Presentation Slides

In this section you will be able to download slides which summarize key information from specific topics in nutrition. These short, user-friendly and practical presentations are an overview based on various scientific resources. They are made available for use on presentations, training and self-learning. 

Nutrition for Preterm and Low Birth Weight Infants

More than 1 in 10 of the world’s babies are born prematurely and the rates are increasing, both in developed and developing countries. Developmental immaturity in preterm infants impacts several organs and systems, which can lead to long-term consequences for health, growth and development. Preterm infants have distinct physiological characteristics compared to term infants, which result in high and unique nutritional needs. Adequate nutrition at this stage is crucial to meet the preterm infant needs for proper growth and development.

When to Use Partial Whey Hydrolysates

Protein play a crucial role in the growth and development of children. The size of protein influences on its allergic potential and digestibility. This presentation covers the characteristics of different protein hydrolysates, as well as the potential benefits of partial whey hydrolysates on risk reduction of allergic diseases and on the improvement of some functional gastrointestinal disorders

Early infant feeding and long-term consequences (obesity)

High protein intake in early stage of life is associated with accelerated weight gain during infancy and early childhood, which is a strong predictor of childhood and adult obesity. After birth, promotion of breastfeeding beyond 6 months is important to prevent excessive weight gain during infancy. This presentation focus on the impact of high protein intake in infancy on long term health.

What are human milk oligosaccharides?: basic science

Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs) are the third most abundant component of human milk. Originally HMOs were discovered because of their prebiotic effect. Science evolved and currently it is already known that their effects go beyond the bifidogenic one, benefiting infants in many different ways. In this presentation you will find information about basic science and potential benefits of HMOs.

Human milk oligosaccharides: clinical studies

Some types of Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs) are now commercially available and are being added to infant formula. This presentation compiles the main results of the 3 clinical studies done with infant formulas with addition of one HMO (2’-fucosyllactose – 2’FL) or 2 HMOs (2’FL and lacto-N-neotetraose – LNnT).
