The Monrovia Public Library also owns the DVD of Fast Food Nation. Rather than a documentary, this film is a fictionalized comedy version starring actor Greg Kinnear. For the true experience, read the book.Chew On This: Everything You Don’t Want to Know About Fast Food by Eric Schlosser and Charlie Wilson is for a younger audience. Written in a bright and accessible manner, this book helps kids and parents understand exactly what is in that burger or fries and how that fast food meal was produced. This is a great book for family discussions.
There are so many books, newspaper articles and television programs about food and nutrition. Fast Food Nation and Chew on This still remain very relevant.
