Underweight kid

My daughter is 3 yrs now and weighs only 10 kg. Looks very very lean. Height is also on the lower side. But is very active, talks a lot and got very good immunity. Does not get affected by cold, fever etc easily. But her lean nature is a persistent cause of worry for me. She is very very fussy with eating. What I have observed is that her hunger is very less. Birth weight was 2.5 kg. I just started giving Alfalfa paediatric tonic 3 times. Can you please suggest on this? Can any child be so under weight inspite of giving all kind of good foods? Can there be any kind of absorption problems?Please advice

In my opinion, she is doing fine.

You should not worry about lean body structure, all will be fine with time.

I also do not like your choice of giving Alfa Alfa tonic to your little girl.

The reasons behind her being lean can be very complex. Sometimes child born after a miscarriage/abortion are lean and thin. Does you have any abortion or miscarriage before your daughter?

My baby likes talking a lot,playing with other kids,shy and does not mingle with with strangers fast, sometimes eating junk like noodles , understand things very fast etc.
Also Please explain me why I should not give alfalfa tonic.Her appetite is very very poor, and she doesnt show any interest in eating, without forcing. I never had any abortion/miscarriage before her birth.She is my second baby.Her brother is 2.5 yrs elder to her.Can you tell me what can be the reasons for her slow growth.

Take such doses once a week.
Only for three weeks. just three doses

Please check her wt before starting the medicine.

The reason behind advising to stop alfa alfa tonic is that I had seen some bad effect from a branded alfa alfa tonic in my personal experience so I do not advise any patent products GENERALLY.

Her poor appetite is a big concern and you should find out the causes of it.

Regarding her slow growth, she may be anemic or protein deficient or calcium deficient or may be suffering with mal-absorption.

You should try medicine advised by Dr. Yogesh meanwhile.
