This annotated bibliography on nutrition and adolescent pregnancy is intended to be a source of technical assistance for nurses, nutritionists, physicians, educators, social workers, and other personnel concerned with improving the health of teenage mothers and their babies. It is divided into two major sections. The first section lists selected articles and books to help providers develop or update their own knowledge base and skills. Subdivided into 15 topical areas, it includes physiological, psychosocial, and nutritional aspects of adolescent pregnancy, as well as assessment and counseling techniques and model service programs. Citations are primarily limited to peer-review journals and books published in North America, the majority of which were published between 1980 and 1985. Some earlier references are included for better understanding of recent literature or for their historical significance. The second section provides abstracts of educational materials that can be used by providers in educating and counseling pregnant adolescents. Cost and ordering information is provided for each entry. The materials are arranged in four categories: Teaching Tools for Nutritional Counseling, Self-Instructional Handouts, Posters and Films, and Curricula and Resource Manuals. Questionnaires and an evaluation tool are appended. (NB)
