World-renowned experts gathered to review the synergy between childhood nutrition and growth.
Highlights from the Growth Summit include:
• Nature vs nurture – what controls childhood and adult stature?
• Optimal growth depends on adequate supplies of energy as well as Type I and Type II nutrients.
• Infants need a healthy gut for optimal growth and development.
• What’s new for practicing clinicians who use nutrition to optimize growth in infants and children?
The Growth Summit and its related Growth Ambassador program aim to advance pediatric nutrition science and practice, in turn helping each child reach his or her optimal growth potential.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Breastfeeding is best for babies and is recommended for as long as possible during infancy.
