Pediatric and Maternal Nutrition

Pediatric nutrition concentrates on the specific dietary needs of infants, children, and adolescents, catering to their growth and development. It addresses the nutritional requirements essential for building strong bodies and ensuring proper cognitive and physical development.

Maternal nutrition, on the other hand, revolves around the dietary needs of pregnant and breastfeeding women. It focuses on providing essential nutrients to support maternal health and the optimal growth and development of the developing fetus or infant. Adequate maternal nutrition is critical for the well-being of both mother and child, impacting the child's health in the short and long term. Maternal deficiencies of some micronutrients can affect the quality of breastmilk. These deficiencies can be avoided if the mother improves her diet before, during, and between cycles of pregnancy and lactation, or takes supplements.
