Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jessica C Schultz, BS (Dominican University)
Description: This book on public health nutrition focuses on practical applications of the principles, theories, and processes used to develop interventions within a certain population.
Purpose: The authors intend this book to be a guide for students and practitioners to help them develop population-based nutrition interventions as well as an ongoing tool that practitioners can improve to effectively help solve public health nutrition problems. This is a great tool for both students and healthcare professionals.
Audience: It is written for nutrition students as well as dietitians, community and public health nutritionists, and other related health professionals. The authors are internationally recognized experts in the field who are teachers of nutrition and public health.
Features: This book covers principles, theories, and processes commonly used to develop nutrition interventions within a population. I especially liked the three introductory chapters that outline why public health nutrition is so important, and they effectively pull readers into the book. The case studies also really engage readers in topics and concepts.
Assessment: This is an easy-to-read and understand book. The authors use a lot of figures and tables throughout the book to get their points across. I learned a lot from this book and would recommend it to anyone wanting to know more about public health nutrition.
From the Publisher
"This book by Roger Hughes and Barrie Margetts is a valuable tool for those working in PHN as it not only summarises the steps that are necessary for successful intervention but it also provides a number of practical examples that will help understand each step of an intervention. It will also be of benefit to students as a key textbook, providing them with basic skills/knowledge in the area of PHN practice." (Journal Nutrition Bulletin, 1 September 2011)
