Objective To assess the impact of facility based dietary management on severe acute malnutrition among children aged 6 to 60 months. Materials and Methods The present longitudinal study was carried out among the children aged between 6 to 60 months admitted in Nutritional Rehabilitation Centre of KLES Dr. Prabhakar Kore Hospital. Pre-designed and pre-tested questionnaire was used to collect the required information. Paired t test was calculated to see the association. Results Majority (80 %) children were severe acute malnourished and (20 %) were moderate acute malnourished.

A statistically significant relationship was found between weight, height, MUAC and Hb % at different intervals (p<0.05).
