The average weight for a 2 year old boy is 12.2kg, so your son's weight is well below the average for his age.His diet does not appear to be sufficient for a child of his age. Always offer his food before you give him any Nido. He seems to prefer soft food still so mash all his food very well before giving it to him.Try other kinds of porridge in the morning. His teeth may be brown because he is drinking tea. Brush his teeth well twice day using a children's toothpaste. Only use a pea size amount of the toothpaste on the toothbrush.If your son still does not want to eat it may be a good idea to take him back to the clinic and ask the clinic sister to see him again and to advise you further.
