About

The goal is to find a simple tool that can be used by medical and paramedical staff and that is reliable to identify children at risk for malnutrition.

Full description

The Ingesta Easy Assessment Score (SEFI®) (formerly "food intake assessment tool or EPA®") is validated in hospitals in adults to detect the risk of malnutrition and guide nutritional management. SEFI® combines a visual analogue scale (VAS) with a visual assessment of the portions consumed (www.sefi-nutrition.com). It comes in the form of a ruler equipped with a cursor and allows a visual assessment, by the patient himself, of his food intake, using an analog scale, or a choice of portions. consumed (see appendix). A score <7/10 is associated with malnutrition or the risk of malnutrition. The investigators hypothesize that, in pediatric services for children 10 years of age or older, SEFI® would be a feasible and reliable tool for screening for the risk of malnutrition.
