Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A graduate or undergraduate course text and professional reference introducing the Community Nutrition Paradigm, which can be used in interventions with either groups or individuals. Emphasizes that applying the principles of food and nutrition in the community is a process rather than a product; that successful methods and strategies often must change to account for new variables or barriers; and that the process is never finished.
