Hi lybrate-user, taking food for one doesn't matter if you are eating at least salads and fruits on other time. Body needs carbs, proteins as per your daily routine. If the daily activity is more and food intake is low it may create weakness and in long term may have bigger health issues. So keep track of your intake and activities along with good water intake and ample sleep. Feel free to ask more. Thanks.

What foods can be given to child who is 5 years and 11 years old to increase the hemoglobin level and increase in calcium.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Anything dark in nature eg fruits, vegetables, cereals contain iron. So you can give beet, grapes, dark green leafy vegetables Nachani, meat etc. For calcium milk, custered apples, cabbage contains lot of calcium.

Baby learns to speak what he hears. His stammering may be due to your speech. It may be resolved. Encourage him to speak slowly. Speech therapist may be helpful.

1. From the 7th month onward you can start feeding thrice a day as proper breakfast, lunch and early dinner. Now also breast feeding is the major source of nourishment to the baby, so please do not quit breast feeding. The feeding times can be around 9 am, 1 pm and 5 pm 2. The quantity for each feed in this month will be roughly the size of your baby’s fist and in terms of liter around 90 to 100 ml. 3. The consistency can be little thick and should stay in the spoon without spilling off. 4. Always feed a baby seated and not in sleeping position. 5. Sterilize all the utensils that are being used for cooking and feeding. 6. Please follow the 3 Day Rule before introducing any new food. I have structured the charts in a such way that the baby is gradually introduced to heavier diets, so I would advice you to follow the same order.

Hi lybrate-user repeated cough usually due to allergy in children. The main concern on the cold is not to expose him to the allergens and cold food.

Hi Farah... if you have consulted a qualified doctor then you should not doubt it... Being a homoeopath I would not have advised paracetamol like that... as it will never cure fever... instead it is better to take proper treatment whenever there is fever...

in those rare cases, formula feed is allowed. but breast milk is still most preferred. at least for first six months. you can not judge the status of immune system today. but my advise is to give healthy emotional environment along with nutrition. then only your baby will have strong immune system.
