Pediatrics/Need advice for my daughter health


Dear Doctor,

please note that my daughter is 2 years old and her weight is around 10 kg. She is picky eater and moody. She eats the fruits and vegetables in small amounts but not having proper lunch and dinner. i gave her pediasure for 2 months but it doesn't work.  She s very skinny. She is very active but i am worried related to her health. She drinks double cream milk twice or thrice a day. Please advice what shall i do that she put on weight.

If she is active and playful there is no need to  worry. There is no special for a child unless advised by a doctor for specific reasons. Do not force her to eat. Her weight is within normal limits.

I can answer questions in the field of general pediatrics-questions regarding the development of children, immunization, feeding, weaning and common childhood problems like fever, cough and recurrent illness. Many of these topics are dealt with on my website Healthy Family Happy Family. Often a mother imagines that her child is sick when in fact there is no problem. Such a mother needs explanation and reassurance. I will not be able to answer specific questions regarding diagnosis.


I have more than 20 years of experience as a Pediatrician. I have been involved in the care of premature babies and also many critically ill children.

I am attached to a Mission hospital in a small town in the Kannur dist. of Kerala in India. I also have my private clinic in a nearby place.

Most of my articles are on my website Healthy Family Happy Family. I have also contributed articles to Ezine Articles and Article City. I believe that Pediatrics is more than treating diseases in children. I advocate holistic approach to child health and problems of children giving equal importance to physical, psychological and spiritual health of children.
