‘It is an essential companion to any health professional caring for infants, children and adolescents, both for those with expertise in nutrition, but also for those whose expertise lies in other areas. … The editor and contributor authorship of this text is hugely impressive as they originate from all areas of the world and have impressive reputations within the field of paediatric nutrition.’

Lisa White
British Journal of Hospital Medicine

'This book serves as an excellent reference to support and update the pediatric practitioner, highlighting the critical role of balanced nutrition in health and disease at the various stages of childhood. It also outlines the impact of nutrition during these early phases of metabolic plasticity on lifelong health outcomes. The contributions also emphasize important aspects of population nutrition and manage to give a keen perspective on nutritional challenges across the globe in an engaging and concise fashion.'

Sari A. Acra
A practical reference guide
There is no other time in life when the provision of adequate and balanced nutrition is of greater importance than during infancy and childhood. During this dynamic phase characterized by rapid growth, development and developmental plasticity, a sufficient amount and appropriate composition of nutrients both in health and disease are of key importance for growth, functional outcomes such as cognition and immune response, and the metabolic programming of long-term health and well-being.
This compact reference text provides concise information to readers who seek quick guidance on practical issues in the nutrition of infants, children and adolescents. After the success of the first edition, which sold more than 50'000 copies in several languages, the editors prepared this thoroughly revised and updated second edition which focuses again on nutritional challenges in both affluent and poor populations around the world. Serving as a practical reference guide, this book will contribute to further improving the quality of feeding of healthy infants and children, as well as enhancing the standards of nutritional care in sick children.
