Being a parent is difficult. Well I don't know but that's what my parents keep telling me.
What really bothers them the most about their kids is their health and nutrition. But every kid ain't that privileged who would start developing from a young age. Some are though given proper food may not develop at a good rate and some may just be nutrients deprived for many reasons. Catching up on lost growth ain't easy but is necessary for a healthy future.
There are two stages to keep a check on growth; first check your child's growth regularly, visit doctor and second catch up on growth, if so needed.
Catch Up Growth
Catch up growth is nothing but compensatory growth or compensatory gain which means accelerated growth of an organism following a period of slowed development, mainly due to nutrient deprivation.
Specialist says that the inadequate growth or loss in growth at an early age can be due to reasons viz. fussy eating, illness, lack of growth hormone / hormone imbalance, etc.
Growth which is lost during childhood needs special attention and adequate nutrition to catch up.
What can be done?
When shown to doctors, they considering the situation and the age of the child prescribe medicines / supplements. There is a tasty version too.
