Nutrition Counseling and Care During and After Childhood Illness Literature Review: Evidence from African Countries

Optimal infant and young child feeding is key for child survival, growth, and development. However, some contexts do not provide quality feeding counseling and services during sick child visits and there is a lack of information on these services surrounding common childhood illnesses in Africa. This review provides information on nutrition counseling and care during and after childhood illness in Africa, reports trends for feeding and care practices from 2005 to 2020, and investigates the practices of caregivers and health providers for nutrition counseling during and after childhood illness.
