Aim Preterm nutrition guidelines target nutrient accretion and growth at intrauterine rates, yet at term equivalent age, the phenotype of the preterm infant differs from that of term infants. Monitoring early changes in preterm body composition (BC) in response to macronutrient intakes may facilitate our understanding of how best to meet preterm nutrition and growth targets. Method Macronutrient intakes based on milk analysis were calculated from birth for infants born
