Hello Ms. Ika. Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Children who are 12 months of age or older should be able to eat family food or adult food. The source of nutrition for your child should come from the food he eats, not from formula milk or breast milk. Children need to get a good source of carbohydrates (rice, bread, corn), protein (eggs, fish, chicken, beef), and fat (oil, coconut milk, avocado). The best milk for children under 24 months is breast milk. ASI is given as a child, but ASI is not the main source of nutrition, as I mentioned before. Because your child is currently underweight, your child needs to be examined by a pediatrician. Pediatricians will see whether there are signs of malnutrition or developmental disorders in children due to malnutrition. Your doctor may suggest giving special milk to help restore the nutritional status. Poor nutrition must be handled properly because the growth of his brain will be disrupted if he does not get proper nutrition. In addition to providing special milk, the doctor will also provide suggestions for the amount, type, and eating schedule that is appropriate for the child based on the results of the examination. If the child is difficult to be given special milk or given adult food, the child needs to be put on an intervals of food for a while until his weight starts to increase as targeted. Bring your child's control routinely according to instructions from the pediatrician.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
