Specialists working in nutrition and growth in Europe, the Middle East, and the US present studies from peer-reviewed journals published between July 2015 and June 2016, with summaries and supplemental editorial comments evaluating the clinical importance of each article and its application. Compiled into nine chapters, they relate to the physiology and mechanism of growth; obesity, metabolic syndrome, and nutrition; term and preterm infants; cognition; nutrition and growth in chronic disease; early nutrition and its effects on growth, body composition, and later obesity; malnutrition and catch-up growth during childhood and puberty; the impact of maternal nutrition on intrauterine fetal growth; and stunting in developing countries.
