Should I worry, my 3yr old is anemic and underweight (23.5pounds) (36in)..she has always been a picky eater she hardly eats all day. What do I do?
Yes: You should be concerned and have your child seen by a Pediatrician who will identify the reason for the anemia and poor appetite.

Appetite will improve when the anemia improves. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
