Feeding is an essential activity for all children, providing nutrition and maintaining normal glucose levels. In children with congenital hyperinsulinism (HI), feeding difficulties are common, and a significant proportion of infants with HI require feeding support, complicating medical management. It is important to recognize potential causes and mechanisms contributing to feeding problems and address these through sustained multidisciplinary input to improve the long-term well-being of children with HI.
