Pediatric Nutrition

Rajiva Kumar (Author)

Proper nutrition begins at the supermarket with the foods you buy and continues at home as you prepare and serve meals. Giving your child a healthy start with good eating habits promotes his or her lifelong health. A variety of foods provides the nutrients that young children need to build strong bodies and stay healthy. Food also supplies the energy that children need to grow normally, play, learn, and explore the world around them. There are several methods for evaluating a child’s diet including 3 day written diaries, food frequency checklists and kitchen inventories. In clinical practice, the 24-hour recall history is most commonly used. Be sure to consider night feedings as part of a day. The book discusses all basic concepts in a simple way through extensive examples. The presentation of subject and its complex concepts are analysed from all practical point of view.
