Ulcerative colitis (UC ) is one of the two entities of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). It is an idiopathic chronic inflammatory disorder that involves mainly the colon. UC is characterized by periods of remission and relapses . The etiology of IBD is multifactorial including genetic, environmental, microbial, and immunological factors . The incidence of ulcerative colitis has obviously increased. Both the evidence and also researches showed the marvelous role of control of the disease by restricted and in the same time balanced nutritional management. The aim is to decrease the disease active status and relapses. This helps to preserve the colon, decrease the risk of dysplasia and the important point in pediatric UC is to decrease risk of growth failure.
