Energy requirements of children with severe CP who utilize a wheelchair for mobility have been reported to be between 60 % to 70 % of those of healthy typically developing children. There is currently no commonly accepted method for estimating the energy needs of children and adolescent with CP. Adequate amount of carbohydrates, proteins and fats are needed to meet the energy requirement of the body.
