Post a reply: Sugar water on admission to a CMAM programme

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

I am working on a training for a country with no history of CMAM programming and I was wondering about the importance of giving sugar water when a child is admitted to a CMAM programme in order to prevent hypoglycemia. I know the FANTA module recommends routine administration, but others I have spoken to say its not that common in practice. I know that there is no harm in administering sugar water to all children, but what would be the harm in not administering it? I know some people advocate for only giving it in cases of suspected hypoglycemia, is this more common in people's experience? What would you suggest for developing country specific organizational wide guidelines (sugar water to all children, sugar water only in cases of suspected hypoglycemia)?
