Nutrition and Growth: Yearbook 2017

Editor(s): .

It is now understood around the world that adequate nutrition is crucial for normal growth from infancy to adulthood.  Millions of children suffer from stunted growth because of malnutrition, which can affect not only height but also their cognitive development and thus their opportunities in life.  Although there is still much work to be done in researching the links between nutrition and growth, each year more in-depth studies are produced that are informing interventions and policy.  

In this third Nutrition and Growth yearbook, worldwide clinical experts summarize the latest research papers across many aspects of the topic, from the physiology and mechanism of growth, to obesity, chronic disease, early nutrition and stunting in developing countries.
