Both childhood and adolescence are particularly important periods for an individual’s growth and development, during which energy and nutrient needs increase, but at health levels compared to adulthood. Lack of nutritional quality in childhood and adolescence contributes to the development of risk factors, which favor the appearance of chronic diseases in adulthood (obesity, diabetes, dyslipidaemia, bone problems, and even psychological problems). Thus, prevention during this period is a Public Health requirement. Childhood and adolescence are suitable times to encourage healthy eating habits that suit the new lifestyles of this population group.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to the nutrition in child and adolescent. This Special Issue represents an effort to capture current developments in this field and to provide a forum for cutting-edge contributions to the literature.
