Effects of Food on the Most Commonly Used Medications in School-Age Children

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Children who consume a nutrient-dense, energy appropriate breakfast have shown health benefits as a result of such actions. Certain medications that children take may be affected by food consumption at breakfast or during other times of the day. A brief review of the dietary considerations that should be addressed for medications used to treat the most common acute and chronic illnesses in school-aged children is presented in this review. This information can help mitigate confusion that often surrounds drug-food interactions and can support optimal drug therapy outcomes. Working to coordinate the nutritional requirements of certain medications is a model for interprofessional care and can lead to optimal health for our children and adolescents.
