Synopsis: The publication of the Department of Health White Paper "The Health of the Nation" (1992) and "Our Healthier Nation" (1998) gave emphasis to the importance of nutritional health of the nation at all ages. It is clear that the achievement of specific targets for pregnancy and infancy as set out in the White Paper will involve the training of all health care professionals in nutrition education. This book responds to the challenge and focuses on good nutrition for and during pregnancy, in low birth-weight infants, and during infancy. It has a strong public health emphasis, dealing with health prevention issues for the Nation's younger population.
The text is written as a scientific reference book for those seeking to apply science in the support of a successful pregnancy and in the prevention of nutritional problems during foetal and early post-natal life. The importance of optimal nutrition during these periods of life is emphasised by the overwhelming evidence that nutritional problems in early embryonic life may cause congenital malformations and during late foetal life and early post natal life may set the molecular programme for later disease development.
From the Back Cover: Nutrition in Early Life is a comprehensive authoritative text providing an in -depth scientific basis for nutrition during prenatal, postnatal and childhood growth and development. The book is an up-to-date reference for all those seeking to understand the application of science in support of a successful outcome of the reproductive cycle. It has a strong public health emphasis, dealing with nutritionally related health promotion issues from the fetus to maturity. Additionally, the book includes key practical guidelines for good nutritional practice in chapter twelve.
