Thank you for this post. My daughter is underweight, though she ain't fussy but eats only small quantities of food. yes patience is required here, but at times I wish she would eat well and not give me a hard time. She is an active child and i would take into account all your suggestions.

This is so good. Many parents obsess over their child's weight and most of us are ill informed. Thank you Ms. Sodhi for the comprehensive tips.
