Nutrition plays a major role in maternal and child health, and it is widely considered that long-term health is based on optimum nutrition in early life. Maternal body composition, postnatal diet, and also what and how infants are fed are recognized important determinants for offspring-balanced development.
This Special Issue of Healthcare will focus on the relationship between nutrition and maternal and child health. The research topic is focused on (1) mother nutrition and its potential influence on human milk composition; (2) child nutrition in early stages of life, and its influence on health; (3) infant formulas; and (4) nutrigenomics. Issues related to food allergies, hypersensitivity, and obesity are also welcome. This can include original research and reviews, short reports, opinions from researchers, as well as epidemiological and animal studies.
