"Nutrition Practices" is an authoritative guide planned as an aid to administrators of public health departments. Its purpose is to assist them to incorporate adequate nutrition service into the public health program. Suggestions are given for determining the need and opportunities for nutrition education in the community; integrating nutrition into such other units of the health department as maternal and child health, geriatrics, and tuberculosis; and evaluating the effectiveness of the program.

The guide was prepared by a committee of nutrition researchers and teachers, consultants, and state and local health administrators under the chairmanship of Dr. Daniel Bergsma, New Jersey State Health Commissioner.
