Nutrition and growth Yearbook 2020

Berthold Koletzko, Raanan Shamir, Dominique Turck, Moshe Phillip

Children’s growth is a common concern to all health care providers treating neonates, infants, toddlers, children, and adolescents. Defining the best nutrition for healthy and active children as well as for those who suffer from acute or chronic disease, considering subgroups defined by age or other relevant determinants, is relevant to the child, his care givers, and to health care providers dealing with the pediatric age group. In the present Nutrition and Growth Yearbook, an international group of experts in nutrition, metabolism, gastroenterology, endocrinology, and auxology joined together to select for our readers some of the important manuscripts published between July 1, 2018, and June 30, 2019, dealing with issues related to children’s growth, especially those manuscripts that deal with the interaction between nutrition and growth.
