The Cause Of Children Difficult To Eat And How To Overcome Them?
Good night. I have a younger sibling, grade 5 elementary school, he has difficulty eating and likes to pick the food he wants to eat, so his meal takes the fastest hour. these past few days, every night he vomited. he has absolutely no appetite and is always looking for reasons not to eat, starting from the reason of being sleepy, full, want to urinate, want to defecate etc. so we always force him to eat. when it was late at night also his strength seemed to be exhausted, he was weak even difficult to stand up. why is he like that? before, thanks for the answer. .
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Previously you should explain first, how to eat your sister at other times (during the morning and afternoon)? How is your sister's condition at other times, does your sister always look weak like she is hard to stand? Are there other symptoms that accompany?
Do not want to eat in children can be caused by various possible causes, for example, children eat too many snacks before dinner (so the child is already too full at dinner), children do not like food that is made, children do not like the atmosphere of dinner (for example because there is a problem with the family that causes the child to not gather with other family members), or the child is indeed sick so that he has decreased appetite.
Because your sister is in grade 5, of course, your younger sibling can be more talkable. You can try to get your sister to talk about the reasons for not wanting to eat dinner and see further whether your sister's general condition always seems weak, or only looks weak when told to eat dinner. If you see your brother's condition is always weak, your brother can really not stand up, there are other symptoms that look disturbing like your sister has a fever, shortness of breath, your sister looks pale, weight loss, etc., you should recommend people your parents to take your sister to the pediatrician for further evaluation.
Suggest your parents ask your younger sibling before dinner if there is any particular food your younger sibling wants to eat. Try to make dinner that your sister really likes and monitor whether your younger brother can eat well or not.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
