always made me feel sick afterward. Now I know why.
