Pediatric nutrition takes into account an infant's dietary requirements for growth and development, as well as changes in organ function and body composition. Pediatric nutrition refers to the consumption of a well-balanced diet that includes all of the essential nutrients as well as enough calories to support growth and physiologic requirements at various stages of a child's development. The nutritional needs of newborns, children, and adolescents are covered by paediatric nutrition. Pediatric nutrition refers to food for children from birth to the age of eighteen. Lack of nutrition, particularly during important phases of growth, leads to abnormal development or disease, such as anaemia from iron deficiencies or scurvy from vitamin C insufficiency. Nutrition has a significant impact on the development of children, for better or worse. Children's growth and development are aided by good nutrition, allowing them to reach their full potential.
