Editorial Reviews

Marc S. Jacobson
Nutritionists see patients of all ages with various medical problems, and pediatric practitioners often see patients who have nutritional issues. This is a comprehensive text/handbook of all aspects of pediatric and adolescent nutrition, including management of specific medical disorders. The expressed purpose is to provide a state-of-the-art, scientific knowledge base of pediatric nutrition. This type of book is much needed and the new edition also includes updated information on areas such as complementary medicine, vegetarianism, and medical illnesses that pose specific nutritional challenges (e.g., cardiac disease and AIDS). The editors' objectives are clearly met. This book is written for pediatric practitioners by recognized authorities in the field of nutrition. It will be particularly helpful to nutritionists and dieticians with pediatric practices. However, there is so much useful information presented that anyone in the healthcare field who works with children could use this book as a valuable resource. In addition to the standard textual information, this edition contains many useful algorithms, tables, and exhibits. The table of contents and index are both adequate. The book is simple in appearance; the hard cover is impressive, but renders it less portable. This edition includes an excellent appendix with specific growth charts and nomograms, as well as other important tables. This is an exceptionally well-planned guide to pediatric nutrition. It is comprehensive in scope covering both preventative care as well as management of a multitude of medical nutritional problems. It would make a fine addition to any office bookshelf for both nutritionist and pediatrician.
