Abstract :

Nutritious deficiencies have been a noteworthy consideration in pediatrics. Children, even when growing normally, are at risk for nutritional deficiencies. Different types of most of the nutritional deficiencies are diagnosed by a doctor. In any case, nutritional deficiencies that can happen in generally asymptomatic normally developing children are neglected. These deficiencies are quite common and can have significant negative short-term and long-term effects on the lives of children. Children in developed nations consume enough calories but lack iron, zinc and calcium. Health care providers often focus their attention on overt disease processes and fail to recognize mild nutritional deficiencies. Hence there is an urgent need to recognize and manage such deficiencies so that all children get proper nutrition and grow normally.
