Caring for children with nutritional disorders

The Nutrition Care Program at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin specializes in the care of children with nutritional disorders that range from failure to thrive to feeding disorders to intestinal failure.

Common cases include children with poor weight gain and other disorders of growth who need to be treated using a combination of nutritional and medical therapies. Children with feeding disorders have difficulties taking enough food by mouth in order to grow well and these children can benefit from nutritional and medical therapies.

Our Nutrition Care Program is headed by Dr. Praveen Goday, an expert in the world of pediatric nutrition with several journal articles, book chapters and the editor of a textbook on pediatric critical care nutrition.
