Abstract: Appropriate food and nutrition needs of the sick child are described. Specific illnesses discussed are: acute bacterial infections (e.g., tonsillitis, ear infections, boils, abscessed teeth, pneumonia, bronchitis, croup, urinary tract infections); acute viral infections (e.g., roseola, chicken pox, influenza); and gastroenteritis (diarrhea and vomiting). Loss of appetite and possible dehydration associated with bacterial infections should be treated with foods providing calories (e.g., ice cream, puddings), vitamins and minerals (e.g., home-made soup), and possibly with nutrient supplements. Ice cream and puddings should not, however, be given in the case of diarrhea. The principles for nutritional support during viral infections are the same as during bacterial infections (adequate calories from a well-tolerated food source; plenty of fluids; vitamin and mineral supplements). Diarrhea must be treated in a manner which replaces lost fluid and nutrients without aggravating the diarrhea. Dietary guidelines pertaining to calories, fluids, vitamins, minerals, and protein in feeding the sick child are discussed. Recipes are given for preparing peanut butter candy (protein source) and orange julius drink (vitamin C source). (wz)
