Takes very low diet

Hi, My son 6 years old takes very low diet and falls ill very frequently. Round the year bi-weekly problem for stomach pain, vomiting, fever, nausea, common cold and the like. Isn't comfortable with breakfast at all, vomits if we try to feed him on breakfast. Takes irregular meals, 1-2 chapattis a day and half cup of juice or milk is his diet for the day. Regards, Vikas

Hi Vikas, if your son is not comfortable eating breakfast give something to drink which is high in calories. Try out different milkshake and smoothie with nuts in morning that will be filling and good to boost his immunity. If he is not eating try to figure out his likes and dislikes and then give food which he don't like with his favorite foods may be he will give try.  Don't force feed him. And above all dnt feed in front of TV or with mobile in hand this leads to discourage kids to eat more.

Try giving soft diet like veg Khichdi, Dalia,, egg omlette to him
Also make a schedule of giving 5 small meals to him rather than force feeding.
Add citrus Fruits like orange, mausambi in any form to boost up his immune system.
