Public Health Nutrition

Essentials for Practitioners

Nutrition is a fundamental building block for optimal health. In this essential textbook, Jessica Jones-Smith presents readers with a balanced introduction to the field of public health nutrition. Examining common nutrition-related problems in both high- and low-income countries, Jones-Smith allows students to draw connections between the principles and realities of public health nutrition. She also describes the fundamental tools of public health nutrition, from nutrition assessment to program monitoring and evaluation, as well as current and future solutions for public health nutrition's most pressing issues.

Covering fundamental topics while helping students build the knowledge and skills foundational to public health nutrition research and practice, the book addresses

• nutrition surveillance
• dietary assessment methods
• program planning and program evaluation
• environmental and underlying determinants of nutrition-related diseases in high-, middle-, and low-income countries
• monitoring and evaluation in nutrition programs
• nutrition epidemiology
• community health assessment
• nutrition-related policies and programs, with a particular focus on WIC in the United States and cash transfer programs in low- and middle-income countries
• leading causes of disease and death
• obesity
• stunting
• nutrition transitions

The text also provides a much-needed resource for established researchers and practitioners of public health nutrition. Each chapter is authored by preeminent experts in the field, and the book includes aids for classroom learning, including case studies, learning objectives, and review questions. A rigorous introduction to foundational knowledge, Public Health Nutrition concludes with a discussion of current and future solutions for pressing health issues.

Endorsements

"With its unique emphasis on community, environmental, and global trends as reasons underlying nutrition decisions, choices, and behaviors, this book would be a nice fit within schools of public health, especially ones that have dedicated nutrition departments or a concentration in nutrition. It may also find a home in courses related to global health."

- Lisa M. Quintiliani, PhD, Boston University School of Medicine

"This book takes a deep dive into the applied practice of public health nutrition, addressing the current and important needs in the field that would equip public health professionals in nutrition to enter needed workforce leadership careers. The content will incorporate well into the teaching of public health nutrition courses, presentations, and workshops."
