Evaluation of domicilliary management of protein-calorie malnutrition.

Abstract

An approach to tackle protein-calorie malnutrition through domiciliary management is described. Children suffering from moderate and severe protein-calorie malnutrition were managed using a food supplement containing low cost locally available foodstuffs and nutrition education. An evaluation showed that the anthropometric improvement was closely associated with better concepts in nutrition and improved dietary practices following nutrition education. Parents of children suffering from kwashiorkor had better knowledge and practice compared with those of marasmus.
