Preterm infants have a high risk of malnutrition, poor growth and poor health outcomes. Updated, recommendations for enteral nutrition of preterm infants will be issued from the ESGPHAN and key highlights of this guidelines is the focus of the lecture from Prof. Magnus Domellöof.
Gut microbiota plays an important role in the health of infants. Breastfed term infants have a gut microbiota that is dominated by bifidobacteria, whereas formula-fed infants have a more heterogeneous composition.
The human microbiome contains over 10 trillion microbial cells that contribute to disease, health and wellness. In this webinar, Dr. Mark DeLegge defines the role of the gut microbiome as it relates to enteral feeding through the stages of healthcare, highlighting environmental and nutritional effects from critical illness to long term care.
The NNI Symposium at 8th International Conference on Nutrition and Growth 2021 on “Children are what they eat: Shaping their growth & immunity” presented information about impact of nutrition on shaping the gut microbiome and the immune system in the first years of life.
A healthy diet during the first 1000 days for the mother and the young child has been shown to have a positive impact on the immune system.
Early life gut microbiome maturation is characterized by a temporal acquisition, colonization, and selection of microbes with different functionalities.
