Nutritional Requirements of Infants and Young Children Summary

Nutritional Requirements of Infants and Young Children by Joyce Thompson

This work provides practical guidelines to enable health care professionals to give correct and consistent advice to parents and carers of the under-fives, and identify those children at risk of nutritional inadequacy. Nutrition in the early years of a child's life has a major impact on growth, health and development and also influences adult health. Health care practitioners working in the community play a key role in ensuring that adequate nutrition is provided and risk factors are identified. The text is divided into three parts based on age ranges: newborn, one - three years and pre-school. Each part is sub-divided into sections which cover the child's nutritional development including breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, feeding problems, child illnesses, dental health and food safety. Vegetarian requirements and ethnic-minority diets are also covered.
