Nutrition Information to Help Children Grow and Develop
Parents are often concerned about their children's nutrition. And for good reason. Many of the foods for children are full of empty calories— not the smart nutrition that parents—or you—want for kids.
Using the Child Nutrition Center
Our Child Nutrition Center can help you guide parents as they deal with common child nutrition issues. From information about dehydration due to diarrhea and vomiting to details about nutrition for children who cannot tolerate soy or protein hydrolysate formulas, this section can answer important nutrition questions.
Here too, you'll find general information about our oral and enteral feeding products and which options are better suited to meet your patients' supplemental or sole source nutritional requirements.
To help you address specific nutritional needs for chronic conditions, such as severe food allergies, short bowel syndrome, or protein maldigestion, please visit our gastrointestinal information section
A Proud Participant in the WIC® Program
We at Abbott Nutrition strive to ensure that mothers receive the support they need to give their children nutritious food no matter what their particular life circumstances are. That is why we are fully committed to the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC). This federal program serves women who are pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding, as well as infants and children up to the age of five. WIC was designed to provide nutrition education, supplemental foods, and referrals for health and social services to women and children who are economically disadvantaged and nutritionally at risk.

The child growth charts
in this section are excellent tools to share with parents. They help track a child's height, weight, and other measures that parents are eager to know about.
You can help reassure parents that growth trends over many visits are more accurate indicators of overall health than results from any single visit. Use our growth charts as a reference point to give parents solid measurements of their children's progress as they grow from children into adolescents.
