Evidence for programming by nutrition is established in animals, in whom brief pre- or postnatal nutritional manipulations may program adult size, metabolism, blood lipids, diabetes, blood pressure, obesity, atherosclerosis, learning, behavior and life span. Human epidemiological data link potential markers of early nutrition size at birth or in infancy to cardiovascular disease and its risk factors in adulthood. However, these retrospective data cannot prove nutritional cause or underpin health policies.
The Early Nutrition Academy goes e-learning — join now! Here you will find an introduction to the science of early nutrition and metabolic programming, the aims of the academy, trainings and post-graduate courses, useful links to research literature on early nutrition programming and information about future events and related fields of research.
The Early Nutrition Academy ENA was established along with the Early Nutrition Programming Project EARNEST to foster nutrition research and its standards, in particular as it relates to nutrition in women of childbearing age, infants and children, including basic science, epidemiology and applied nutrition, as well as standards of nutrition practice foster nutrition education provide training in research skills communicate research findings foster implementation and dissemination of knowledge help shape EU policy help transfer knowledge and technology to commercial users To reach these goals the academy offers trainings and post-graduate courses held by cooperation partners in various institutions across Europe.
These courses will be announced here and you will find information about the schedule and the enrollment procedure of the next course.
Cooperation Partners The Early Nutrition Academy has established intense collaboration with the University of Granada, Spain to organise international training courses for doctoral students and post docs in the area of early nutrition programming.
Further collaborations exist with the following institutions and projects:Although the links between early growth and later disease risk implicate early-life nutrition, either in utero or during infancy, few prospective studies have explored the influence of early diet on later body composition.
Many studies have associated breast-feeding with a reduced prevalence of obesity categorised by BMI; however, the few.
Increasing evidence from the EU Project EARNEST and many other investigators demonstrates that early nutrition and lifestyle have long-term effects on later health and the risk of common non-communicable diseases (known as 'developmental programming').

Metabolic programming by early nutrition occurs when a nutritional stimulus (by excess or defect) is produced during a critical period (when organs and tissues are growing and developing), modulating the development of the organism to.
Early nutrition programming is the concept that differences in nutritional experience at critical periods in early life, both pre- and post-natally, can programme a person's development, metabolism and .
