My 8 year old son is under weight only 20. 5 kg. He also eats slow. And don't have intrest in eating food. But still he is hyper active. How could i increase his food intake speed. He has his lunch or dinner in 1 to 2 hrs time. He eats him self and do not agree to feed food by me. Please guide what should i do?

My pediatrician also told me same about weight. But you know in our society other people mostly poke us about out child's weight. "Kitana patala hai. Kuch khata nahi kya?" It affects mother most. How to get rid of this question? It is big problem. After all we mothers are very emotional towards our child.

I am having the same problem too. My son is 7+ yrs old and only 20kg. He is also hyper active. I normally feed him to ensure he eats otherwise he doesnt eat much. Appreciate some feedback here. Thank you.
