The Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD), comprising Crohn disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), feature chronic gut inflammation with disruption of normal gut function. Weight loss can occur during active disease, especially in CD. Children and adolescents with IBD in particular may have comprised weight gains, linear growth, and pubertal delay. Various micronutrient deficiencies may occur in IBD: these include vitamin D and iron. Dietary factors likely contribute to the pathogenesis of IBD and may be important in the increasing incidence of IBD seen in recent years. Furthermore, dietary interventions play important roles in the induction and maintenance of remission, with exclusive enteral nutrition now established as a key therapy, especially in children and adolescents with active CD. This special issue will include topics related to the nutritional impact of CD and UC, and the role diet plays in the etiology and management of these conditions.
