Use of fiber-containing enteral formula in pediatric clinical practice: an expert opinion review.

Résumé

Introduction Children who require enteral nutrition often report gastrointestinal symptoms. There is a growing interest in nutrition formulas that meet nutritional requirements and also maintain gut ecology and function. Fiber-containing enteral formulas can improve bowel function, promote the growth of healthy gut microbiota, and improve immune homeostasis. Nonetheless, guidance in clinical practice is lacking. Areas covered This expert opinion article summarizes the available literature and collects the opinion of eight experts on the importance and use of fiber-containing enteral formulas in pediatrics. The present review was supported by a bibliographical literature search on Medline via PubMed to collect the most relevant articles. Expert opinion The current evidence supports using fibers in enteral formulas as first-line nutrition therapy. Dietary fibers should be considered for all patients receiving enteral nutrition and can be slowly introduced from six months of age. Fiber properties that define the functional/physiological properties of the fiber must be considered. Clinicians should balance the dose of fiber with tolerability and feasibility. Introducing fiber-containing enteral formulas should be considered when initiating tube feeding. Dietary fiber should be introduced gradually, especially in fiber-naïve children, with an individualized symptom-based approach. Patients should continue with the fiber-containing enteral formulas they tolerate best.
