This scoping review found no community-based nutrition interventions for school-aged refugee children to promote oral health and restore healthy body weight.

This scoping review searched both peer-review publications and grey literature to evaluate efficacy and use of nutritional interventions for refugee children. Searches yielded seven studies that fulfilled inclusion criteria. The authors were unable to identify any nutrition interventions for school-aged refugee children to promote oral health and restore health body weight. There was limited weak evidence for the effectiveness of community-based nutrition interventions in other refugee settings. The authors conclude that there exists a need to conduct community-based, multi-sectoral nutrition and oral health intervention for children residing in long-term and protracted refugee situation. However, there is limited evidence to support this.
