Nutrition in the early years of a child's life has a major impact on growth, health and development. Health-care practitioners working in the community play a key role in ensuring that adequate nutrition is provided and risk factors are identified. This book provides practical guidelines to enable health-care professionals to give correct and consistent advice to parents and carers of those under five years of age, and to those children at risk of nutritional inadequacy. The text is divided into three parts based on age ranges: Newborn; 1-3 years; and Pre-school. Each part is subdivided into clearly defined sections that cover the child's nutritional development, including breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, feeding problems, childhood illnesses, dental health and food safety. Vegetarian requirements and ethnic minority diets are also covered. Each chapter is set out in a clear and accessible format with the use of plans and bullet points.
