Pediatric Nutrition and Obesity

Breast milk offers the best nutrition during these first months of growth when compared to other foods. Breastmilk helps in preventing anemia, obesity, diabetes and sudden infant death syndrome; and it promotes immunity, digestive health, and intelligence. Breastfeeding is hardly contraindicated, but it is not suggested for mothers being treated for tuberculosis, cancer, substance abuse, HIV and leukemia.

Proper infant nutrition demands essential substances (minerals, vitamins, proteins or fluids) that support organ growth, development, function, and resistance to infections and diseases.

Infants must breastfeed for the first six months of life to attain all necessary developments and growth. So to fulfill all the nutritional requirements infants must receive sufficient adequate nutrition and digestible foods, continuing to breastfeeding up to 2 years or more.
