In the Primarily Professional section of the NCES catalog, we focus on many topics and trends that dietitians face on a daily basis. One of those topics is how to choose the right foods for each person’s situation. The two books highlighted below are a couple that we’ve added over the last year that we think are great for dietitians and consumers alike.

Flavorful Fortified Food Recipes to Enrich Life: Many individuals need high calorie and high protein foods due to low body weight, diminished appetites, inability to eat adequate amounts of food, and drink enough fluids. Changes in taste and smell due to illness, side effects of medications or the aging process exacerbate the problems, resulting in decreased intake and subsequent weight loss. By providing comfort foods, care givers in the home or healthcare communities are able to create meals that satisfy even the most demanding palate, resulting in improved intake and cost savings.
