Hi, with today's pollution levels and chemicals in food it has become very common for kids to have frequent cold etc. Also, till the age of 7 a child's immunity is low. It should improve with age. Give her good probiotics like a bottle of yakult daily. Along with curds, butter milk, dosa, idli, dhokla as these are fermented foods and will help increase her immunity. Give her fruitshakes dried fruits, bananas daily to help with her weight. Give her 1 date daily. Also help her to do some breathing exercises. This should help her. Hope this helps.
Hello mam..... The cause of low weight and low immunity are low caloric food intake, deficiency of proteins, iron, Vitamin b12, folic acid, vitamin D, zinc. If she is deficient in iron or any vitamins, please consult a Paediatrician for the supplements.
Although she might be eating home food, check her portion size and variety in foods.
You can include potato, almonds, groundnuts, cashew nuts, coconut, eggs, dals, khajjur, figs on daily basis.
Add ghee to her rice or on chapatti.
Make sure she eats vegetables in good quality, two fruits a day and handful of nuts everyday .
Immunity drops if a child eats biscuits or bakery items on daily basis. Instead of biscuits, you can give her dry fruit with dry coconut laddoo made at home, one daily.
