Infants admitted to neonatal intensive care units (very preterm and extremely preterm, term infants with HIE, term infants with surgical gut conditions) are at high-risk of suboptimal nutrition. They are at increased risk of poor growth and neurodevelopment in subsequent life. Improved enteral nutrition has been associated with better weight gain and improved neurocognitive outcomes in infancy , childhood and adolescence. This presentation aims to assess advances in enteral nutrition strategies across the different high-risk infant groups to highlight new research and optimize clinical care.
