Key Nutrients Crucial for Older Infants' Development

Journal of Nutrition Highlights Advances in Infant Feeding Over Past 25 Years

ATLANTA, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Nancy Krebs, M.D., a professor of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and former Chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Committee on Nutrition, it can be difficult to meet the nutritional needs of older infants. Since human milk alone is no longer adequate to meet infant nutritional requirements after 6 months of age, complementary foods are crucial.  In a report featured in the February 2007 edition of Journal of Nutrition, Krebs concludes that in older infants, meat could be a critical complementary food for providing recommended zinc and iron levels.

"Meats and liver provide a nutrient profile meeting the iron and zinc needs of the older breastfed infant," Krebs states, "that is not easily provided by plant-based diets or in the absence of food fortification or nutrient supplements."

The report features Krebs and other international and U.S. nutrition experts who presented at the American Society for Nutrition at Experimental Biology meeting on April 5, 2006. The special session, Advances in Meeting the Nutritional Needs of Infants Worldwide*, highlighted achievements and challenges in infant nutrition and health outcomes over the past 25 years. These experts underscored the importance of nutrition throughout infancy as well as the benefits of human milk and the advances in infant formulas including the addition of important nutrients like taurine, carnitine, nucleotides, and long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids.
