What is the value of zinc supplements in managing a child with diarrhoea?

Zinc is an important trace element which can speed up the recovery from diarrhoea and help to prevent further diarrhoea. Once the child is taking feeds well, one tablet of zinc (20 mg) should be given daily for 10 days. Children under 6 months should have half a tablet daily.
