Paediatric Nutrition Screening Tool
Now you can easily identify if your child is at nutritional risk
by answering FOUR questions with the Paediatric Nutrition Screening Tool*,
developed by Children’s Health Queensland.
This test can be performed by caregivers together with the parents,
or by the parents themselves.
1. Has your child unintentionally lost weight lately?
2. Has your child had poor weight gain
over the last few months?
3. Has your child been eating/feeding
less in the last few weeks?
4. Is your child obviously underweight?
