eBook Overview

This standard work for practising dietitians and students has been revised to reflect the growing importance of nutritional support in many paediatric conditions and the numerous advances which have occurred since the first edition was published in 1994. Fully comprehensive and covering all disorders of the body systems relating to nutrition, it includes enteral and parenteral feeding, the nutrition and feeding of premature infants, diseases of organ systems, lipid disorders, nutrition for children with feeding difficulties, burns, obesity and failure to thrive.

The second edition has expanded the range of disorders and treatments described, with additional information on nutritional assessment, inborn errors of metabolism, food allergy and intolerance, immunodeficiency syndromes and gastroenterology. Arranged under headings of disorders of organ systems rather than type of diet, and with much information presented in tabular form, the manual is easy to use. Dietary restrictions due either to customs, religious beliefs or environmental conditions which may affect the nutritional adequacy of the diet of the growing child are also discussed.
