Abstract

The intestine as the first barrier for nutrients and luminal components and the endocrine pancreas for its major role
in glycidic homeostasis have a central role in determining postnatal defence and metabolic programming. At birth
the gastrointestinal tract and the pancreas are immature and their development continues during the first years of life.
