Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a new Special Issue entitled “Infant and Early Childhood Nutrition” in Children, a peer-reviewed scientific journal indexed in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) and Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI). The latest released impact factor for this journal is 2.4 (Journal Citation Report, 2022 Edition).

Nutrition is a milestone in the development of infants and children, especially in critical developmental stages such as breastfeeding and complementary feeding. Nutrition is an epigenetic factor that can modify the natural history of numerous non-communicable diseases. Moreover, nutrition in critical development stages can also facilitate taste development and food-related behavior.

This Special Issue welcomes original research articles presenting quantitative or qualitative data, as well as reviews addressing nutritional issues in infancy and early childhood.
