I hope you are well. What is your child's current weight and height ? Also, please mention your child's age and foods that he's been consuming regularly. What does his regular diet look like ? Also, since when does he have the habit of eating junk ? 1) Try and prepare his favourite foods at home once a week and encourage him to stay active. 2) Avoid stocking unhealthy foods at home, and try to make the normal meals more interesting. 3) Explain the importance of eating healthy and subtly tell him that unhealthy foods can harm his overall growth and health. 4) Allow him to eat whatever he wants to only once a month, and be calm and more patient with him.
