Reseña del editor
Nutrition for Developing Countries
is both a textbook of nutrition - covering the essential facts about nutrients, nutrient needs, foods, ane meals - and at the same time a practical guide for nutrition workers - be they health workers, agricultural workers, home economists, or school teachers - or their trainers. It explains in clear simple language, and practical detail, how nutrition workers can help families with nutrition problems, how to treat malnourished children, and how to work in communities, and in schools. This information is not easily available elsewhere, and no other manual covers the subject so comprehensively. The manual is liberty illustrated, with many new drawings, as well as some from the old edition of the book.
This new edition of a popular and widely-used book brings the subject up-to-date, and takes it to a slightly more advanced level, and includes new ideas on working in and with communities, and about nutrition education. It includes many ideas for exercises for training nutrition workers. Nutrition for Developing Countries
fills the role of the first edition, and retains its simple approach, but covers the subject in greater depth and more widely.
