Q:

hi , my sister in-law's baby  is not gaining weight, ..she is now 7 years old, plz can u give advise for her???

How often will you check her weight? Do she complains about tiredness often? Do her all school activities and extra curricular fine?  Kids in this age are mostly lean and underweight also. They have lot activities and learning. Due to high active life.. she may not be gaining. Don't worry. Let her be slim.. Later she will puton.

hi kinjal, is she a fussy eater? if so ur SIL will need to figure out some Fun recipes that will ensure she eats well. does she play a sport? playing in the evenings helps build an apetite. u can load up on bananas, mangoes, stuffed parathas, butter & peanutbutter sandwiches, extra ghee/butter in rice/dal. actually if she is lean and healthy, active in school and not sluggish there shudnt be a problem. then no point in fretting over weight issues. what does her pead say? does she need a supplement?

hi try out full cream milk in the form of various smoothies, increase the intake of dry fruits

if the doctor is not concerned give it a rest. weight has little to do with body strength and stamina. If she's fine, active, strong continue to feed her a healthy diet. i would incorporate natural fats such as ghee, malai and non veg if her diet allows it
