Hello Mrs. Yonna.
Thank you for the question.
Child growth and development is a measure of children's growth to be said to be optimal. Growth is the increase in organ cells that can be measured such as body length or height, body weight, and head circumference. Meanwhile, development is the increase in function and structure as well as the maturation of an organ such as taking objects, speaking or speaking, walking, and interacting socially and in the surrounding environment. Disorders of the growth and development of children are caused by genetic factors and environmental factors.
The age of a 13 month mother's child having 8.1 kg of weight can be said to be underweight according to the WHO curve for age versus body weight. The length of the mother's child compared to its weight is said to be less according to the WHO curve. Meanwhile, age compared to height is said to be good or normal according to the WHO curve.
From the interpretation of the WHO curve, it is found that the mother's child is underweight both for age and height, so it is better for mothers to provide nutrition according to the child's age of 13 months.
Underweight children can be caused by various things such as:
Lack of proper food intake for children of his age often experiences illness, both allergies and infections, errors in the child's diet. I can give advice:
consult with a pediatrician, give breast milk according to the baby's wishes if the mother is still breastfeeding, provide a variety of family foods, sliced foods or family foods including animal food sources and fruits rich in vitamin A, and vegetables, give a 3/4 cup to 1 portion bowl at each meal (1 bowl = 250 ml) give food 3-4 times a day offer a snack 1 or 2 times a day between meals Nutridrink can be given after consulting a doctor beforehand. So, it's a good idea to consult first.
