Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Maxie Sikora, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is the sixth edition of a nutrition handbook from the American Academy of Pediatrics that provides general guidelines as well as nutritional requirements for the general pediatric population as well as special needs populations.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide general pediatricians with guidance on nutrition and physical activity for their patients.
Audience: General pediatricians, residents in training, and pediatric nutritionists are the intended audience.
Features: The book covers a wide range of topics in pediatric nutrition, ranging from recommended daily allowances of nutrients to special dietary concerns of children with renal disease and other chronic illnesses. This edition has expanded coverage of the mechanisms by which specific nutrients influence growth. Also included are discussions on vegetarian diets, sports nutrition, and topics such as feeding the difficult child and the nutritional problems of adolescents. The tables summarizing the information in each chapter are very helpful. The chapter on food allergy chapter is especially well done and will be very helpful for general pediatricians.
Assessment: This is an excellent source of nutritional information for general pediatricians, nutritionists, and pediatric subspecialists. It is quite comprehensive and well researched with well annotated references to the scientific literature on nutrition.
