Pediatric Nutrition

Pediatric nutrition considers the dietary needs of infants to support growth and development, including changes in organ function and body composition. Decisions parents make about nutrition and feeding their infants have short- and long-term effects on the babies' subsequent growth and development. Infectious disease and chronic digestive disease can be reduced with good nutrition choices such as breastfeeding. Breastfed infants have better overall health, so choices about pediatric nutrition are important considerations.
