Brief Answer:
Would not recommend

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. I will strongly insist you NOT to give Liv-52 syryp to your child. Not only is the safety NOT established in children but there is no proof that it does any good. It will not help in improving the appetite or digestion.

Let me know if I could help further.

Brief Answer:
These medicines can be given

Detailed Answer:
You can give Minmin Syrup which contains Elemental Iron, and Folic Acid as active ingredients You can also give Parnacal Syrup which contains Elemental Calcium, Elemental Magnesium, Elemental Zinc, Phosphorus, and Vitamin D3 as active ingredients. But do not suppose that these are going to bring a change in appetite or digestive capacity.
