Abstract

Failure to thrive is poor physical growth, both in weight and height, in children under three years of age. This underdiagnosed entity can affect children’s physical, intellectual, emotional and social development. Paediatric Primary Care is crucial in early diagnosis and prevention of their morbidity. This document represents a useful tool for the teamwork between paediatricians and paediatric nursing. Its objective is to carry out an early, individualized and efficient approach in these children.
