Thanks for writing to health care magic.
A 5 year old weighing 11kg is underweight
for her age.
First we should find out if it is only diet related or some other problem is there.
Does your kid have any other problem?
Is she having any recurrent episodes of fever?
Are there any other associated complaints?
Does your baby look pale?
One need not give costly powders etc for the growth of the baby.
A balanced diet rich in proteins
is good enough. Egg is a complete food. Milk contains most of the requirements.
A handful of groundnuts contain the proteins that are present in your so called and very much advertised costly powders.
You may contact me with further details on the following URL...........
In such scenario the questions are directly forwarded to me .............. and I can answer your queries regarding your kid online regularly.
Hope this helps.
