Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Having smart children and eating a lot is the dream of most parents. Not infrequently, to achieve this, many mothers are tempted to give their children supplements. In fact, actually giving supplements to children, like drugs, should be consulted first by having the child examined directly to the doctor. Because each child's supplement needs are different.
The supplement you mentioned contains fish oil which is rich in DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), and arachidonic acid. When viewed at a glance from the womb alone, this supplement should be good for supporting the development of the brain and nervous system of children. Not only that, these ingredients are also good for maximizing the sensory system, increasing intelligence, mental stabilization, increasing endurance, reducing the risk of degenerative diseases, and also maintaining the health of the heart, bones and joints.
However, even though it has many benefits, as mentioned above, you should not give any supplements to children under 1 year of age without checking with a doctor first. Because, in some cases, improper supplementation has the potential to cause allergies, or other negative health effects.
As well as providing supplements, you can also do efforts to increase children's appetite in several natural ways, such as the following:
Do not force the child to eat, including by scolding him or giving him physical punishment
Vary the daily food menu so that children don't get bored
Adjust the taste of food to your child's favorite
Avoid using excess sugar, salt and flavorings before the child is 1 year old
Minimize instant feeding to children
Get children used to discipline when eating, namely by setting the same meal times every day, not getting children to eat while playing or walking around, and not giving gifts when children want to eat
Not giving excessive snacks outside of mealtimes
Continue to give the child enough breast milk until the age of 2 years
If the child still has problems with appetite and growth and development, don't delay to have it checked directly to a doctor or pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
