Patient discussion about guide

Q. I need food guide for underweight. This is Liam. I had three kids and all are underweight? I don’t know how to make them healthy. I need food guide for underweight. They refuse to have healthy food. How can I get him to eat more and eat healthy, without having to force them?

A. Liam, do not give them too much of juice as it often contain more sugar and less vitamins than fresh or frozen fruits. After a period, give them healthy drink (like milk) instead of juice. If your child is more active than the food they had, then the child will surely be termed as an underweight. So make sure to give, more energizing foods like carbohydrates for an over active kid.
