Detailed Answer:
Hello,

What is the weight? Is it 14.8 kg? If so, he is underweight. There are high chances of malnutrition. Is he clear from all diseases? Did you consult a Pediatrician or kids' doctor? Did you consult a pediatric nutritionist?

Sioplex L is Vitamin B1 and B2 supplement. It may be useful if the kid is deficient, but it's safe. Similarly R B Tone kid syrup is only supplemented for food and does not improve the eating ability or improve appetite grossly. Both of them are marginal advantage.

Hope I have answered your query.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

You can give him vegetable soups and chicken soups 1/2 hr before food time as it stimulates appetite during meal time. Give solid foods during meal time and no liquids at all during meal timings.
You can give Syrup Apetamin thrice a day before food.

Check his hemoglobin level and iron level. If they are low you can concentrate on meat and poultry. Deworming also helps in this age group to absorb better nutrients.
