About this title

Synopsis:

Bone health is one of the most widely discussed topics in pediatric nutrition. Ensuring adequate calcium and vitamin D intake is essential, and other factors also play a significant role. Bone Health in Children explores the recent decades of research and public commentary on the subject, debunks popular myths, and clarifies the often confusing and contradictory scientific literature. Presenting practical and theoretical education and advice, the book provides rational and accessible information geared to a wide audience of individuals interested in this critical element of pediatric health.

Highlights include:

  • The Institute of Medicine process by which Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) are developed
  • Iron, calcium, and vitamin D requirements for infants, children, and pregnant and lactating women
  • Controversy over high-dose vitamin D supplementation and pregnancy
  • Detailed explanation of the scientific research process related to human nutrition
  • The nonbone health aspects of vitamin D and why literature claims about this topic can be misleading
  • Frequently Asked Questions regarding nutrition with answers in short format

Providing a solid understanding as to how dietary guidelines are developed and evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of their underlying data, this volume answers practical questions crucial for choosing diets for children while also delving into the more theoretical aspects of conducting and interpreting medical research.
