Advanced Course in Pediatric Nutrition

... from -9(months) to 18(years old)!

Food and nutrition are fundamental to health and well-being at all stages of life, but it is during the pediatric age that they play a key role in promoting health and preventing numerous chronic diseases.

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” – said Frederick Douglass.

In fact, the most recent scientific evidence shows that the programming of the future health of the human being begins in the early stages of intrauterine development and is directly dependent on nutritional factors.

In this context, it is recognized that a woman’s nutritional status even before conception, converging with her diet throughout pregnancy and during breastfeeding, is crucial to provide her child with the necessary nutrients to reach the maximum potential at adult age. The same impact on the maximum expression of the potential for growth plus physical and cognitive development, and on the individual modulation of the risk of chronic diseases in adults, have eating habits established in early childhood and consolidated until the end of adolescence.

The Advanced Course in Pediatric Nutrition aims to train health professionals with tools for adequate nutritional guidance and monitoring of pregnant women, lactating women, children and adolescents. More than a supplemental course, this course portrays the challenge for all of those who wish to know more on how nutrition influences the health of future generations.

Welcome to Academia Clínica Espregueira!

OBJECTIVES

  Entrust students with technical-scientific knowledge in the field of nutrition and food during preconception, pregnancy and lactation, as well as in the first years of life, throughout childhood and adolescence;

  Identify the recommendations and benefits of breastfeeding, artificial and mixed;
  Understand the complexity of the matters of evaluation, diagnosis and nutritional intervention in pediatric age;

Description

BY ATTENDING THIS COURSE, YOU WILL BE BETTER BECAUSE:

Genes are interlocutors and an opportunity for dialogue with the environment. The plasticity of the genome is an extraordinary fact. Inspired by the course program and the work of Randy L. Jirtle, we invite you to appreciate the teaching content we propose and what the memories of the knowledge journey can do in the professional exercise of guidance and nutritional monitoring of pregnant women, lactating women, children and teenagers. The genotypic-environmental interaction – the dialogue – begins with the beginning of life. We started the conversation, i.e., the technical-scientific discussion, from the meeting of sparks of life, gametes throughout adolescence. Food planning, designed to match and go beyond metabolism, paired with development and growth, is a determinant of well-being and health. It will interfere in favour or against the probability of certain chronic diseases or in the full phenotypic expression of the most varied parameters of development and growth. Everyone will easily see existing associations between dietary intervention and the optimization of physical, motor, mental and socio-emotional expression. Thus, with this course, led by a team of nutritionists who combine a noteworthy academic and professional background, students will benefit, objectively and pragmatically, from a transforming impact on professional practice and, inherently, people and society.
