DESCRIPTION

 

The field of pediatric nutrition has developed into an area essential to the components of academic pediatric programs throughout the world. Fundamental aspects of health and disease are strongly related to the "nutritional environment" (nutritional status and dietary intake). Nutrition in Pediatrics, 5th edition provides a comprehensive and accessible approach to pediatric nutrition.

 

The 5th edition continues the expansion of the section on pediatric obesity: epidemiology, pathophysiology, assessment and treatment. It includes new chapters on celiac disease, food allergies, and iron.

 

This edition includes expanded and updated chapters on international nutrition, including focused chapters on nutrition in low- and middle-income countries.

 

The text is divided into seven sections: General Concepts in Pediatric Nutrition, Physiology and Pathophysiology, Perinatal Nutrition,  Obesity, Nutrition in Low- and Middle-Income Countries, Nutritional Aspects of Specific Disease States, and Approach to Nutritional Support.

 

 

KEY FEATURES

 

  • The valuable and comprehensive appendices—Nutritional Assessment, Nutritional Requirements, and Enteral Products—have been retained and updated in the new edition.
