This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

The primary aim of this review is to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions to improve water quality and supply (adequate quantity to maintain hygiene practices), provide adequate sanitation and promote hand-washing with soap, in improving the nutritional status of children under the age of 18 years.

The secondary aim of this review is to identify current research gaps.
