Front Cover
CRC Press, Apr 24, 1996 - Health & Fitness - 320 pages
Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Health in Early Life is a complete and thorough compilation of scientific information on the growth of young children - much of it previously unavailable. This breakthrough book describes changes in functional, motor, and sensomotor development in young children as related to somatic growth, body composition, and nutrition. Packed with original experimental data derived from repeated cross-sectional and longitudinal studies, the book presents results that can be used as reference standards. Human studies are supplemented by data from experimental animal models to provide in-depth information on many difficult research areas.
Specifically, Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Health in Early Life analyzes the impact of environment, exercise, diet, and prenatal factors on body composition, fat distribution, dietary intake, and blood lipid levels in children 3 to 6 years of age. It also reviews functional development in marginally and severely malnourished and obese children. Written by a leading nutrition researcher who has worked in the field for more than twenty years, this monumental resource provides today's research standards for investigating the complex physical development of young children.
