I want to ask a question about my 4 year old son about his height and weight as his height doesn't increasing as per his age and he is also under weight. So on this regard what should I do. I am giving him suplements as prescribed by doctor as his iron level is low since after three months. Suplements are not working as I m giving him since the day he born. I also giving him different healthy foods. Please tell me what are the possible reasons of his low iron and growth. Please also suggest me something about increasing height and weight and exercises and activities for him. Thank you.

I hope you are doing well. Firstly,what is your child's weight,height and iron levels. Add these foods to his diet. IRON RICH FOODS Green leafy veggies -Nuts and seeds -Nigella seeds (kalonji) -Dried fruits -Tofu -Legumes -Mushrooms -Amaranth -Oats -quinoa -Coconut milk -olives -Potatoes -Soyabean -Flaxseeds -Sesame seeds Iron could be low due to various reasons- -Either there isn't enough Vitamin C in his diet. -His food doesn't get digested well, so many be a digestive problem. -You are giving him too much of some other mineral which is not allowing enough absorption of iron.
