Healthy Weight Gain in Toddlers

Sep 18, 2021, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Do you have a toddler? With toddlers, food often becomes a reason to assert her independence. Therefore it is common that toddlers refuse to eat or even try food. Low weight is a common issue with a toddler. 

Is he gaining enough weight?

What can I do to improve my child’s weight?

What foods could I try to help my child gain a healthy weight?

These are some questions that come to your mind as a parent.

Some of the foods include

  1. Cereals that include chapati, pasta, rice etc.

  2. Fruits Banana, cheeku, mango, and custard apple can be given as fruits or in milk shake, custard or ice cream.

  3. Vegetables like potato, sweet potato, colocassia, yam besides other vegetables.

  4. Eggs, Fish/poultry/meat, Home-made paneer and nuts are some other options for healthy weight gain.

  5. Additional ghee/butter/oil can be used if the child is really underweight. In case the child’s weight is normal, please use these in moderation.

  6. Whole cream milk can be used to further enhance the energy intake and weight. Once the child is on normal weight, use toned milk.

  7. While giving these foods, it is advisable to give only little amounts first, to check for any allergy. If there is no allergic reaction only then continue with those foods.
