Nutrition in Pediatrics provides a comprehensive and accessible approach to pediatric nutrition. The field of pediatric nutrition has developed into an area essential to the components of academic pediatric programs throughout the world. Fundamental aspects of health and disease are strongly related to the nutritional environment (nutritional status and dietary intake).

The fifth edition of Nutrition in Pediatrics: Basic Science, Clinical Applications continues the expansion of the section on pediatric obesity: epidemiology, pathophysiology, assessment and treatment. New chapters include celiac disease, food allergies, iron, and expanded chapters on international nutrition, including focused chapters on nutrition in low- and middle-income countries.

The text is divided into seven sections: General Concepts in Pediatric Nutrition, Physiology and Pathophysiology, Perinatal Nutrition, Obesity, Nutrition in Low- and Middle-Income Countries, Nutritional Aspects of Specific Disease States, and Approach to Nutritional Support.

Part I: General Concepts
Part II: Physiology and Pathophysiology
Part III: Perinatal Nutrition
Part IV: Obesity
Part V: Infant and Young Child Feeding in Low- and Middle-Income Countries
Part VI: Nutritional Aspects of Specific Disease States
Part VII: Approach to Nutritional Support
