97th Nestlé Nutrition Institute Workshop - Intersections of Nutrition: Retracing Yesterday, Redefining Tomorrow
What we feed our children today will determine their growth, lifestyle, preferences, health outcomes at a later age. It is therefore imperative that children are given the opportunity of best nutrition possible from conception till growing up years. Hence the field of pediatric nutrition has grown extensively over the decades in terms of discoveries, research and trends. It is interesting how the focus of nutrition science has moved from nourishing the child as an individual, to the child as part of the community and now to the child and the environment.
