In brief: It depends

This condition is severe protein-calorie malnutrition.
If the patient is able to assimulate nutrients orally, that is the ideal treatment route. If not the other option include gastric feeding (oral tube or external gastric puncture) or intravenous alimentation (iv nutrients).
