Intersections of Nutrition: Retracing Yesterday, Redefining Tomorrow

Nutrition over the past 100 years has brought about a wealth of new information that has shifted the focus from nutrition of the child as an individual, to the community and the environment. As we navigate towards solving the pertinent malnutrition problems, we look back at the history of pediatric nutrition research and look forward to the emerging new fields of studies—from the forms of malnutrition, more insights on the microbiome, HMOs and components of human milk, nutritional genomics, to dietary patterns and development of food preferences and how these may relate to future health—that aim to make an impact towards a healthier future.
