Detailed Answer:
Hello again,

Hypothyroidism(decreased thyroid hormone) can cause such symptoms. In children it is also important to identify any stress factors at school, home, or other enviornmental they interact with. Stress and anxiety can present as chronic fatigue, decreased appetite in children.
Please be advised to follow up with a pediatrician to check thyroid function test and also explore further into possible stress/anxiety.

Hope this answers your questions
