What you'll learn

There is no other time in life when the provision of appropriate nutrition is of greater importance than during infancy and childhood. As this phase of life is characterized by rapid growth and development, an adequate amount and composition of substrates both in health and disease are of key importance for growth, functional outcomes, and long-term wellbeing. read more »»

Nutritional status affects every patient’s response and health to illness. Good nutrition is important for achieving normal growth and development. Nutrition services are important in the prevention of disabilities as well as in the treatment and/or rehabilitation of patients with chronic illness. Malnutrition in pediatric patients as well as pregnant women may negatively affect long-term growth and development. Nutritional assessment should, therefore, be an integral part of the care for every patient.

A comprehensive nutrition assessment that includes food and nutrition-related history, anthropometric measurements, biochemical data, medical tests and procedures, nutrition-focused physical findings, and patient history should be completed on these patients as no one parameter is a comprehensive indicator of nutrition status.
