1. Make sure you know what you are volunteering for. 2. I am sure starving kids were excited to get some sweets. I know they should be healthy, but sometimes you have to give in and enjoy some sweet things.

If the children are malnourished, wouldn't giving them high calorie food be a good thing? Because, you know, calories aren't bad, it's just that too many is bad, and if you're malnourished, it's because you're not getting enough calories.

Malnourishment is the lack of a satisfactory amount of vitamins/minerals/nutrient. You can be morbidly obese, but I you're only eating junk or take away you're not going to be meeting the requirements for nutrients and things, and thus be considered "malnourished".
