Significantly revised and updated, the eighth edition provides the latest evidence-based guidance on the full spectrum of childhood nutrition issues. More than 50 chapters cover the latest information on nutrient metabolism to support the normal development and health of infants and children who are well, those born with congenital anomalies or disorders of metabolism, and those with acute and chronic illnesses. Tables and figures provide a ready resource for topics that impact practice, including the nutrient content of selected foods, recommended daily nutrient requirements, the fortification and use of specialized infant formulas, and more.
New in the eighth edition:
- New chapter on Pediatric Global Nutrition.
- Other chapters have been completely reorganized, based on new information in nutritional science and new evidence-based guidelines recommending changes in practice.
- New policy statement on sugary drinks and new clinical reports on food insecurity, fruit juice consumption, fish and shellfish consumption, and use of donor human milk for the preterm infant.
