Pediatric Nutrition for Dietitians is a comprehensive textbook for undergraduate and graduate dietetics students and an invaluable resource for all dietitians working with children. The book discusses specific nutrient needs of each age group from infancy to adolescence in detail with a focus on the key components of nutrition assessment and intervention. Disease-specific chapters describe the common nutrient-related conditions in childhood and follow the ADIME format used in clinical practice. These chapters are written by clinical experts consisting of a combination of physicians and dietitians. Each disease-specific chapter ends with an ADIME table summarizing nutritional care for the specific population and serves as a quick guide for managing patients. This book provides dietitians with the nutrition assessment and intervention tools needed to adapt to the ever-changing landscape of pediatric nutrition and provide expert nutrition care regardless of the situation.
