The widespread use of oral rehydration therapy has revolutionized the treatment of dehydration in young children with acute diarrhoea, and increasing attention is now being paid to the need to prevent the nutritional damage caused by diarrhoea, particularly by means of early feeding.
The manual summarizes the current knowledge about the relationship between diarrhoea and malnutrition, and the digestion and absorption of foods during and after acute diarrhoea. It then considers how this information can be applied to the feeding of children with acute diarrhoea.
