Neonatal nutrition research Ð what do we need to know?
Alison Leaf, Mark Johnson
Nutrition in fetal life and early infancy influences long-term health, making it particularly important that nutrition is optimised at these early stages. Research needs to address all aspects of nutritional support: what and how much babies need, how and when to provide it, how to nurture the gut to enable nutrition and growth and how to ensure that all high-risk babies receive the best evidence-based nutritional care.
