With advancements in the care of preterm infants, the goals in nutritional care have expanded from survival and mimicking fetal growth to optimizing neurodevelopmental outcomes. Inadequate nutritional support may be a risk factor for major complications of prematurity; conversely, higher disease burden is a risk for growth restriction. Early complete parenteral nutrition support, including intravenous lipid emulsion, should be adopted, and the next challenge that should be addressed is parenteral nutrition customized to fit the specific needs and metabolism of the extremely preterm infant. Standardized feeding protocols should be adopted.
