Can neopeptine be given to a child who is a picky eater?
Hi, I am 33 years old. I have a son who is a very picky eater. He is now 20 months old and still didn't know how to drink from the bottle. I use the syringe to feed hime since he is 3 months old. He didn't like to eat much. I gave him 21 oz of whole milk a day. I am thinking of giving him neopeptine to try, should it it OK?
Neopeptine is an enzyme supplement that is supposed to help in digestion in case there are related problems. Although it is ok to be given and can be safely given to a child of 20 months age, I doubt whether it would do any good and I would not suggest giving it. It is not unusual for children to be picky eaters. But milk is now supposed to be an optional food component with cereal based semi solid diet supposed to constitute the bulk of the feeds. Basically the child now needs a mashed version of adult food low on spices and oil.
