Our expert says:
I would recommend that you have your 16-month-old daughter assessed by a Paediatrician and/or a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). They will have to check her weight and height to see if she is overweight and also determine what is causing her to be constantly hungry. Her weight is already lose to that of a 3-year-old child, so it is important to get some expert help before she becomes obese. Constant hunger in a well-fed child is also a signal that there may be an underlying health problem.
So please take your lassie to be examined ASAP.
