The Toddler Who Is Falling Off the Growth Chart

Valérie Marchand et al. Paediatr Child Health.

Abstract

Growth monitoring is an essential part of paediatric health care, from birth through adolescence. Growth and nutritional problems often occur between 18 months and three years of age. Health care professionals involved in the care of children need to follow growth closely in this period, be able to evaluate a toddler whose growth seems to be faltering, and know when and how to intervene.

Keywords: Appetite; Growth; Nutritional intervention; Toddler.
