No child's appetite
Modern children prefer the usual soups, side dishes and salads food from fast food restaurants like McDonald's or Rostiks. Now the parents face a more serious task: to attract domestic food to the attention of their own children. Against this background, a child's lack of appetite is not considered a huge problem.
Naturally, nutrition for the growing organism is important, so do not let this matter go by itself. No child's appetite? We must first determine the reason for his absence. Your baby may not be hungry, because he recently had a bite of a sandwich, candy or something similar. If the reason lies in this, then do not worry, just make sure that the child does not eat an hour before eating.
If he does not have an appetite for several days, then an alarm should be sounded. It is best in this situation to consult a pediatrician who will be able to examine your baby and establish the cause. It should be noted that for colds all children have a sharp decrease in appetite.
Many parents, as soon as they notice that the child has no appetite, begin to swear. Of course, they think that such a phenomenon is just a childish whim, but one should not ignore other reasons. Once you notice that the baby has no appetite, measure his temperature and see if any spots appear on his body.
Do all symptoms indicate an illness? Then call the pediatrician, so he has prescribed the right treatment. Despite the disease, the baby still needs to eat normally. Experts advise in this period to give him only that food, which the baby will be easier to digest. This includes soups and some cereals.
What other reasons can be an excuse that your child does not have an appetite? Children's doctors say that this can be a symptom of stress. The child's psyche is not yet settled, so any change in family relationships, in a kindergarten or school can lead to stress. If the reason really lies in this, then you need to accurately find out from the child what happened, and then find with him a way out of this situation. After you do all this, most likely, the child will again have an appetite.
Still have no appetite? Then try to resort to some folk remedies. As practice shows, in children, and in adults, you can artificially cause an appetite. These include cumin, dill seeds. Sometimes fennel or coriander helps. Naturally, in the dry version, no child will eat this, so brew them in boiling water for 10 minutes. It is best to give this solution to the baby about an hour before a meal.
Special attention should be given to adolescents. Why? Modern young girls and guys are very serious about their appearance, or rather - to the figure. That is why in adolescence, the lack of appetite can be caused by bulimia or even anorexia, and these are very serious diseases.
Lack of appetite in a child is a serious violation, therefore, it should be treated with special attention.
