Growth Faltering & Physical Development, Dr. Cathriona Monnard

Early life is a critical foundational period to establish long term health outcomes and we know that good nutrition during this time is vital not just for physical growth, but also for optimal brain development.

In an effort to understand the consequences and the guidelines for dealing with children experiencing suboptimal growth, we have started a series that will focus on Growth Concerns in childhood.

Our first speaker is Dr Cathriona Monnard, registered dietitian and Specialist in Infant Nutrition & Physiology NR Lausanne Switzerland. Dr Monnard will discuss

  • What is healthy growth?
  • What is growth faltering?
  • The UK NICE care pathway for children experiencing faltering growth.
