This book focuses on a crucial moment in human life: the introduction of solid foods to the diet during late infancy and early childhood. The impact on health and development as well as the long-term effects and prevention of disease are analyzed by a panel of leading international experts.
The immediate consequences of solid foods on the health of toddlers are studied with regard to allergic diseases, diarrhea and constipation. The late effects of weaning habits, such as obesity, diabetes, and the early influences on taste preferences are also dealt with in this publication. Each of the topics is introduced by a chapter on physiology, followed by further contributions on major clinical aspects. Finally the book offers educational recommendations for industry, physicians and parents, underlining the values of a diversified diet.
Pediatricians, dieticians, nutritionists and researchers will find this book a reliable reference and valuable tool for their work.
