This book is a well prepared outline of theories of nutrition as applied in the University Clinic in Vienna. Part one contains a brief discussion of theories of nutrition, while part two deals with their practical application (a) to healthy babies, (b) to healthy older children and (c) to sick children; the last chapter contains feeding formulas, diet lists and recipes.

Pirquet's "Nem" system of feeding is described in detail. His ideas regarding food-tolerance in infants are discussed at some length. There are many case reports given to illustrate the practical aspects of nutrition.
