NNIW86 - Protein in Neonatal and Infant Nutrition: Recent Updates

Editor(s): R Black, M. Makrides, K. Ong. 86

There are many global changes today that influence the health offuture generations; many arise from economic challenges and changes insocial and cultural norms. The most prevalent topic of discussion is thatof noncommunicable diseases, including obesity, diabetes and cardiovasculardisease. Yvan Vandenplas (Head of the Department ofPediatrics, Universitair Ziekenhuis Brussel) discussed the role of hydrolyzedproteins in infant feeding and the evidence-based benefits of its usein nonbreastfed babies at risk of allergy and infants with functional gastrointestinaldisorders.Raanan Shamir (Institute of Gastroenterology,Nutrition and Liver Diseases, Schneider Children’s MedicalCenter, Israel, and Professor of Pediatrics, Sackler Faculty of Medicine),focused on human milk and its potential alternatives in the feeding ofhealthy term infants. It was clearly stated that there is no comparablealternative to human milk. In a situation where breastfeeding is nolonger possible, the protein quality and quantity in the infant formula should be the decision-making factor in the choice of the right food forthat baby.Prof. Jatinder Bhatia (Professor and Chief ofthe Division of Neonatology, Department of Pediatrics, Georgia RegentsUniversity) talked about preterm infants, their nutrition needs andphysiological capacities to ingest adequate amounts of protein for appropriategrowth and development. There is still a lot of research work to bedone in this area, but it is very clear that proteins in the feeding of this categoryof infants play a critical role in both health outcome of these infantsas well as later in life.Download the brochure here
