One of the most respected nutrition life cycle texts in the higher education market, NUTRITION THROUGH THE LIFE CYCLE, Third Edition uses current research to explain the nutritional foundations necessary for the growth, development, and normal functioning of individuals in each stage of the life span. From preconception to the final stages of life, this text covers clinical and nutritional interventions for each part of the life cycle. The text is organized systematically, with clinical nutrition topics following normal nutrition topics. The text maintains a consistent level of pedagogy throughout, highlighting key nutrition concepts, nutritional needs, nutrition and health disease outcomes, model programs, and case studies. Featuring an expert author team, this text benefits from a broad range of normal and clinical nutrition expertise from registered dietitians and researchers.

The first chapter for each life cycle phase covers normal nutrition topics, and the following chapter covers nutrition-related "conditions and interventions."
Each chapter begins with a "Chapter Outline" and list of "Key Nutrition Concepts" to better prepare students to learn key concepts.
Case studies, featured throughout the text, illustrate theory in practice, making complex normal and clinical nutritional concepts both memorable and easy for students to grasp.
"Tables" and "Illustrations" are integrated throughout the text to segment the concepts being discussed, also making it easier for students to reference and review as they read and prepare for exams.
