If nicip plus is consumed by child of 7 years once then what to do? Please advise

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Bhim, How many tablets the child swallowed, whether the child had any food before swallowing the tablet, weight of the child, etc should be given in detail. If it is just one and after food, do not worry. But in future, be careful to keep all tablets out of reach of children. There are regular tablets supplied in child proof bottles.

8 Nutritious Foods You Should Give To Your Kids

8 Nutritious Foods You Should Give To Your Kids

It is often difficult for most of us to make your kids eat healthy food and keeping them away from junk and unhealthy food is a much bigger task. It is always easy for them to finish off a packet of chips than a cup of vegetables or fruits. Read on to know some of the healthiest foods that your kid should be biting into.

  1. Dairy products: These are a great source of proteins, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and other minerals. In addition, yogurt provides good bacteria. Milk and yogurt can also be included into smoothies which will also give them a blend of some fruits. Butter can be used in toasts and sandwiches as these foods are loved by children. You can replace plain milk with milkshakes, they are tastier and the children love them.
  2. Soups: These are another great source of nutrition, be it chicken or vegetables. They can be a good evening snack and not just prevent the evening hunger pangs but also come packed with a good amount of nutrition and hydration.
  3. Fruits: Each fruit contains different ingredients. Pick fresh seasonal fruits and incorporate them into your child’s diet as they hold a good amount of nutrients. Fruits provide a good supply of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and good sugars.
  4. Whole grains: Try a brown bread instead of white, replace refined flour pizza base with atta pizza base and white pasta with wheat pasta. These whole grains provide a lot more fiber and nutrition compared to the refined flours. The idea again is to let the kids eat any of them but on a rotational basis, so that benefits from all foods are derived.
  5. Vegetables: Get creative when getting the kids to eat vegetables and green leafy vegetables. From soups to salads to curries, try to rotate vegetables, and like fruits, use seasonal ones. They also have chlorophyll which helps improve their energy levels and reduce fatigue.
  6. Fish: One of the best sources of protein and omega-3 fatty acids, it helps in brain development and building immunity in children, making them less prone to illnesses.
  7. Nuts: While walnut is a well-known brain food, almonds are amazing for the skin and hair growth. Pecans are a good source of nutrients too. The rich oils in the nuts help fight diseases and are a great source of energy. Substituting the sugar candy with any of the nuts is a great way to indulge them in healthy snacking.
  8. Eggs: Whatever form, boiled, fried, scrambled, let the child indulge in their choice of eggs. A good source of protein which is very essential for hair, skin, and nails, try to squeeze in 4 eggs a week in your child’s diet.

Ensure these things find a way into the kid’s plate. In addition, some junk or fried stuff is always allowed!

My 4 years son has tested positive for c. The size of induration is 25x30 mm. Is it confirmed TB. Or we should go for any other test ?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
If Mantoux test is 25*30 mm induration after 48 hours in 4 year old,there is high risk of developing a disease if no focus is already suspected. It's a paediatrician's decision to start prophylactic chemotherapy or the proper treatment after examination

It is not good to write drugs without seeing a patient. But you can give syp paracetamol 15 mg/kg per dose 6/4 hourly. It will reduce her bodyache and fever if it is. Will reduce her crankyness.

Hi lybrate-user this is a good idea that you are spacing between kids. This will really help for your health and future babies health. To keep spacing you can use any of the contraceptive which is temporary in nature. You can use condoms, pills specially low estrogen pills which are quiet safe and newer copper t. All the methods are good and absolutely safe. It depend on your choice in what you are comfortable.

Start breastfeeding again. Stop formula. Check your nipples. You must learn proper technique to breastfeed. Sometimes baby's nose get pinched up during BF. So try feeding by holding your breasts properly.
