If You See Rice Always Vomit?
Hello, good morning! My son is now 3.5 years old every time he sees people eating rice he always vomits even if he eats rice himself vomits. And if you eat rice you have to use a lot of sauce and don’t want to use vegetable or fish as a side dish, so it’s only rice and sauce. Sometimes after running “he also vomits. Does my child have an abnormality? And how to find a solution, thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
When they are 3 years old, like adults, children are generally able to sort out which foods they like and which they don't. Therefore, children can become more indulgent in consuming certain foods, but can shut their mouths tightly when offered other foods. This condition does not always indicate an abnormality.
The nausea and vomiting that your child experiences when consuming certain rice or side dishes may arise because of an excessive dislike of these foods. This condition can stimulate the parietal cells in the stomach wall to produce excess stomach acid, causing nausea. It could also, this nausea and vomiting occur due to other causes, for example:
Choking, for example due to eating while running, laughing, or sobbing GERD (gastroesohageal reflux disease) Gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa) Viral or bacterial infection of the digestive tract Infection of other organ systems Malabsorption, intolerance, or food poisoning, and so If your child does not want to eat rice at all, then this can still be overcome by providing other sources of carbohydrates, such as potatoes, misua, oats, wheat, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, and so on. However, if your child does not want to eat meat, fish or other side dishes at all, it is feared that this condition will cause their nutritional needs not to be fulfilled properly and your child's growth can be disrupted.
Therefore, you try to do the following steps:
Serve food attractively, be more sensitive in paying attention to what your child likes. Vary the daily food menu, you don't have to always have rice, but you can also change it with other menu variants. If your child really likes soup, then serve food that is soup. Rich nutrition in food broths using healthy broths or oils, such as olive oil, coconut oil, canola oil Do not force children to eat, teach them to eat alone (not alone), and make children feel happy when eating Avoid getting kids to snack carelessly or consume instant food Make sure you keep the food and drinks that your child consumes clean so that they don't cause an infection Give children understanding, so they don't sort food to keep it healthy If the above steps don't work to overcome your child's complaints, there's nothing wrong with getting your child checked You go directly to a pediatrician for further evaluation and treatment.
I hope this helps.
