This review by experts aimed to identify areas of consensus regarding the provision of appropriate nutritional support in the management of pediatric malnutrition that can be translated into a practical and implementable guidance document. Experts identified the “six rights” of pediatric malnutrition care to discuss, including the (1) right patient (appropriate identification of malnourished child); (2) right method (appropriate selection of type, site, route, and mode of delivery of nutrition); (3) right product (appropriate selection of the nutritional product); (4) right posology (appropriate calculation of required intake); (5) right duration (appropriate duration, discharge criteria, and monitoring); and (6) right information (providing the right information to the caregiver and raising public awareness about preventive strategies) and prevention of malnutrition.
