The poor appetite of their kids is a common complaint among mothers. In most of the cases, kids make up for their poor diet by eating more at the next meal. For kids over 1 year old, appetites increase and decrease according to age, energy levels etc. This is a common problem among young children between the ages of 2 to 6 years. However, if weight loss accompanies your toddler loss of appetite, then you must consult a pediatrician to identify the cause & correct it. Causes of Loss of Appetite In Children: Here are 10 main reasons for toddler no appetite: 1. Slow Growth Rate: Changes in growth can cause an appetite slump in children. During the first year, children grow rapidly. But after the first birthday the growth of the child slows down, and she may eat less food now. During this time, a decline in appetite is perfectly normal. 2. Sickness: Illness can often cause a significant loss of appetite in children. If your child is suffering from sore throat, stomach flu, diarrhea, headache, fever or other symptoms, then she may eat lesser than what she normally eats. Thankfully, most of the children recover their appetite when they get better. 3. Stress: Stress can have many negative effects on toddlers and young children, including loss of appetite. If you find your child is losing interest in eating or having a hard time sleeping, then. To cure the poor appetite of your kid, you need to identify the cause of her stress and alleviate it. Some common causes of stress during childhood are: •Family issues like a death in the family, death of a pet or the birth of a sibling. •Bullying •Inability to cope with academic pressure and the impractical expectations of parents. 4. Depression: Depression can be another reason for child loss of appetite. Most of the parents mistake depression for sadness. But sadness and depression are not the same. It is important for you to understand the difference between sadness and depression so that your child can get the help she needs. Feelings of sadness go away with the passage of time, but depression does not. Depression not only makes the child sad, but also interferes with her normal life. If your child shows a lack of interest in activities that she previously enjoyed performing, then chances are that she may be suffering from depression. A change in eating habits is a strong indicator of depression. You may need to seek medical care to help your child come out of depression. 5. Anorexia Nervosa: Sometimes, in a bid to ape their screen idols children develop a psychological aversion to eating. They try to go without eating as long as possible. Even when they eat, they choose a low-fat food and later feel guilty about eating it. If you can relate your child to this food fad, she may be suffering from Anorexia Nervosa. You must take her to an eating disorder specialist. The specialist will tell you how to help your child regain a healthy appetite (1). 6. Medications: Several medications can take a toll on your child’s appetite. If the pediatrician prescribed antibiotics for your child recently, chances are she may be suffering from a poor appetite. A loss of appetite in a child is a common side effect of antibiotics (2). 7. Anemia: Anemia is another possible cause of the decline in appetite among children. A low iron count is common in kids who don’t consume an iron-rich diet. Children suffering from anemia seem weaker, tired and irritable than others. If left untreated, anemia can interfere with your child’s development and school performance. Get a blood test done if you suspect anemia in your child. 8. Intestinal Worms: Intestinal worms can cause loss of appetite in kids. Worms enter into the kid’s digestive system and live there like a parasite, causing intestinal bleeding, loss of appetite, dysentery, etc. 9. Constipation: Irregular bowel movements in children can lead to constipation. Tips To Prevent A Loss Of Appetite In Children: Here are some handy tips to prevent a loss of appetite in children: Offer food that is also a visual treat for your kids. You can present healthy foods in a delicious avatar. •Do not argue or scold the children during the mealtime. •Adjust the meal schedules so that you serve food only when your child is hungry. •Encourage your child to make healthy food choices. •Allow your child to snack between the meals. •Serve small portions at regular intervals. •Encourage your child to be more physically active. •Do not force your child to eat if she is not hungry. As a parent, demanding that she finishes the food on her plate is a bad idea. Remember, it is common for children to lose their appetite, so don’t be alarmed every time it happens. If your child is healthy, happy and can sleep well, then there is no need to worry. But a prolonged loss of appetite needs medical attention. So keep an eye on your child’s eating habits.

Symptoms and Myths About Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and How to Spot Them in Children

MD - Homeopathy, Doctor of Homeopathic Medicine (H.M.D., BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Symptoms and Myths About Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and How to Spot Them in Children

Children generally tend to be fairly over active and have lesser attention spans. However, when this tends to get into their performance at school and in general with getting along with other children it may be a sign of ADD or attention deficit disorder. Let's look at some of the common symptoms of this disorder.

Symptoms of ADD:

  1. Problems in staying focused: One of the very basic symptom is that children will often be very inattentive even during classes and will be easily distracted by small things.
  2. Problems in trying to remember things or difficulty in following instructions: Children with attention deficit disorder tend to have issues with remembering things and if given tasks, being unable to complete as they can't remember instructions properly.
  3. Issues with organizing, planning and trying to finish tasks: Due to the lack of attention, kids have problems retaining information and cannot plan or finish tasks given to them on a daily basis.
  4. Easily bored or loses interest: Even if a child with ADD starts with something they like, interest may wane off quickly. Thus it is difficult to make them stick to a specific work schedule which may require regular practice.
  5. Lack of attention to details and making careless mistakes: This is another trait of children with attention deficit disorder. They may be able to complete a task, but it will be fraught with mistakes as they wouldn't have much attention to detail.
  6. Has a tendency to not listen when someone is speaking to them: This is also very common and is usually tied to being easily distracted and thus will drift off or not listen to when someone is speaking to them.

Some Myths about ADD:

  • All kids with ADD are hyperactive
  • They will eventually grow out of it
  • Medication is the only option to treat ADD
  • ADD is not really a disorder and kids need to be trained better

Most of these are half truths and the extent of the problems varies from child to child. Only proper counseling will be able to diagnose the extent of the problem and what needs to be done.

How to spot ADD in Children:

ADD can be spotted in children aged below 7 years via certain symptoms. Apart from the ones mentioned above, children generally tend be abrasive towards others and can make embarrassing comments quite often. They also change tasks very quickly without completing any of them. Any distraction would force them to change their track. It is best to go to a child specialist to get your child checked out for possible symptoms.

I am looking for a good dentist. My son who is 3.5 years old, has carries in front teeth. Is that curable?

I am looking for a good dentist.  My son who is 3.5 years old,  has carries in front teeth. Is that curable?
Certainly curable. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning and artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food or milk after dinner to avoid tooth decay. Brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean the tongue with a tongue cleaner.

My daughter has birth mark on face. That birth mark can be remove by any medical treatment ? She is now 1 years old. Suggest me.

DMB
Pediatrician, Chennai
Dear you have not specified the size or location on the face of the birthmark. If it is reddish, it is usually a vascular malformation called salmon patches (naevus simplex), port wine stains and strawberry naevus. Salmon patches are present at birth, are falt and 50% disappear by the time the child is a year old. Portwine stains are more extensive and get purple and can worsen. They are treated by laser and cosmetic camouflage. Strawberry nevus are soft and raised and appear at 5 to 6 weeks of life. They resolve by three years. Beta blockers like propranalol have shown to be successful in strawberry naevi.

My son is 9 months old is rota virus injection is compulsory ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
Studies of the rotavirus vaccine have shown that it can prevent about 74% of rotavirus infections. More importantly, it can prevent approximately 98% of severe infections and 96% of hospitalizations from rotavirus. Please there are two brands of the rotavirus vaccine -- rotateq (rv5) and rotarix (rv1). Both vaccines are given orally, not as a shot. The only difference is the number of doses that need to be given. Please with rotateq, three doses are required. They should be given at ages 2 months, 4 months, and 6 months. Rotarix only requires two doses -- at 2 months and 4 months. Please the vaccine may be given at the same time as other vaccines, and the american academy of pediatrics recommends that the rotavirus vaccine be included as part of the routine immunizations given to infants. Please so if you give your child is protected against rotaviral diarrhoea or he may or may not get infected. So it is not given as compulsorily or routinely in our national immunisation schedule. It is an optional vaccine.

General Physician,

This is not vomiting but possetting. In all babies this is there due to lack of strengthening of a muscle where food pipe joins stomach. By 6 months to 1 year this problem will be over. After feed, you burp the child by putting her on your shoulder or on the thigh with stomach pressing on your thigh. You keep monitoring weight every month and you will be happy that all feed have not gone wasted! for regular advice on child rearing you ask privately and be in touch with me as your personal doctor. Regards.

It will not come again if you lose weight and have a healthy lifestyle and diet and exercise. Yes you can conceived naturally too. First periods after delivery can come as late as 9 month. But please rule out pregnancy if in doubt. Also if it does not come by 12 months c your gynecologist.
