Nutritional research  


The growth and quality of growth of infants born at term, preterm and late preterm are investigated by means of an air displacement plethismografic (Pea Pod, Bod Pod, Cosmed-USA). Attention has also been focused on nutritional interventions that might promote growth and body composition.
