Parents might notice that their baby is thinner than other children their age. They are sometimes burdened by an overwhelming worry in spite of the fact that underweight child should rarely be a matter of concern. You can judge your child’s weight only by observing the weight percentile on their growth chart which frequently updates with every visit to the doctor.

In case you are sure your child is underweight, you have to study both the quantity and the quality of their food. You also need to be aware of the possibility that certain diseases can be the cause. In this article, we are focusing on the causes related to your child’s diet and eating habits.

During your infant’s nursing period, you have to make sure they get sufficient milk from you or from the bottle. You’ll figure your baby is full when they sleep peacefully for long hours and don’t cry so often.



What are the Causes of Underweight Child ? How to Deal with Children Refusing Meals?



As they grow a more acute awareness of the world surrounding them, many things can distract children nearly everything around like the TV, Youtube for kids, or their siblings; ditching food to become their last priority. If they reject some types of food, parents should serve meals in specified plates to monitor the quantity of the food their child consumes and try to compensate for the kinds they reject.

Force-feeding children might be the worst idea parents can come up with. Also, it might lead children to lose their appetite. Instead of forcing, try to distract them during their mealtime, get creative with the presentation, and use your baby’s favorite plates. You also need to make sure you include enough minerals and vitamins into their diet. Also, you should supply them with sufficient sources of carbohydrates like dried fruits.

Your child might be the type that discards food outside the home as well; so it is essential to cooperate with the kids nursery teacher to make sure your baby eats his meals and that he likes his snacks and meals.

The nutritionist offers regular advice to parents to make sure their babies are growing healthily.
