General Paediatric Nutrition and Dietetics contains the evidence-based guidelines, protocols and procedures used by paediatric dietitians in the clinical setting.
In addition to nutrition information for the normally developing child, it covers nutrition in paediatric conditions with the potential to adversely affect growth and development including diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, coeliac disease, cerebral palsy and cystic fibrosis. It also offers information on adverse food reactions including allergies and intolerances, eosinophilic oesophagitis and FPIES. Sample PES statements are presented for each condition.
Complete nutrition profiles of feeds and formulae, for use in infants, children, and adolescents are included. The companies providing these products to the Australian market have been consulted to ensure profiles are accurate.
