Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
We are pleased to invite contributions of original research or reviews to extend our understanding of how food preferences change throughout life, under the influence of biological, social, and environmental factors. The objective of this proposed Special Issue on “Nutritional Habits and Interventions in Childhood” is to publish selected papers about nutritional and educational interventions towards children and their families. The creation of healthy preferences are key determinants of food choices, and therefore diet quality. Children and adolescents with chronic or inflammatory disease are more vulnerable and are at major risk of developing malnutrition. For this reason, nutritional interventions tailored to specific pathologies are needed to prevent nutritional deficiencies and to maintain an adequate nutritional status. Nutrition has also a therapeutic effect and may modulate risk factors for specific pathologies. We invite you to submit your research covering these important topics. Submission of original papers, reviews, or meta-analyses are particularly welcome.
