THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF NUTRITION
While diagnosis and treatment will be specific to each condition, one common factor in addressing these conditions is nutrition.
For example, in the case of cerebral palsy, a condition where the part of the brain that is damaged can lead to impaired motor development. An assessment of the nutritional requirements and the means of ingestion are important, as normal eating may be difficult.6
At Nestlé Health Science, we are concerned with this and many other childhood and adult conditions. We are actively developing nutritional management strategies to address the needs of both young and older patients to improve their quality of life.
