Weight increase
Hi Doc My son is 2 years 8 months old. His weight is 12.5 and Hieght is 92 cms. He eats all three meals plus one or two fruits daily. Fruits include 1 Apple and one small bowl of pomegranate. Plus he also takes 250 - 300 ml of milk daily. However his weight doesn't increase much. From the last 6 months, it must have increased only 500 gms. But we feel he is picking up hieght. Can you suggest any measures which can help increase his weight or any supplements or tonic.. Regards Deepika

Hi , first of all the most important thing to notice is that child is active or not...if he's active then there is no need to worry... nxt thing some babies have genes of there families in weight and height...so alot depends on parents weight and height... and according to age of your child weight is normal. (average weight of 3 yr old boy is 11.8 kgs)
Next Steps
no need to give any supplements or tonics unless there is some deficiency or malnutrition... always go for natural things ...a healthy balanced diet...if u want a proper balanced diet then u can also consult a good nutritionist nearby u or u can contact me onln ..
Health Tips
make your child eat what he loves to eat . don't insist him for extra bite. a proper Indian meal is also good enough...

Do not give any kind of meal supplements at this young age.From 2-5 years age ,kids have a spurt in height and hence do not put on too much weight. Give him a regular balanced diet containing all food groups.Give him all the seasonal fruits and vegetables. As long as he is alert,active and not falling sick frequently,do not worry about his weight.

For babies, the name of the product is Dino Shake. If you want the product, and to know the dosage and intake of this product, please contact  me.
