My 4 year old daughter is skinny and picky eater what kind calroie rich and nutritious food s should be given to her?

Picky eating: Is a way that a child tries to control you. 1. Ask if she wants the food, if she doesn't, put it in the fridge and warm it for the next meal. 2. If she takes it and fools around with it, ask her "do you want it? If no tell her not to take food that she doesn't want and put it in the fridge for the next meal. 3. Do not substitute. You have to be "cruel to be kind"! ...Read more

My toddler is a  picky eater who refuses fruit and veggies. she's not regular.  any suggestions on adding a fiber supplement?

Fiber supplements: in the shape of cereals and nutrition bars are usually most readily accepted. However my recommendation is to continue to entice her with small servings of different types of greens and fruits, prepared in different manners, taken together with things she may like. Most kids refuse veggies due to their texture, but I have not met many children who rebuff everything under the sun. Persistence ! ...Read more

Which is better for a 3 year old picky eater a multivitamin or pedisure nutrition drink? On top of nutritional meals

Which is better for a 3 year old picky eater a multivitamin or pedisure nutrition drink?  On top of nutritional meals

Whole food vitamin : I like whole food vitamins that give you the equivalent of several servings of fruits and veggies. Good healthy foods should be presented with no ability to "place order" ( unless allergies ). Limit drinks as kids can fill up on milk and juice and not experience hunger. Make a healthy smoothie at home if needed. Find high calorie nutrient dense foods so do not need large quantity to be consumed. ...Read more

Take it away and serve it again from the fridge for the next meal. You are not responsible for his eating. Parents provide, not force.

Can i start my 11 month old bub on cows milk. He has his daily nutrients veggies fish meat fruit dairy and can I give him pentivite. Drops  in hismilk?

Yes: Usually we recommend to start cows milk at 1 year of age. Also try to wean off bottles by one year of age to sippy cup. If your child is eating a balanced diet then he doesnot need pentivite drops. But he needs to have blood test done by one year of age to see if he is anemic. If his hemoglobin is normal then he doesnt need any vitamin drops added to his milk. ...Read more
