Q.

Allergies

My baby is 18 months and has had allergies for dairy products since birth, i recently took him for immunisation and the nurse told me he is under weight by 5kg, this is frustrating because i give him fresh vegetables with meat and fruits but he is not picking up weight.

Please advice!!

Paediatrician

He may have other food allergies. First he needs to be tested for this-ask your paediatrician. Once you know what foods affect him you need the advice of a dietician.
