2.     Fruits: Fruits are healthy and the best dietician in India says that they should be incorporated in every kid’s diet. Apples, banana or any other fruit should be added to kids’ food menu.

Not more than 2 cups of milk is required for childs growth, in addition giving extra milk reduces appetite, and the child does not take the diet, solid food essential for his growth, also excessive milk causes iron deficiency anemia, constipation, additional supplementation of milk may not be required, enhance his other food intake, rice dal, chapati, all of which contain sufficient calcium, outdoor playing and exposing to sunlight provides the require vit d and calcium for his growth.

Give him everything you eat but his food should not have chillies and strong spices, sweet food should be restricted for growing kids because sweet kills appetite.

Never force feed for kid. It backfires almost always. Keep offering and encouraging. Medicines don't work to improve appetite. But new ideas will.

My daughter is about to be 9 years old. Since the age of 5/6 years she has been seen rubbing her genital portion. What could be the likely cause and what as a parent should we do?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Finding your child touching or rubbing his genitals can be very disturbing to parents who mistakenly believe that small children don't have any sexual feelings. These parents may consider the behavior a bad habit, but most of the time, it's not. Babies discover their genitals just as they learn about other body parts -- by reaching for them -- and then learn that they are a source of pleasurable sensations. The innocent repetition of what feels good is an entirely normal part of the process of self-discovery and play. Yet many adults harbor conflicted feelings about masturbation, viewing it as somehow immoral or unhealthy. When parents overreact to genital exploration, a toddler can conclude there is something wrong with him.So as a parent never react negatively when you find her rubbing her genitals but at that time try to distract her mind in some other activity.
