Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) — information on the uses, contraindications, and advantages/disadvantages of common herbs and supplements. Focus on Food Safety — important storage and preparation considerations for preventing food-borne illness. Health Promotion sections in each chapter emphasize the importance of health promotion and wellness as part of an effort to stress healthy lifestyle choices and prevention as the best "medicine." Websites of Interest at the end of every chapter lists reliable Internet resources for further study and exploration of various nutrition topics. Key terms are highlighted throughout the text with definitions on the same page for instant reference. Includes complimentary online access to Nutritrac 5.0, the latest version of Mosby’s premier nutrition and exercise management program that features over 1,000 new foods and enhanced functionality. Evidence-Based Practice boxes emphasize the importance of using research to achieve the best possible patient outcomes.

An in-depth discussion of childhood obesity explores the impact and prevention of this major health concern. Additional information on metabolic syndrome examines its effects on the cardiovascular system. Coverage of nutrition support includes the use of adapted feeding tools to aid patients in various disease states. Perspective in Practice boxes offer quick access to practical applications of nutrition principles.
