81st Nestle Nutrition Institute Workshop - Low Birth Weight Baby, Born Too Soon or Too Small

Magaliesburg, South Africa 30 March 2014 - 2 April 2014

Summary

Every year, more than 30 million babies are born with low birth weight (LBW; <2500g), which makes them more vulnerable to short- and long-term adverse outcomes.

The 81st Nestlé Nutrition Institute Workshop brought together world class scientists in the area of neonatal care, epidemiology and nutrition management of low birth weight infants. Throughout the three-day workshop, participants heard from leading experts on the latest scientific evidence on catch up and growth acceleration, the short and long term consequences of Low Birth Weight Babies and the importance of different nutrition approaches in the management of LBWB.
