With the major advancements in enteral nutrition, such as in feeding approaches and products, more patients with pediatric chronic conditions have improved prognosis and life expectancy where nutritional support became a cornerstone in supportive care. Improving nutritional status has not only allowed for survival, but has also enhanced the patient’s health and quality of life. This symposia featuring Prof. Frederic Gottrand, Prof. Valerie Marchand, and Dr. Graeme O’Connor, discusses the specifics 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.
