Height and weight not standard
Hi, My daughter is 5 years old. Her height and weight is less and not according to standard. Height is 104cm and weight 16 kgs. Could you please suggest some food items which I could give her to improve these parameters. Could I give her some milk powder/supplements. Is keva growth powder good for her? Kindly give suggestions. Regards

Need a detailed history. Was she always short and underweight? What was her birth weight.? What is the height of you and your husband?
Next Steps
Give normal diet with ghee and healthy diet. Ask her to drink plenty of water. No health drink will help.
