Early Years Nutrition and Healthy Weight

Early Years Nutrition and Healthy Weight focuses on the early years of childhood as a key period in which eating and exercise habits are formed. Combining current evidence with practical advice, an international group of health specialists advise on the avoidance and management of childhood obesity. They look at key risk areas such as early sedentary behaviour, parental influences and underlying medical causes, and also investigate practical interventions including advice during pregnancy, parenting strategies, and prevention during pre-school and the early school years. This practical handbook contains vital information and advice for all nutritionists and dietitians working with young children and families. It will also be a valuable text for health visitors, paediatricians and general practitioners, and students of nutrition and dietetics specialising in paediatric nutrition. Key features: * Only practitioner handbook dedicated to the early years of childhood as the key to ensuring healthy weight in later life * Covers pregnancy through to pre-school and early school years interventions * Also addresses the social and psychological issues that underpin nutritional problems * International group of expert authors consider the issue across the developed world * Case studies in each chapter illustrate the application of theory to practice
