Pediatric nutrition is the maintenance of a proper well-balanced diet consisting of the essential nutrients and the adequate caloric intake necessary to promote growth and sustain the physiologic requirements at the various stages of a child's development. Pediatric nutritional needs vary considerably with age, level of activity, and environmental conditions and they are directly related to the rate of growth. Breast Feeding has important ingredients that are not found in any infant formula, to build the baby’s immune system. Pediatric nutrition must consist of essential Vitamins and Minerals which help for the growth and development. Proteins are the basic units required mainly for the construction of the body muscles and in all the metabolic activities of the body. To increase the calcium levels intake of dairy products are needed.

Breast Feeding has important ingredients that are not found in any infant formula, to build the baby’s immune system. Breast milk changes from feed to feed to suit each baby’s unique needs, making it the perfect food to promote healthy growth and development. Breast milk is uniquely suited to the human infant’s nutritional needs and is a live substance with unparalleled immunological and anti-inflammatory properties that protect against a host of illnesses and diseases for both mothers and children. Breastfed babies are less likely to be hospitalised. Production of breast milk will takes place in memory glands of the mother. The region in the gland where milk is produced is known as alveoli. It is the source of all valuable and essential nutrients that are helping an infant in its proper physical and mental growth and development. Breastfeeding helps keep baby healthy, protect them from diseases, allergies, helps in easy digestion, babies have little or no problem of constipation, diarrhea, upset stomach and also shows effect on gastrointestinal development.

Nutrition is an important part of the health of all children. It’s especially important for children getting cancer treatment to get the nutrients they need. Eating the right kinds of foods before, during, and after treatment can help a child feel better and stay stronger. Good nutrition is especially important when a child has cancer. Both cancer and its treatments may affect a child’s appetite, tolerance to foods, and their body’s ability to use nutrients. Eating the right kinds of foods before, during, and after treatment can help a child feel better and stay stronger.

A food allergy is an unusual response to a food caused by the body’s immune system. Allergic reactions to food can sometimes cause serious illness and even death. At that time, when IgE antibodies react with the food, histamines are released, which can cause your child to experience hives, asthma, itching in the mouth, trouble breathing, stomach pains, vomiting, and/or diarrhea. Some times food allergies lead to Skin problems also.

Childhood obesity is a complex health issue. It occurs when a child is well above the normal or healthy weight for his or her age and height. The main causes of excess weight depend upon behaviour and genetics. Behaviours can include dietary patterns, physical activity, inactivity, medication use, and other exposures. Pediatric obesity leads to dangerous diseases like Risk for Heart Diseases & Diabetes, High blood pressure and Bone problems etc.

Pediatric malnutrition may be defined as a pathological state resulting from inadequate nutrition, including under nutrition (protein-energy malnutrition) due to insufficient intake of energy and other nutrients like vitamins or minerals. Malnutrition in Pediatrics leads to many complications like Immune Implications, Growth Implications, Enteric infections and many other diseases.

Pediatric Malnutrition is caused by lack of nutrients in diet. This is either due to an inadequate diet or problems absorbing nutrients from food. It is a condition that causes lack of appetite and diseases such as cancer, liver disease, persistent pain or nausea. Malnutrition as a result of inadequate food intake is rare, although it may occur if a child is neglected, living in poverty or being abused. Malnutrition may also occur due to Genetic disorders, Eating Disorders and Thyroid Disease.

Diagnosis of infectious disease is nearly always initiated by medical history and physical examination in Pediatrics. More detailed identification techniques involve the culture of infectious agents isolated from a patient. Culture allows identification of infectious organisms by examining their microscopic features, by detecting the presence of substances produced by pathogens, and by directly identifying an organism by its genotype. Other techniques (such as X-rays, CAT scans, PET scans or NMR) are used to produce images of internal abnormalities resulting from the growth of an infectious agent. The images are useful in detection of, for example, a bone abscess or a spongiform encephalopathy produced by a prion.

Pediatric Nursing is the scientific and technological treatment of childhood which deals with the care of children from impregnation to adolescence in health care. The duties and goals of pediatric nurses include Child immunizations, Conducting physicals, Screening for disease, Prescribing medications, Diagnosing illnesses, Regulate the life of the child in the family home, school and community, Minimize the concussion of the child's unique condition, Foment maximal growth and development, Develop functional, realistic, and coordinated home care plans for the children and families. Pediatric Intensive Care provides care for infants, children and adolescents who become critically ill or injured which include the conditions like Poisoning, Severe infection, Trauma, Drug overdose, Congenital anomalies, Extensive surgery, Immunological disorders etc. Research in the field of pediatrics is more centralized on nutrient deficiencies, child psychology, pediatric obesity, pediatric critical care, pediatric genetic disorders, child health nursing, pediatric nutrition for a better healthcare.

An age-appropriate diet is one that provides adequate nutrition, is appropriate for a child's state of development, and can help prevent childhood obesity. A good diet is built on highly nutritious foods from each of the main food groups. There are several methods for evaluating a Pediatric diet including 3 day written diaries, food frequency checklists and kitchen inventories.
