Weight

Hi Doc

My son is now 14months and his weight is 10.3kg and height 79cm. His pead says his weight is average for his weight asn does not raise any concern, but my problem is he looks a bit small compared to other kids his age.

He is a fussy eater, but i try to give him a balanced meals bit by bit. Anything i can give him to give him an appetide or should i just continue with the way things are at the moment.

Thanks
