Significantly revised and updated by more than 100 contributors, the eighth edition provides the latest evidence-based guidance on the full spectrum of childhood nutrition issues.

More than 50 chapters cover the latest information on nutrient metabolism to support the normal development and health of infants and children who are well, those born with congenital anomalies or disorders of metabolism, and those with acute and chronic illnesses.

Tables and figures in the chapters and appendixes are designed to provide a ready resource for a wide variety of topics that affect practice, including the nutrient content of selected foods, recommended daily nutrient requirements, the fortification and use of specialized infant formulas, and updated growth charts for preterm infants after birth, including body mass index.

New in the eighth edition:

  • • New chapter: Pediatric Global Nutrition.
  • • Other chapters have been completely revised and reorganized, based on new information in nutritional science and new evidence-based guidelines recommending changes in practice.
  • • New policy statement on sugary drinks and new clinical reports on food insecurity, fruit juice consumption, fish and shellfish consumption, and use of donor human milk for the preterm infant.
