Written essentially as a student text, this book offers a concise overview and critical analysis of the nutritional aspects of health promotion. Assuming little biochemical knowledge on the part of the student, it marries two topical and expanding subject areas: nutrition and health promotion. Its coverage includes food selection and classification, energy balance, nutrients, nutrition and the human life cycle, educational guidelines and food safety. Its aim is to cover the whole field of nutrition, including the social and cultural aspects, nutritional epidemiology and food-borne disease. The author discusses and evaluates current nutritional and educational guidelines, and uses both UK and US terms, standards and data.

Geoffrey P. Webb, Senior Lecturer in Nutrition, University of East London.Review:
..an extensive and ambitious textbook with the broad aim of covering all aspects of nutrition. This is a book with tremendous breadth and gives a discursive treatment to the subject area, which is often lacking in similar nutritional texts. As such, it succeeds in 'bringing the subject to life.'
Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics.
This is a high quality, well researched and structured text and the author writes in such a way as to make complex nutritional concepts easily accessible to students with a limited knowledge of science. This book should be available to pre- and post- qualifying nursing students undertaking nutritional and health educational components of a course. It is also likely to be of great value as a reference text to primary care practitioners who are involved in advising patients or clients on aspects of nutrition.
