Overview

Essentials of Life Cycle Nutrition is a more basic version of the author’s larger text, Nutrition in the Life Cycle: An Evidenced-Based Approach, without the high-level research basics more appropriate for advanced nutrition courses. It covers nutrition requirements through out the life span, with a special emphasis on both pregnancy and end of life issues. Including over 100 illustrations, photos and tables, Essentials provides a look into contemporary nutritional issues such as pediatric vegetarianism, childhood obesity, diabetes, eating disorders, chronic disease, pharmacologic considerations, physical activity and weight management, and unique nutrition needs in the older adult. The text also provides a full spectrum of the nutritional guidelines to begin the solid preparation needed for a career in practice.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Amy Hess-Fischl, MS, RD, LDN, BC-ADM, CDE (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This book covers all aspects of life cycle nutrition for dietetic professionals as well as other interested healthcare professionals. The previous edition was published in 2002.
Purpose: It is intended as a comprehensive reference and teaching tool for dietetics students as well as practicing dietitians and other healthcare professionals.
Audience: While all healthcare professionals can use this book, dietetics professionals have the greatest need for this information.
Features: The book is separated into two sections: prenatal through adolescence, and adulthood. The first section has some excellent additions to this edition, among them pediatric vegetarianism and childhood overweight. Chapters include an outline, objectives, learning points, key definitions in the margins, and website references for more in-depth information. Additional features include evidence-based practice and clinical studies that have been conducted on the various topics. The authors use the American Dietetic Association's Evidence Analysis Library for a multitude of topics. Case studies and critical thinking questions reinforce the material. Chapters also stress the importance of understanding the needs of public health nutrition, which drives home the point that, while dietetics professionals are the experts on nutrition, all healthcare professionals have an integral role in the dissemination of key nutrition topics.
Assessment: This is an excellent reference for healthcare professionals as well as students who already have a good understanding of nutrition. The third edition provides a needed update.
