Children at high risk of malnutrition during the shooting can be recognized early by means of risk score instruments. In the Netherlands, a simple screening tool has been developed consisting of four questions, which are taken upon recording. Both the doctor, the nurse and dietitian can reduce the STRONGkids. Based on the score on the STRONGkids, the risk of malnutrition is determined and advice is given on follow-up interventions. In children included, the advice is to repeat the risk screening weekly.
