This textbook was written for students who seek public service, whether in government or the private sector. It was designed to develop leaders--nutrition entrepreneurs, if you will--who, through innovation and creativity, can guide individuals and communities to proper nutrition and good health. The book is organized into three sections. Section 1 lays the foundation for community work . Section II focuses on the tools of the community nutritionist. Section III describes current federal and nongovernment programs designed to meet the food and nutritional needs of pregnant and lactating women, infants, children, adolescents, and adults, including the elderly.
