Providing nutrition care is an integral part of providing care for a child, yet each child has unique needs for their age, co-morbidities, and social environment. This session will focus on improving clinician skills in providing nutrition care to pediatric patients across the age spectrum. 

A variety of challenging and timely topics will be discussed, including the impact of drug shortages on pediatric patients, micronutrient monitoring in patients with autism spectrum disorders, probiotic use in neonates, avoidant restrictive food intake disorder, patient and caregiver education, novel lipid emulsions, optimization of bone health, and nutrition in bone marrow transplant. Attendees will leave the session with insight into nutrition support topics for a variety of clinical scenarios and will be able to implement this knowledge to improve care for pediatric patients.
