Abstract Vitamin metabolism and requirements are reviewed for the micropremie (1000 Pounds g birthweight), for parenteral and enteral feedings. Recommendations are presented in table format. Human milk fortifiers and special formulas for the preterm infant are reviewed. For parenteral nutrition, only MVI Pediatric is currently available in the United States. Two millimeters per kilogram is recommended for the micropremie as the most satisfactory method of providing supplemental vitamins in total parenteral nutrition solutions.
