Continuous Feeding During Diarrhoea

 

Child feeding practices

Experience shows that food should not be withheld from infants and children with acute diarrhoea. Depending on their feeding status, children should receive breast-milk or diluted milk feeds; in cases of dehydration, these should be offered as soon as initial rehydration therapy has been completed. Appropriate locally available foods (cereals) should be offered as soon as the appetite returns. After the diarrhoea ceases, more than the usual amount of food should b given for a short period. The routine use of any special infant formula (lactose-free products) for diarrhoea cases should be strongly discouraged as they are only rarely necessary and are costly.
