Pediatric Nutrition in Chronic Diseases and Developmental Disorders

Prevention, Assessment, and Treatment

Second Edition

Edited by Shirley Walberg Ekvall and Valli K. Ekvall

This uniquely valuable resource helps readers translate research on nutrition in chronic diseases and developmental disorders of children into clinical practice. It provides a wealth of information on the nutritional implications of diseases' states; how nutrition can affect brain development, learning and behavior; and how to improve the health status of pediatric patients through nutritional measures. The Second Edition has been thoroughly updated and includes new chapters on botanicals, genetics and nutritional aspects of birth defects, vegetarianism, obesity/eating disorders, autism, and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, among other topics. A reviewer of the First Edition wrote that, "This work is without parallel." That remains true.
