thanks for writing to healthcare magic

is your child not taking just milk or nothing at all

if he is not taking only milk its not a matter of real concern

if he is not taking any thing at all one should be definitely concerned

one cause of poor appetite could be viral hepatits

does his eyes look yellow

another common cause could be anaemia

is he looking pale

if he is loosing weight then one should get the child examined

if you have a record of his weight pl update that

hope this helps

take care
