Hello, Mr. Wahyu Dwi Sasongko. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Determination of the nutritional status of children requires information on body weight, length / height, age, and gender. How old is your child's age at this time? What gender? What is the body length? To find out whether a child is classified as well nourished or lacking, we suggest consulting a pediatrician directly so that a comprehensive history and examination can be carried out.
In general, children over the age of 6 months can be given complementary foods (MPASI). MPASI has an important role to support the growth and development of children because after children are over 6 months of age, ASI is unable to meet the energy and nutritional needs of children. Good food must contain carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins (especially vitamin A), and minerals (especially iron).
There are no specific rules in granting MPASI. Since the age of 6 months, children can be given various side dishes, such as meat, chicken, eggs, and fish. Protein is a building block that is important to support the growth of a child's weight. For children aged 12-24 months, it is advisable to give 3-4 meals and 1-2 times a snack (snack) every day. The portion of the meal is recommended to be increased gradually to three quarters of a 250 mL bowl each meal. The food provided is sufficiently finely chopped / chopped family food.
As a suggestion, make a child's eating schedule regularly. Don't force children to eat. It is also important to always maintain cleanliness in preparing and giving MPASI.
Do not hesitate to consult with a pediatrician if you have difficulty in feeding the child. To enrich insight, you can read articles about MPASI. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
