Nutrition and Feeding of Infants and Toddlers
Abstract: A reference text containing 12 overview papers presents information and guidelines on the infant feeding techniques along with the associated behavioral and nutritional implications. Following a review of the history of infant feeding and the feeding experience, the text explores practical and scientific issues related to infant feeding and examines breast and formula feeding, the nutritional requirements of infants, and infant feeding in cases of diseases and disorders (e.g., obesity, failure to thrive). Particular attention is given throughout the text to the ways in which nutritional needs change as each developmental stage is reached. Infants at nutritional risk, nutritional status assessment, and home total parenteral feeding also are covered. Data and informational tables and photographs supplement the text. Reference data (e.g., recommended nutrient intakes, growth charts, therapeutic diets, drug-nutrient interactions, drugs in breast milk, food composition) and resource information are given in 11 appendices.
