Do as I Do Are You a Good Role Model

Children learn their habits, attitudes, and beliefs about eating and physical activity as they watch and interact with you parent, older sibling, other caregiver. By mimicking you, they explore their world, try grownup behavior, and hope to please you. Whether you intend to or not, role modeling probably is the most powerful, effective way to help your child eat smart and move more.

Clinical signssymptoms

Refusal, back-arching, irritability and sleep disturbances have also been reported to be unrelated to GERD.61,62 Esophageal pain and behaviors perceived by the caregiver (usually the mother) to represent pain (e.g. crying and retching) potentially affect the response of the infant to visceral stimuli and the ability to cope with these sensations, either painful or non-painful.63 In addition, cow's milk allergy (CMA) may overlap with many symptoms of GER, and may coexist or complicate GERD in up to 40 of infants.64-66

Nutritional intervention

Energy expenditure by indirect calorimetry and total energy expenditure by the doubly labeled water method. Physical activity including chronic spasticity of children with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy was estimated from the ratio of total energy expenditure to resting energy expenditure. Control children were those children with adequate weight, adequate fat-free mass and fat mass, as well as children with a lower fat-free mass and a lower body fat mass. Measurements were made by triceps skin folds and arm circumference. An interesting observation in children with severe quadriplegic cerebral palsy who were expected to have extra energy demands for involuntary muscular work showed lower total energy expenditure and lower resting energy expenditure compared to well-nourished children with this handicap and to controls. Resting energy expenditure and activity energy expenditure (estimated as total minus resting energy expenditure) were both diminished, thus not supporting the...

Breast Feeding for a Backto Work Schedule

To continue breast-feeding, changing from maternity leave to a back-to-work schedule takes adjustment. Some moms express milk during their workday. In that way, their baby can have bottles of mother's milk when mom's away. Other moms breast-feed when they can be with their baby caregivers offer infant formula Select a caregiver for your baby who is supportive of breast-feeding. If your work schedule and the travel distance from work allow, schedule feeding visits with your baby during your breaks. Let the caregiver know when you'll arrive. In that way, your baby won't be fed too soon before your visits. To make it easier, choose a caregiver near your workplace. For the same reason, let the caregiver know when you'll pick up your baby after work. Together, schedule feedings so your baby won't eat too close to the end of your workday.

Off to a Healthy Start

New and experienced parents ask so many questions Wouldn't it be great for parents and other caregivers if newborns were delivered into their parents' arms with a how-to manual filled with feeding instructions Still, it's amazing how fast infant feeding becomes routine. However, as soon as babies and parents master one feeding stage, they're both ready to move on and learn the next.

Nutrition in the Second Year

The development of healthy eating skills is a shared responsibility parents and caregivers provide a selection of nutritious, age-appropriate foods, and decide when and where food is eaten toddlers decide how much they want to eat and, at times, even whether they eat (Satter, 1987). To encourage healthy eating skills, parents and caregivers have an obligation to recognize and respond appropriately to their toddler's individual verbal and non-verbal hunger cues (e.g. restlessness or irritability) and to satiety cues such as turning the head away, refusing to eat, falling asleep or playing (Satter, 1990). Infants can be encouraged to feed themselves at the beginning of a meal when they are hungry, but may need help if they tire later in the meal. Pressuring infants to eat by using excessive verbal encouragement (e.g. empty your bottle or cup or clean your plate) may lead to negative attitudes about eating, poor eating habits or excessive feeding that may foster excess weight gain...

Ethical Considerations for Care

It is strongly advised that those suspected with or diagnosed with HIV infection seek professional attention from a qualified physician and a registered dietician. For these caregivers, the development of new antiviral drugs, changes in methods of administration of existing drugs, and new information regarding nutrition require diligent and regular review. It is important for health care workers to keep an open dialogue with the patient, so that they stay aware of the patient's health status and treatment measures. Many issues regarding the amount (drugs and nutrition) and length of care for AIDS patients remain controversial and should be negotiated with the patient.

Looking Into The Future

Projections have been made that within our children's lifetime, 1 in every 45 Americans will be living with Alzheimer's disease (Brookmeyer et al., 1998) since women live longer than men, the majority of these will be women. This will present interesting and serious public health issues, since historically women have been the primary caregivers. Taking into account the current prevalence of AD in the U.S., and everything that is known about the progression of the disease, Brookmeyer et al. (1998) projected that even a modest 1- or 2-year delay in the onset of AD will have a significant impact on the prevalence of the disease in 50 years. These projections underlie the urgent need for continued research to identify the molecular mechanisms that increase one's risk for AD and other dementias, and in turn the mechanisms that underlie potential neuroprotection by factors such as soy isoflavones and other phytochemicals.

Executive Summary

The Canadian Paediatric Society Nutrition Committee, Dietitians of Canada and Health Canada collaborated on the preparation of this statement on nutrition for healthy term infants from birth to 24 months of age. This statement is intended for the use of health care professionals. It provides information that is basic to communicating consistent messages about infant nutrition to parents and caregivers across Canada. It is not designed, however to be an all-encompassing practical guide to infant feeding. The recommendations in this statement are based on available scientific evidence. However, many studies on infant nutrition are not based on randomized trials because they are neither possible nor ethical in many circumstances. In the absence of solid science, accepted practice and its rationale is presented. Throughout the document, we have attempted to clearly distinguish those recommendations based on science versus those based on common practice. A summary of the principles and...

Treatment options

Although total oral feeding may not be a realistic goal, it is the universal hope of caregivers. Professionals are obliged to point out prerequisites for oral feeding and to discuss the probability that an individual child may reach the goal. These management decisions are typically made on the basis of clinical observations and assessments. In addition, important information is obtained through an instrumental assessment by videofluo-roscopic swallow study. A methodical videofluoro-scopic swallowing study defines the anatomy of the oropahrynx detects dysfunction as evident by aspiration, poor clearance, or poor control of the bolus determines the mechanism responsible for the dysfunction and examines the short-term effects of the therapeutic strategies designed to eliminate or compensate for that dysfunction.53 Management decisions may incorporate nutritive recommendations, medical and surgical decisions, position guidelines, oral-motor swallowing practice and behavioral...

Diarrhea

Persistent and recurrent diarrheas are amongst the most frequent manifestations of HIV AIDS in both children and adults, especially in developing countries, where diarrhea is associated with growth failure, weight loss and death. In Zaire, 85 of adults admitted with persistent diarrhea had HIV infection.31 Among children presenting to a primary health care facility in South Africa, a history of persistent diarrhea in the preceding 3 months strongly predicted HIV infection (odds ratio 4.8 CI 2.5-9.3 and positive predictive value of 63 ). In South Africa, the profile of children admitted with diarrheal diseases has changed, with increasing prevalence of persistent diarrhea and loss of seasonal peaks of acute diarrhea. HIV-infected children admitted to hospital with diarrhea have more severe symptoms than children uninfected by HIV 32 they frequently have severe co-infections such as pneumonia, pseudomonal skin sepsis and tuberculosis (TB). These result in longer periods of admission and...

Diagnosis

The child's caregivers should also be questioned regarding associated symptoms such as oral aversion, weak sucking, irritable behavior, gagging and choking, and disruptions in breathing or apnea. Postural or positional change during feeding may be reported in children with dysphagia. Odynophagia and emesis may be related to pharyngeal and or esophageal disorders. A history of recurrent pneumonia may indicate chronic aspiration a history of stridor in relation to feeding may indicate a glottic or subglottic abnormality contributing to feeding disorders. Determining whether these symptoms occur before, during or after the swallow helps localize the affected phase.16,17

Escherichia coli

However, EPEC persists as an important cause of infantile diarrhea in many developing countries.31 In nursery outbreaks, transmission was thought to occur via the hands of caregivers and via fomites. In less developed countries, contaminated formula and weaning foods have been incriminated. Volunteer studies and epidemiological observations suggest that the infective dose for EPEC is high (approximately 109 colony-forming units (CFU)).32 EPEC causes a self-limited watery diarrhea with a short incubation period (6-48h). There may be associated fever, abdominal cramps and vomiting, and EPEC is a leading cause of persistent diarrhea (lasting 14 days or longer) in children in developing countries.33 Although few data exist to guide antibiotic therapy of EPEC diarrhea, administration of appropriate antibiotics seems to diminish morbidity and mortality. A 3-day course of oral, non-absorbable antibiotics such as colistin or gentamicin (if available) has been shown to be effective.34 Some...

Dietary Patterns

Toddlers and preschoolers spend more time eating at home than they do in school. Their food choices and food preferences are thus largely dependent on what their parents and caregivers provide. When children are young, their parents and families have greater control over what they eat. As they get older, however, what their friends eat in the school environment, and what is available to them in school and elsewhere, will have an impact on what they eat. According to Kweethai Neill, Tom Dinero, and Diane Allensworth, what children eat at school is dependent on many factors, including the cafeteria environment, peer pressure, administrative support, teacher participation, cafeteria staff, and the quality of food choices offered.

Macronutrients

Malnutrition may be defined as a state of nutrient deficiency or excess. This fact is often overlooked when providing nutrition, despite the fact that some of the adverse effects of nutrient excess are evident to everyone. Carbohydrate excess, for example, clearly may lead to a state of obesity, with the well-recognized risks of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and shorter life expectancy. What is less obvious is that carbohydrate excess in the critically ill patient may also result in liver damage and the inability to wean from ventilators.26 In Chapter 2 and Chapter 11, this will be discussed in greater detail. Other nutrients, such as vitamin A, have the potential for toxicity that is even less obvious but equally dangerous.3842 This is discussed in greater detail in Chapter 9. It is apparent that in providing nutrition to stimulate healing, the caregiver cannot assume that more is better.
