Example text

A regimen should be chosen to meet the individual requirements of the child and in most cases it can be tailored to the most practical method of feeding to cause minimum disruption to the child’s lifestyle and that of their family. Certain situations will dictate a preferred feeding regimen, but a flexible approach to feeding should be taken wherever possible. This enables the child to maintain their usual day-to-day activities and for the family to experience minimal disruption to their lifestyle and routines.

It is safer and easier to administer than parenteral nutrition both in hospital and at home and can be adapted to meet the individual requirements of infants and children of all ages. Some children require total nutrition via a nasogastric, gastrostomy or jejunostomy tube, whereas others require nutritional support to supplement their poor oral intake or to meet their increased nutritional requirements. Enteral feeding may be short term but for many children it can be a long term or even lifelong method of feeding.

Infants and children with malabsorption will benefit from a continuous infusion of feed. This will slow transit time and may improve symptoms of diarrhoea, steatorrhoea and abdominal cramps and help to promote weight gain. In children with protracted diarrhoea and short bowel syndrome, continuous enteral feeding with a specialised formula often forms the basis of medical management, and continuous tube feeding with an elemental feed is a well established treatment option for children with Crohn’s disease to induce remission of disease.
