Hello Mr.Bansal;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
It is not normal to go to pass stools after every meal and also see if the stools he is passing if they are lose stools then it is a sign of intestinal infection due to amoebiasis or even cyst of worms.Please ask him whether there is intestinal pain after taking food because of which he has to go to pass stools.If the answer is yes please consult a paediatrician and he will examine him and prescribe antibiotic like metronidazole in the proper dose required and the problem should settle.

Hi Kokil, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

Thanks for the Query.

First get your kid examined by a Pediatrician so that he can examine him and rule out any underlying pathology.

Take him to a Dietitian, so that he/she can plan a diet meal which suits his Personality. According to his age, he requires 1,000 to 1,400 Kcal per day and it should include Fat, calcium, Proteins, carbohydrates, Vitamins, Sodium and Fiber, which you can get them in Fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables.

1.) Respect your child's appetite, If your child isn't hungry, don't force a meal or snack. Likewise, don't bribe or force your child to clean his or her plate.
2.) Serve meals and snacks at about the same times every day.

Good Luck.

Take Care.
