there is nothing to worry..these levels usully go down when child doesnt get proper diet as he shud..u shud try weaning off..make ur son to taste diffent foods..u must give him 2 solid meals per day as his body now requires..i know its tough job but u hav to do it..make sure all food is dfrnt in taste and colors..introduce him to new world of flavors through fun and play

It is best to discuss medical reports with the doctor so that you understand the same well. In terms of food offer small portions, multiple times a day. Do not expect the child to sit like an adult and eat three big meals. Remember portion size for this age is 1/4 the portion size of an adult so if you eat two rotis your child is expected to eat about 1/2 roti plus a few spoons a veggies and a small bowl of dal.
