1. To assess energy expenditure and body composition by stable isotope techniques in children with Severe Acute Malnutrition
2. To evaluate the potential usefulness of body composition assessment as a predictor of outcome in children with SAM, based on stable isotope technique and multi-frequency bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA)
