dc.description.abstract This study evaluated the nutritional quality of home-made enteral diets and their effect on growth parameters. Thirty pediatric patients receiving only homemade enteral diets were enrolled. Samples of milk-based (MB) and soup-based (SP) feeds were taken for chemical analises. the chidrens anthropometric indexes were assessed. in the MB, the measured values for the macronutrients and energy corresponded to approximately 70 of the prescribed values. Conversely, the SP measured values corresponded to less than 50 of the prescribed values, except for carbohydrate. the prevalence of underweight was 30 (9/30) at the time of entry into home nutritional therapy and declined to 20 (6/30) at the time of the study (p 0.007). Stunting increased throughout the follow up, from 30 (9/30) to 53 (16/30; p 0.511). Obesity prevalence fell from 17 (4/23) to 9 (2/23; p 0.001). Despite their inconsistent levels of macronutrients and energy, home-made enteral diets had no negative effect on the patients weights. en
