Thank you for this additional information. If your son is only 80 cm tall then both his height and weight seem to be low which could indicate stunting - a situation that needs to be address ASAP. I hope that you will be able to pinpoint what is making him refuse food. If he drinks 3 bottles of milk and/or Pediasure of 175 ml and drinks every drop (which you say he does not do any way), then he would only be ingesting 525 ml of milk/Pediasure a day which is the recommended amount for a child of his age. He is, therefore, not getting too much milk/Pediasure and he should also be eating infant cereals, pureed vegetables and fruit, purred cooked meat, finger foods, etc to ensure an adequate intake of nutrients. If necessary get a second opinion from another Paediatrician, but do try consulting a Paediatric Psychiatrist or Psychologist and a Dietitian.
