I have a one year old grand -daughter, but she has not started walking yet ! . She is apparently , quite normal , very active but when we lift her we can feel that her bones are quite flexible, rather delicate. Unlike other children who have supple , firm bones . We have afforded her the best diet that is possible . What can be the reason?

Not walking by one year of age is not too late. Some children will have little delayed milestones. In one to two months he will start walking if not with physiotherapy it will be get corrected. Do not compare with other children. Nothing like hard or soft bones will be there.

5 Healthy Habits That Every Child Should Follow

Diploma in Paediatrics, MD (Physician)

5 Healthy Habits That Every Child Should Follow

Few things in life take longer than habits to be inculcated and eventually to die out. Every parent tries in his or her way to teach the child certain healthy habits, those that they wish would be followed long enough to be internalized by them. Certain healthy habits that every child should follow are:

  1. Include a lot of vegetables in the diet: There is an array of vegetables available in the market, which is replete with rich nutritional values. Though children are generally averse to the idea of eating vegetables, it is your duty to inculcate in them the habit of eating vegetables and constantly remind them of their rich nutritional benefits.
  2. Never skip breakfast: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and is often the most ignored. Most children have the propensity to skip breakfast if they are late and generally they are seldom reprimanded by their parents. As a parent, you must make it a point not to take this lightly and severely insist on a healthy breakfast every morning.
  3. Indulge in physical activities: With the advent and easy access of technology, going out to play in has become a distant reality, one that is never explored. However, it goes without saying that nothing can substitute the physical and mental benefits that a physical activity entails. It not only keeps the body of your child fit but also helps in keeping the mind fresh.
  4. Read daily: Few things in life can be as rewarding and fulfilling as reading a book. However the habit does not come easy and as a parent it is your responsibility to induce in them this. Try to make your child read a few pages everyday till they take it up themselves out of their volition.
  5. Drink water and skip the soda: The many flavored sodas, which are available serve as a more palatable alternative to the drab water for the children. Though the choice may seem convenient, it must be snipped off right from the beginning. Sodas are packed with harmful preservatives and should be duly avoided by children. Instead, they must choose the bottle of water to quench the thirst.

My baby is 9 months nw and is active but his weight is below 8 kg .should I use any vitamis to increase his weight

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatrician, Delhi
At 9 months, 8kg weight is about OK. Multivits dont help in weight gain as such. Give your baby some khichdi, suji kheer, and other home food with a little extra butter/ghee. Continue breast feeding . You could give bananas, and fruit juice too. Increasing complimentary feeding like this will help in weight gain.

Get a complete blood tests done if everything is fine as per her pediatrician, then just keep patience. At around this age such things are very common. There are repeated episodes of viral illness.

Healthy Habits Every Mother Should Teach Her Kids!

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi

It’s not always easy to encourage your children to eat a balanced diet.

Eating breakfast, even if it’s just a banana and a glass of milk, kick-starts the body and makes it easier to maintain lasting energy throughout the day.

It’s easy to reach for chips or biscuits when you and your children feel like nibbling on something, but these snacks tend to be low in nutrients and high in calories.

Make water the drink of choice at meal times, and keep juice and sweet drinks as occasional treats.

You decide which foods to buy and when to serve them. Though kids will pester their parents for less nutritious foods, adults should be in charge when deciding which foods are regularly stocked in the house. Kids won’t go hungry.


While juice has valuable nutrients and gives a concentrated energy boost for active, growing bodies, kids should go for water first when they are thirsty, not sugar-sweetened drinks.

Kids should start eating Better not everything they get.

  • Start the day with a healthy breakfast.

  • Let kids help plan one meal each week and eat together as often as possible.

  • Eat slowly.

  • Eat more vegetables and fresh fruits.

  • Eat more whole grains (e.g., oats, brown rice, rye, crackers, whole-wheat pasta).

  • Drink plenty of fluids.

  • Serve a variety of foods.

Be a role model and eat healthy yourself.

When trying to teach good eating habits, try to set the best example possible.
