Pediatricians should consider the costs and benefits of preventing rather than treating childhood diseases. The authors present an integrated developmental approach to child and adult health that considers the costs and benefits of interventions over the life cycle. They suggest policies to promote child health that are currently outside the boundaries of conventional pediatrics. They discuss current challenges to the field and suggest avenues for future research.
