hi madhvi... you kid is growing fine.. as long as he is healthy and does not have any other health problems.. do not worry.. just focus on giving him healthy foods like fruits, mashed veggies, ragi porridge.. you can add skim milk powder in his food increase the caloric level..make sure he eats every 2 hours.. an active healthy child is all you need him to be..
