Complete access to Navigate 2 Essentials is included with every new copy. The fifth edition of Samour and King's Pediatric Nutrition in Clinical Care offers a complete overview of the nutritional elements of pediatric clinical care, beginning with neonates and continuing through adolescents, as well as all pediatric illnesses that have an impact on nutrition. This text, which has been a reliable resource for more than twenty years, provides comprehensive coverage of nutrition assessment and care, as well as detailed coverage of normal growth, relevant illness states, and medical nutrition therapy. The Fifth Edition has been broadened to encompass growing areas in pediatric nutrition, such as malnutrition related to undernutrition, nutrition focused physical exam, integrative medicine, and more. This is in addition to the significant revisions that have been made in all of the key areas of pediatric nutrition. Students and practitioners alike will be able to discuss the nutrition guidelines associated with normal growth and development when they make use of the text. Additionally, they will be better able to determine medical nutrition therapy interventions for children who are suffering from diseases, injuries, genetic disorders, and weight issues.
