Catch-up growth is defined as an accelerated growth which is observed in young children after a period of growth retardation when the cause of the growth deficiency is removed. Mostly malnutrition is responsible for the lost growth. Often at young age children may not get proper nutrition as they required for their growth. This occurs due to kid’s liking and disliking towards certain foods. It might also occur due to religious regions kids are not allowed to take animal proteins. This lack of nutrition result in growth retardation and thus kids are not grown up to their right height and weight as per the age.
When a child falls behind on growth, he/she requires higher level of nutrition compared to the average level to catch up the lost growth and development.
