At the largest rehabilitation centre in Ceará, Brazil, the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for improved dietary management of severe malnutrition were implemented. Rates of weight gain increased fourfold, daily food costs were reduced, and staff time was saved. Implementation was achieved within 1 week, including training. Other centres are encouraged to adopt similar measures.
