thanks for the query.
The average weight for a 1 yr old child is about 10 kg or about 22 pounds.. So your child is underweight
. You need to give her a balanced diet and not just fats. Food rich in iron content will increase your child's hemoglobin
Hence you need to give her rice, potatoes, breads for carbohydrate
, meat and eggs for protein, lots of green leafy vegetables, other vegetables like peas and carrots, bananas, guavas, grapes, etc which are rich in iron and vitamins
. Milk can be given not more than 3 times a day as it may suppress appetite. Do not feed your child with biscuits or other snacks in between. They cause satiety and prevent your child from eating during meal times.
Ensure that your child eats with you at meal times. This prevents fussiness.
You may have to give a short 3 month course of iron tonic after discussion with your pediatrician
to initially bring her hemoglobin to normal. You will find her appetite increases and she will become alert and cheerful on starting treatment.
Hope your child gets better soon. A healthy child will become a healthy adult... bye
