Enteral nutrition has evolved immensely in recent years, such as in feeding approaches and products. With this, more patients with pediatric chronic conditions have improved prognosis and life expectancy. Improving nutritional status has not only allowed for survival, but has also enhanced the patient’s health and quality of life. This symposium featured Prof. Frederic Gottrand, Prof. Valerie Marchand, and Dr. Graeme O’Connor, discusses details of weaning patients from enteral nutrition, new evidence on whether real food-based nutrition may improve tolerance to enteral nutrition in children, and new trends in using real-food based formula in different conditions as seen in practical clinical cases in the UK.
