Interviews with mothers in 4 ecologically separate regions of Uganda (Arua, Mukono, Kabale and Mbarara) revealed considerable differences in patterns of infant and child feeding in health and during diarrhoea. There was considerable enthusiasm for the use of fermentation and germination of cereals and tubers in some areas (Arua 87% and Kabale 90%). These household food processes were especially recommended for improving dietary intake during diarrhoea. However, these techniques were not used by mothers in Mukono or Mbarara. The advantages of these procedures and possible reasons for differences in their popularity are discussed.
