EARLY DETECTION OF FALTERING GROWTH DURING WEANING PERIOD COURSE
Exclusive breastfeeding provides optimal nutrition for infants until they are six months old. After six months, infants require complementary foods to meet their nutritional needs, which is when weaning begins. Weaning is the gradual process of introducing complementary foods to an infant’s diet while continuing to breastfeed. Nevertheless, being attributed to inadequate nutrient intake and lack of standardization in feeding practices, the growth faltering must be extensively documented in pediatric nutrition. This Course will deliver the assessment and management of faltering growth to provide adequate pediatric nutrition.
