More About This Textbook

Overview

The field of pediatric nutrition has developed into an area essential to components of academic pediatric program throughout the world. Among the pediatric texts available, none deals with the physiologic or pathophysiologic basis of nutrition in pediatric health and disease in children of all ages. "Nutrition in Pediatrics, Fourth Edition", fills this void, extending physiologic and pathophysiologic considerations to their coverage of nutritional needs with respect to disease and covers diagnosis of nutritional imbalance and management as well. The 4th edition includes an entirely new section on pediatric obesity: epidemiology, pathophysiology, assessment and treatment. It includes new chapters on celiac disease, food allergies and iron. This edition includes updated growth curves, including the newly released WHO growth curves for exclusively breastfed infants. It contains expanded and updated chapters on international nutrition, including protein energy malnutrition and community nutrition. This edition of this textbook continues to be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive and accessible approach to pediatric nutrition. Sections include basic concepts in the development of nutritional requirements of infants and children and a pathophysiology section examining cardinal manifestations and development. These sections will augment a comprehensive approach to perinatal nutrition, nutrition of specific disease states and nutritional management.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Melanie B Gillingham, PhD (Oregon Health and Science University)
Description: This detailed book covers all basic areas of pediatric nutrition including nutrient needs for optimal growth and development as well as common childhood diseases and disorders with a nutritional basis and/or therapy such as obesity. The previous edition was published in 2003.
Purpose: The goal is to provide a comprehensive guide to pediatric nutrition. In this edition, new chapters on emerging areas in the field are emphasized, such as the fetal origins of adult disease and the growing epidemics of obesity and diabetes. A complete overview and reference on pediatric nutrition is essential for health professionals, researchers, and educators in the field. The authors are successful in covering pediatric nutrition in this fourth edition.
Audience: It is written for practicing medical professionals such as pediatricians, obstetricians, nurses, and dietitians who work in pediatrics. It is useful for educators in pediatric nutrition, but includes more detail than can be covered in most basic pediatric nutrition courses. The authors are experts in their fields.
Features: The book covers general nutrition requirements for children, perinatal nutrition and its relation to later health, obesity and energy balance, and various pediatric disease states. The new sections on perinatal nutrition and expanded information on the obesity epidemic and potential treatment therapies are novel and well presented. The appendixes provide extensive tables with standards for nutrition assessment, nutrient requirements in children, and enteral products available to health professionals. The figures are helpful, but the text is dense and packed in three columns per page.
Assessment: This comprehensive textbook provides greater detail specific to pediatrics than classic graduate nutrition textbooks such as Modern Nutrition in Health and Disease, 10th edition, Shils et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2006). This is one of the first books to include a detailed description of perinatal nutrition and its effect on postnatal and adult disease. For health professionals and educators in the field of pediatric nutrition, this is an important addition to your reference library.
