Index of Free and Inexpensive Food and Nutrition Information Materials.
Gordon, Kathleen, Comp.; And Others
This annotated index contains approximately 2,000 free or inexpensive pamphlets or brochures about food and nutrition. The prime criterion for inclusion of materials was that they be easily available and inexpensive; the cut-off cost was set at $3.00. The majority of materials listed were produced in either Canada or the United States. These materials come from many sources, including governments, professional and trade associations, marketing boards, and industry. This compilation is divided into four sections, the first of which lists resources under 25 subsections, including basic nutrients; bibliographies and directories; cardiovascular disease; community health and school education programs; cultural food patterns; deficiencies/diseases/trauma; dental health; diabetes; dietary standards/nutritional status; food consumption/dietary intake; food guides/food groups; food preservation and safety; food purchasing, storage and preparation; the food system; foods; food service; general nutrition information; handicapped; the health care system; international issues; nutrition in the life cycle; physical fitness; therapeutic diets; and weight control. The second section contains a subject index, which lists the resources according to various topics. The last two sections consist of a title index which lists (alphabetically) the titles of all materials, and a source index which contains mailing addresses for all publications listed in the resource section.
