Nutrition for Developing Countries

Third Edition

Edited by Felicity Savage King, Ann Burgess, Victoria J. Quinn, and Akoto K. Osei

  • Drawn from the experiences of an international editor team with extensive field experience.
  • Explains in clear simple language, and practical detail, how nutrition workers can help families with nutrition problems, including many ideas for exercises for training nutrition workers.

New to this Edition:

  • Fully revised and updated to include important developments in the area of nutrition, including the rise in 'non-communicable diseases' in the developing world, new understanding of the links between nutrition and HIV/AIDS, and the realisation of the prime importance of the first 1000 days of life.
  • The new edition covers in more detail, the nutrition-related management of non-communicable diseases; how to feed children exposed to HIV and people with HIV/AIDS; the essential nutrition actions that improve health and survival, and the strategies that reach key target groups (e.g. women and children under two) during critical times during the life-cycle; and optimal nutrition practices for girls and women.
