We propose an approach to nutrition of the VLBW infant that aims at minimizing the interruption of nutrient uptake engendered by premature birth. Our approach is aggressive in that it goes beyond current practice in several key aspects. The gap in nutrient intakes between the proposed aggressive approach and current practice will most likely disappear over the next few years as today's aggressive practice becomes tomorrow's standard practice. As the gap diminishes, so will the threat that nutritional deprivation poses to growth and development of VLBW infants.
