Essentials of Pediatric Nutrition relays the key information that is needed to work in pediatric nutrition and with various age groups and diseases/conditions. It is different from the very successful fourth edition of Pediatric Nutrition, which is a complete textbook that includes evidence-based research, discussion behind the clinical decisions and best-practice guidelines. This consolidated and modified version covers the core best-practice guidelines with limited discussion on the most needed information on the normal child from preconception through adolescence as well as infants and children with diseases/conditions affecting nutritional status. Essentials of Pediatric Nutrition provides the tools and resources needed to assess, monitor, and determine appropriate interventions aimed at maximal nutrition status and growth. Because infants and children have unique nutritional needs and physiology, advanced study in pediatric nutrition by health practitioners is vital for exemplary health care. This book contains the essential and unique nutritional information that pediatric practitioners can use and apply in their individual settings for each infant or child. This book is intended for use by all students learning about pediatric nutrition and for practitioners managing the nutrition of pediatric groups and individuals.
