AbstractSets out principles and practices designed to guide the correct early feeding of young children suffering from acute diarrhoea. Addressed to district programme managers, the book advocates an approach to management that combines feeding practices, backed by the latest scientific knowledge, with efforts to uncover cultural beliefs that may either support or impede successful management. The book opens with a brief review of findings relevant to the dietary management of acute diarrhoea as a means of preventing malnutrition. Readers are introduced to the relationship between diarrhoea and malnutrition, groups at special risk, causal factors, and facts about food digestion and nutrient absorption during diarrhoea that support the benefits of early feeding. The second chapter offers a guide to the selection of foods during and after diarrhoea, emphasizing the importance of issuing medical advice in keeping with an awareness of traditional beliefs and practices that may influence acceptance. The third chapter, focused on the collection of information, presents a series of thirteen questions useful in gathering information about traditional attitudes and beliefs concerning breastfeeding, artificial feeding, weaning, and the recommendation or avoidance of certain foods during diarrhoea. A chapter on prevention concentrates on dietary measures, for infants and during weaning, that can decrease the likelihood of swallowing harmful bacteria or viruses and increase resistance to infection. Tables and charts are used to outline feeding practices according to age from birth to two years, to describe the multimix principle for introducing weaning foods, and to indicate foods that are rich in energy and nutrients. The book concludes with a tabular guide to the dietary management of diarrhoea according to four stages, moving from diarrhoea without obvious dehydration to convalescence
