Publisher Comments:

In the New York Times bestseller Chew on This, Eric Schlosser and Charles Wilson unwrap the fast-food industry to bring you a behind-the-scenes look at a business that both feeds and feeds off the young. Find out what really goes on at your favorite restaurants—and what lurks between those sesame seed buns.

Praised for being accessible, honest, humorous, fascinating, and alarming, Chew On This was also repeatedly referred to as a must-read for kids who regularly eat fast food. Having all the facts about fast food helps young people make healthy decisions about what they eat. Chew On This shows them that they can change the world by changing what they eat.

Chew on This also includes action steps, a discussion guide, and a new afterword by the authors.

Synopsis:

Kids love fast food. And the fast food industry definitely loves kids. It couldnt survive without them. Did you know that the biggest toy company in the world is McDonalds? Its 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, its 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 theyre eating? Where do fast food hamburgers come from? And what makes those fries taste so good?

When Eric Schlossers 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.

Chew on this by Eric Schlosser, is filled with entertaining fast food stories and facts. Some of the topics are, What will happen to your body if you eat to much fast food, is what your eating really what you think it is? Why was spinach lasagna more popular than the hamburger? You will also meet the people who made the fast food business, and who invented the Hamburger. Learn about these fascinating subjects in Chew on This!!!!

If you are overweight or want a non-fiction book to read, you should definitely read Chew on this. When I read this book it changed my view from, fast food is just fat, to fast food is the grossest food you could possibly eat. If it is hard for you to keep your diet on schedule then read Chew on This and I guarantee you that it will be much easier to lose weight and gain the muscle you’ve always wanted.
