“Beta, one more!” this is what we keep saying. As parents, we strive to give our children the best of everything, especially when it comes to food and essential nutrition. For our fussy eaters, parents concoct endless innovative ideas to trick them into having a balanced diet. And even after such efforts, many parents are shocked to learn that their child is undernourished.
“Over 60% of children in India weigh right but are undernourished.”
The problem, we may feel, is due to picky eating. But, that’s not true. There are times when the kid is eating properly, has all kinds of health drinks, and fruits and nuts, and is still tested undernourished. Because nutrition and full meals do not mean the same thing. The issue is sometimes medical.
These are just four things that you could easily miss because there is a lack of awareness. Even our elders and pediatricians are oblivious to such advanced information. And there is no way of knowing this about your child’s health unless there is a professional intervention and a full physical and medical checkup is involved.
