Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
At first glance, if you look at coconut milk that comes from coconut which contains lots of fat, you might think that consumption of coconut, including its processed products (namely coconut milk, coconut oil, etc.) can increase body fat deposition, thereby increasing the weight of those who consume it. This assumption is actually incorrect. Many studies have proven otherwise.
Coconut oil is processed from fresh raw materials which are processed with or without heating to produce oil. Head oil contains a lot of calories and saturated fat which is good for helping to increase body weight. However, you also need to know that head oil also contains a lot of medium chain triglycerides, which are fatty acids that are very good for their function to increase the speed of metabolism. Not only that, there are also many studies that prove that consumption of coconut oil can reduce appetite. Hence, the effect of increasing body weight resulting from consumption of coconut oil is insignificant.
Increasing children's weight can be done in various ways. The most important thing is, before you measure it first, whether your child's weight is classified as normal according to his age, or is it really less. You can easily determine this by comparing your child's growth chart with the graph on the KMS (Kartu Menuju Sehat). You can also visit the nearest health facility directly so that measurements can be made more objectively.
If it is true that your child's weight is less than the standard age, you can check with the doctor directly for evaluation, whether your child's weight loss occurs due to a disease, or not. Here are steps you can take to help increase your child's weight:
Give children a variety of foods every day Ensure that the child's nutritional adequacy is met through their diet. Give children healthy snacks, such as fruit, jelly, juice. If the child lacks appetite, you can give him supplements that contain ginger extract (only give when the child is already aged over 2 years) Keep the child's immune system so they don't get sick easily. Encourage the child to be active in activities and exercise. Keep the environment around the child clean. That's the explanation from us. For more details, please consult directly with a pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
