A NUTRITIONAL APPROACH WITH LOW COST AND HIGH SUCCESS RATE

Key words: Malnutrition, Unicef formulation, Traditional food, Efficacy

An evaluation was made of a nutritional mix based on traditional food at the pediatric nutrition Unit at St. Mary's Hospital in Lacor, Uganda. 96 children with severe malnutrition were given a food mixture to complement the Unicef formula. The use of the lowcost mixture compared favourably with the use of the Unicef formula alone in terms of weight gain and short-term mortality.
