Thank you for choosing HCM...
Loss of appetite is common in this age group..
Until & unless the baby's activity is fine and there's no other illness no need to worry..
But its the responsibility of parents to see to it that he eats quality food by making it more acceptable and tasty..
Even if he's eating less, giving quality food is very important which supplies him with all nutrients, vitamins and minerals..
Ideally food should contain cereals, pulses, green leafy vegetables, fruits, milk..nonveg food also can be given..
For worm infestation five him TAB ALBENDAZOLE 400mg (1tab today night followed by 1 after 15days)..
Deworming should be done once in 6 months...
Thank you...
