This week’s plan focuses on weight gain, a definite concern for all moms, whether their baby is 6 months old or 6 years!
Leave the worry behind and enjoy the meal plan, mommies!
Here’s some advice from Deepti:
Weight gain is one of the important indicators of growth in babies. However, there are many instances when babies do not gain sufficient weight. The most common reason is because they do not eat enough food to meet their needs.
A few other reasons include:
- Your child is experiencing a growth spurt and her energy needs are high
- S/he doesn’t have an appetite or she says no to food
- S/he only eats a few types of food (she is a picky eater)
- S/he eats too slowly
- S/he is easily distracted or loses interest in eating quickly
- S/he has an illness
Developing healthy eating habits takes time but it definitely pays in the end!
