These Nutrition Notes were prepared at the request of Dr. Laurence Finberg, formerly Chairman and Professor of Pediatrics of the Children's Medical Center of SUNY-Health Science Center of Brooklyn. "I think," he said, "you should tell medical students what they need to know about the scientific basis of pediatric nutrition." As the project developed, it became apparent:

Pediatric Nutrition Notes provide a beginning for understanding -- a foundation for learning.

The project was expanded to address how nutrition related problems unfold what language should be used to describe these problems, and how to develop a preliminary plan of action and obtain more information. We modify currently accepted Bloom's Taxonomy

         KNOWING -> UNDERSTANDING -> APPLYING.

Rather, we see, with John Dewey and his disciples that understanding develops from the interaction of factual knowledge with application.

         [KNOWING plus APPLYING] -> UNDERSTANDING

Do you need more? Yes, you do. There is an abundant literature in clinical nutrition that is available in the texts cited, other books, and in readily available journals to be found in libraries, and more recently, on the Internet. Nutrition Notes and the Teacher's Guide as a whole were developed to enhance rather than substitute for inquiry into the breadth of nutrition knowledge.
