Q.

Eating

Hi Doc

My daughter has recently been sick and her appetite has diminshed dramatically. Is there anything I can give her to increase her appetite, she has lost weight due to her illness.
And as she has recovered her appetite hasnt.

Is there a supplement i can give.

She is 10 months old and has never been above the 25th percentile in weight. She is really little and can hardly afford to be losing weight.


Thanks

Make sure that your baby's nose is not blocked as this often causes children to be off their food. You can try her on a supplement such as Creche Guard as this just may help her appetite as well as boosting her immunity.
