Live Chat - Worried about your child's growth? Chat with an ExpertARCHIVED
Oct 26, 2017 | 3 : 00 PM to 4 : 00 PM
Let us tell you something today: It is normal to be concerned about your child’s growth. You are likely to feel anxious, at some time or the other – this is especially true in the prime of your child’s growth phase, that is 3 – 9 years. And the common worry point is either height or weight, or both!
Two most common growth concerns are height and weight…
As your child moves on from the toddler phase and starts going to school, the one thing that happens is an unconscious or conscious comparison of your child’s growth with other growing children, in school or neighbourhood or just about anywhere.
What can you do to help your child achieve his/her full growth potential?
Good nutrition, adequate sleep, regular exercise, stress-free environment – are the foundation of growth. However, these are just the basics. You need to know and understand more. For instance: Do you know which essential nutrients (food items) help to achieve optimum growth? Do you know that growth and immunity are inter-linked? A compromised immunity can easily affect the growth of your child. Do you know that exercise stimulates the growth hormone that positively impacts height? Well… the more you know, the more you can do for your child…
