Hi Doctor,

1 Answer:

Dear Anna,

an active child is a child who is healthy, at least physically. At least that principle is important to understand because children who are physically unhealthy do not allow them to remain active. Too active children can be caused by intake of too high calories or too much sugar. However, you should not immediately reduce your calorie intake because that is not necessarily the main cause. The use of sufor, which usually uses added sweeteners, could be a factor, while it should not be given at least before the age of 6 months, because until the age of 6 months children should only receive breast milk.

Regarding the weight that does not increase, it could be because the child is too active so that the food that enters is immediately "burned" by their activity. However, in this regard, we advise you to re-evaluate whether the child is not under ideal weight, or is just not fat. Because children with ideal body weight, do not have to look fat. Therefore we recommend that you check with a pediatrician or nutritionist, as well as to evaluate the activity of the child which you think may be excessive. Here we attach an article about food for healthy fat babies. May be useful.
