Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Amy Hess-Fischl, MS, RD, LDN, BC-ADM, CDE (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: Part of a two-volume set on infant nutrition in the Nutrition and Health series, this book covers normal nutrition in infants from a global perspective with a broad overview of world issues. The previous edition was published 12 years ago, making this a needed update.
Purpose: The purpose is to discuss the growing body of evidence regarding infant nutrition and the book does that well, but at a very high level, presuming readers are researchers or experts in this area.
Audience: The book, as well as the series, is designed to elevate the knowledge base of researchers and specialty practitioners (such as neonatologists) as well as to update them on the most current research available. The series as a whole is designed for readers who already have a very good understanding in this field.
Features: As expected, the book covers a variety of topics, spanning from breast feeding and premature infant feeding to micronutrients. One interesting chapter includes an overview of complementary local foods for infants in developing countries, noting the guidance practitioners in the U.S. give to families: food acceptance on the part of an infant may take five to 10 exposures. While many of the chapters would be very useful to practitioners in developing countries (since WHO guidelines are given for nutrients), the book is merely an interesting read for U.S. practitioners. The book uses tables throughout, including WHO guidelines and RDAs of nutrients.
Assessment: This is an interesting volume for researchers and specialists interested in the most up-to-date research, and nutrition professionals.
