Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, how exactly is your child's age now? What about the weight and height? Are there other complaints your child has experienced besides decreasing appetite?
Decreased child's appetite can occur due to various factors, for example:
Inappropriate eating patterns, for example if you often force children to eat, accustom children to eat while playing gadgets, punish children when they don't want to eat, provide less varied food menus
Indigestion, for example due to infection, intolerance, malabsorption, allergies, poisoning
Chronic diseases, for example tuberculosis, intestinal worms, malignancies
Discomfort in his body, for example when experiencing cough, runny nose, fever, bloating, satiety, toothache, and so on
In relation to milk, your child may also become unwilling to eat due to the uncomfortable sensation he feels after consuming the milk. This discomfort can signify many things, ranging from intolerance, allergies, or other causes. Satiety due to drinking lots of milk can also make a child's appetite reduced.
There is no need to give children formula milk. If your child is less than 2 years old, and you are still able to give him enough milk, then just give him milk. Also give your child enough regular food every day (2 to 3 times a day) with a varied menu tailored to the child's favorite taste. Limit excessive snacks so that children learn to recognize hunger. Do not get used to eating children carelessly, try to make their own children's food, with clean materials, do not contain excessive flavoring. Never force children to eat. Also teach children to eat alone as early as possible (but while accompanied). Make eating a fun process for children, don't make it a habit for children to eat accompanied by gadgets or excessive toys.
If with the steps above your child's condition is still not improving, or your child's appetite decrease looks so disturbing that his weight has decreased dramatically, you should not stay silent. Check your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician to further evaluate possible causes of the condition. If it turns out there is a disease, of course eating patterns alone are not enough to overcome the condition of your child. It may be that the doctor will recommend that your child undergo additional examinations, for example x-rays, Mantoux tests, laboratories, ultrasound, and so on.
Hope this helps ...
