What are the alternative ways to improve child's appetite?
User rating for this question
Hello Doctor, My 1 year 3 months old son Aarush has stopped eating food. He skips food at all three times a day. We realized he needs change in food taste and tried new food items. But things haven’t improved. He tastes everything but doesn't eat stomach full. Because of this, he’s still continuing with at least 1 milk feed during night. Please advise. Is it just a phase where he isn't eating well and will soon be over? Does he need any medicine to improve appetite? Best Regards, Vijayasri
