FEEDING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR DIARRHOEA
Follow the feeding recommendations for your child’s age, but give small, frequent meals (at least 6 times a day). If your baby is ill, try to continue feeding him/her. For a week after your baby gets better, give him/her an extra meal a day.
Give a sugar-salt solution (SSS) in addition to feeds. Give the SSS after each loose stool. Let your child take frequent, small sips from a cup (half a cup for children under 2 years and 1 cup for children 2–5 years). If your child vomits, wait for 10 minutes then continue, but more slowly.
How to prepare a sugar-salt solution (SSS) at home:
Use 1 litre of boiled, cooled water.
Add 8 level teaspoons of sugar.
And add ½ a teaspoon of salt.
Stir until dissolved.
