One of the most important aspects that makes any peer review journal a success is the quality of its peer reviewers. Without a doubt, the reviewers for The Journal of Child Nutrition and Management provide quality contributions that make the Journal a success. The individuals listed below were instrumental in making my transition to editor go smoothly. They willingly responded to requests from me, as well as the former editor, to review manuscripts submitted to the Journal during the 2021 year. The understanding by reviewers of research methodology and operational aspects of child nutrition programs is essential to ensuring articles published in The Journal of Child Nutrition and Management are credible resources of research or evidence to support informed decision-making useful in all aspects of child nutrition.
