Infant Growth: Is Your Child on Track?
Understanding 'Failure to Thrive'
The treatment is a two-pronged approach. The first involves treating any medical causes and intervening in any psychosocial ones. Yet regardless of the causes, there is an inadequately nourished child at stake and the second effort is always to renourish that child.

The end goal is always a thriving, healthy, growing child.
