What are appropriate foods for infected children who are wasted, foods that should be avoided, and recommended additional fluids such as ORS?

The following answer was produced through consultation within the Wasting TWG

There is currently no indication that any particular foods or liquids have been identified that should be avoided beyond the recommendations of typical co-morbidity management. Current recommendations are to promote good IYCF practices and recommendations to care for sick children.
