Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Amy Hess-Fischl, MS, RD, LDN, BC-ADM, CDE (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This is an up-to-date book on all aspects of pediatric nutrition. It begins with a brief overview of the chapters before describing in greater depth what each chapter covers. The third edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: There are very few in-depth books on pediatric nutrition, especially textbooks written by nutrition professionals for nutrition professionals. This is a welcome update.
Audience: The authors feel this book can be used by all disciplines, but it is most appropriate for dietetics practitioners working with the pediatric population. However, it could be used as a reference by other healthcare professionals to understand what is behind nutrition assessments, evaluations, and calculations.
Features: This is a very detailed book on pediatric nutrition, and every chapter uses tables and exhibits that clarify the material. For example, the chapter covering gastrointestinal disorders includes a long table of common pediatric gastrointestinal disorders as well as a list of common diagnostic tests. The chapter on nutrition assessment includes a table of potential changes in energy expenditure associated with different diagnoses; equations for predicting energy requirements for children; and an example of calculating total energy expenditure in an 11-year-old boy. The chapter on weight management devotes one-and-a-half pages to available resources for weight management intervention programs, including websites. Many of the chapters include case studies to illustrate concepts. All chapters include a long list of references. The book concludes with 10 appendixes presenting growth charts, arm measurements, nomograms, biochemical evaluations of nutrition status, as well as the executive summary of the newly published 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Assessment: This is a very detailed and complete reference for healthcare professionals working in pediatric nutrition. There are very few textbooks available of this caliber, so this is a welcome addition. Although it is geared for nutrition professionals, it is well worth the time for healthcare providers in other disciplines to read and use it as a reference.
