Abstract

Screening for undernutrition among hospitalized children requires a systematic assessment of dietary intake. The development of a new tool for quick and playful assessment of dietary intake, called "Fleur" ("Flower"), at the Hôpital de l'Enfance in Lausanne allows to identify children at risk of undernutrition and to adapt their nutrition to their specific needs.
