Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Pocket Guide to Children with Special Health Care and Nutritional Needs

Spiral bound
Any health care professional who manages the nutrition care of children with special health care needs, such as Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy or gastrointestinal disorders, needs this pocket guide. Children with these conditions have more frequent problems that may alter their growth, diet, feeding and eating behaviours. This easy-to-use reference presents the most current, interdisciplinary research and evidence-based information available on nutrition management of children with special needs. Its co-editors, affiliated with the Behavioral Health Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group and Pediatric Nutrition Practice Group, bring a wealth of knowledge to the guide.
