  Purpose

Hospital undernutrition is a common health problem [1]. As a countermeasure, French hospitals have created a system of cross-function committees for feeding and nutrition called CLANs [Comité de Liaison pour l'alimentation et la nutrition] [2]. Potential actions for improving patient nutritional status include improving the characteristics of the food provided to increase both protein and calorie intake in at-risk patients that do not require enteral or parenteral nutrition. Looking at the various daily meals, the investigators considered that breakfast following the night fast would be the easiest meal to improve .

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • serum transthyretin (prealbumin) concentration [ Time Frame: changes between D0 to D7 between the 2 cohorts ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Improvement of serum transthyretin (prealbumin) concentration changes between D0 to D7


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • serum albumin concentration changes and length of stay [ Time Frame: Changes between the 2 cohorts ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    serum albumin concentration changes between D0 to D7, length of stay


Estimated Enrollment: 800
Study Start Date: October 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Sham Comparator: Observational period
A first period of follow-up on the 400 patients was designed to survey and evaluate current nutrition administration policy
Dietary Supplement: Addition of protein (milky food in the breakfast)
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of additional protein (adding milky food to the breakfast) in order to deliver an optimized protein and energy intake of 15.75 g and 559 Kcal, respectively.
Experimental: Intervention period
The second period of follow-up on the 400 patients was designed to evaluate the impacts of adding milky food to the breakfast and of educating health care professionals on the early detection of undernutrition.
Dietary Supplement: Addition of protein (milky food in the breakfast)
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of additional protein (adding milky food to the breakfast) in order to deliver an optimized protein and energy intake of 15.75 g and 559 Kcal, respectively.
