Nutritional and slow body growth
My 5 year old cousin is facing slow body growth, her weight is just 11 kg. She is very choosey and having tantrums in terms of taking meel, like a normal child do. So now a days we are giving her GROVIVA powder, as sudgested by our Dr. . So i have. 2 questions 1. What should we do to make her healthy as per her age standards, because we have been always trying to make her comfortable to eat all natural nutritional meel, and we noticed that her diet is low. She is actively involved in all physical activity like games and all. But why she is not feeling more hungry??? 2. Is health supplements like GROVIVA is good for her?

Creating a positive eating environment Make mealtimes a happy, regular and social family occasion. Sit together to eat with your child whenever you can. Show your child how much you enjoy eating the food you’ve prepared. Get your child involved in helping to prepare and cook family meals. Offer new foods when you and your child are relaxed, and your child isn’t too tired or distracted by other things. Set a time limit of about 20 minutes for a meal. If your child hasn’t eaten the food, take it away and don’t offer an alternative snack or meal. Avoid punishing your child for refusing to try new foods. This can turn tasting new foods into a negative thing. Avoid bribing your child with treats just so they’ll eat some healthy food. This can make your child more interested in treats than healthy food and sends the message that eating healthy food is a chore. Serving new foods Keep offering new foods. It can take 10-15 tries for children to accept and enjoy new foods. Serve your child the same foods as the rest of the family. Your child will get the nutritional benefits of a wide range of foods, and accept new tastes and textures as ‘normal’. Offer new foods with foods that your child already knows and likes. If your child refuses something, offer it again in a week or so. Your child might gobble it up and even ask for more – toddler interest in food can fluctuate wildly.

children eat only when they are hungry, and eat the amount what is needed, they get bored easily, so give them smart, dense calories meals.
