With these conditions come a variety of challenges that impair nutritional status. While Zika infection in the United States remains relatively rare, registered dietitian nutritionists should be prepared to assess and provide support to affected children. The most common nutrition-related consequences of Zika infection have some possible nutrition interventions to minimize their impact. The goal of nutritional care for infants and children with congenital Zika syndrome is to promote optimal functional capacity and quality of life. © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
