Infant diarrhoea is globally the second highest cause of death in under-fives. Children who are transitioning from being breastfed to eating foods, known as weanlings, are at particular risk from diarrhoea. We are examining interventions aimed at reducing the burden of diarrhoea among weanlings, particularly behavioural interventions that influence food hygiene, food content and safe play.
