Abstract

Nasogastric feeding at home is increasingly being used to provide nutritional support for children with chronic conditions associated with poor growth. The development of specialized feeding products together with accurate and portable enteral feeding pumps has facilitated this process. Parents manage home nasogastric feeding well but require education and continued support. This is probably best offered by a specialized multidisciplinary nutritional care team.
