How can you prevent malnutrition recurring?

  1. The mother or caregiver must be given the education and financial support to provide a good diet.
  2. Regular follow up with weighing is essential.

There is a real risk that malnutrition will recur in a previously malnourished child as it is very difficult to correct social and economic problems in a family and community.

Start treating the malnutrition immediately and do not wait to treat the infection first.
