When Kids don’t Eat

imageIs It a Behavioral Issue or an Appetite Problem ?

I had seen plenty of poor eaters in my practice, but this one had left me with no doubts that he was the worst amongst all. . With a history of bird’s appetite, this time he was breaking all records. It was nearly three days since he had taken a morsel. It looked as if he had taken recourse to some kind of Satyagraha. Any attempt to feed him forcefully would end up in a vomit. The young parents were nearly on the verge of a breakdown, when on the fourth day he ended his fast.


When kids don’t eat, why is it that they don’t eat? What makes them a poor eater?

The Eating disorders are complex disorders. It could be a simple behavioral disagreement to food or as some Research shows that its origins can have more than one reason – Biopsychosocial. A neurobiological brain disorder with a strong heritability component is also under investigation. Some individuals with eating disorders have an imbalance of certain chemicals in the brain that control hunger, appetite, and digestion. The exact meaning and implications of these imbalances remains under investigation. Behavioral disagreement occurs if the child is force-fed or over -fed.

When kids don’t eat, it can be very distressing for their parents, but is this disorder treatable?

Yes, but first it is important to understand the relationship between the child?s total family environment and his eating disorder. The individuality of each child is an important factor in assessing the most suitable approach for dealing with food refusal. It would simply be illustrated by a case that I treated without any medication. A child of two had developed a very obstinate food refusal. It was assessed that the disorder had no biological angle, but was a case of behavioral disagreement. The mother was feeding the child at an inappropriate time, seven thirty in the morning, as she had to leave for her job by eight, which had resulted in an overall refusal to food. A simple adjustment in the feeding time gave the desired results.

In another case a little one had developed disgust for food after her mother used harsh punishment for not finishing meals in time. Such a situations can become a psychological deterrent and the child may sub consciously develop a contempt for food.

Homoeopathic medicines are very helpful in treating eating disorders.. Antimonium Crudum, Lycopodium, Nux Vomica are a few of the important homoeopathic medicines. Antimonium crudum is very helpful for infants who vomit milk immediately after breast-feed. Some peculiar mind symptoms easily identify the child who requires this medicine along with a very weak appetite he is Cross and contradictive; whatever is done fails to give satisfaction. The little one is Sulky; does not wish to speak. Child cannot bear to be touched or looked and gets angry at every little attention.

Lycopodium has a very strange indication. Although the child may be very hungry, eating ever so little satiates him easily. Nux vomica is often an abused appetite stimulant. Nux should only be used only when it is indicated. It should not be used as an appetite panacea. Homoeopathic medicines should only be used with the advice of an expert homoeopath.

Eating disorder can result out of general ill health as in chronic disorders like asthma and recurrent coughs and colds, also at times a result of over or an improper medication. Such children need to be treated with a constitutional and holistic approach where the root cause is identified and remedied.

The child being referred as ?he? in the above feature is just a grammatical connotation. It does not favour any sex.

    • Hello Dr Sharma,

      I have a 30 month toddler boy and he started to eat baby food late, as he was always sick in first year. He refuses to eat himself or eat any solid food. All food has to be blended to smooth consistency. He eats home food or baby food bought from supermarket. He does not like food outside around his mouth and asks for me to clean it, while feeding him. He also won’t eat his food until he is distracted by playing with his iPad or some toys. He drinks fresh full cows milk in bottle sometimes early morning while still asleep, around 6am. I have seen a speech and language therapist and have been told to cut down his milk and give only a little in a beaker. I tried that and he won’t drink the milk in the beaker and so have to give it in a bottle. He has licked some fruit once and then second time would refuse it. He won’t even hold any finger food. 🙁

      He will be reviewed again in a 8weeks times. He has been referred for a speech and language check progress, as they feel he isnt taking much and using more words in a sentence. He uses more single words and sometimes 3 words but not in order that would make sense. I am really struggling and stressed with what will happen to him when he starts school, as he can’t continue to eat blended food puréed forever and be fed by me. I just want him to eat solid food and eat himself.
      By the way I am in the uk.

  38. Pooja Dipanker says:

    My son has ASD (5 year old) and still is non-verbal. He has severe eating disorder. He rarely eats any solid food and whenever eats, prefers a few crunchy foods only. Like, crunchy Dosa, muruku, chips, khakra etc. It’s been more than 2 years, he has eaten rice, chapati, dal, subji or any regular food. He mostly survives on protein based almond & cashew milk.
    He checks the texture of food and discard it if it’s not crunchy.
    I am in constant stress due to this unpredictable feeding demands. Request you to provide help and guidance.

      My grand daughter is 22 months old. She weighs about 11kg. She is very active. But the problem is that she does not like to eat any thing. We have tried giving her varied type of food but after taking 1-2 times she shuts her mouth. This behaviour is from birth. After BIRTH she hardly sucked mother’s breast.
      We feed her only when she is asleep.
      The other problem is she sleeps for 2 hours during mid day, then sleeps after midnight (mostly after 1.00AM) and gets up after 8 AM in next morning. This puts us into lot of problem. She becomes more active after 9.00PM.
      Please advice remedy for appetite loss and irregular sleeping habit?

  71. My name is Mrs Asim. Dr i have a son who is 28 months old and for me being a mother a hardest job is to feed him. He neither open his mouth for feeding nor feed himself
    Every meal time we all eat in a family he doesnt sit with us to eat a family food after that i offer him to eat he cries, gags and show stubbornness by not opening his mouth. I changed 3 pediatritions but no one could find out the problem. My husband is so unsupportive he always see me in the depression and chasing the kid to eat something but never helps. Always criticise. His logic is to keep him hungry he will b fine and i even tried that but at the end he drinks one bottle after a whole day hunger. Sometimes when i get over frustrated as no body is here to help me and i am dealing this issue alone then i scold and scream on that boy on every time vomiting. M tired to deal with all this from the last two years vomiting, cleaning, he is dropping his weight because of his stubbornness not to eat. I dont know how to deal this problem alone. Day by day my struggle is giving up….

I have tried many different ways like waiting till he is hungry, not switching on TV or mobile, begging him, making him understand the importance of nutrition and survival, time management, social importance, scolded, etc…, he says he is hungry, but takes more than an hour to eat or refuses with little rice and always complains of even very less spicy foods as spicy. He also says he dislikes spicy and likes only sweet or bland foods. Very adamant and gives back answer to parents if we insist or shout if we switch of the TV. Kindly help us to overcome this issue

  94. SUDHIR SAXENA says:

    My grand daughter is 18 months old and does not eat. her mother moves behind her for 2 hours to give her some roti/parantha. the little one will keep a bite in her mouth and will not chew it and will not gulp it for a very long time and so she cant finish even one small parantha in 2 hours. same with egg or rice or any other thing. As a result, she is slightly under weight. Otherwise she is quite active, healthy and very affectionate. Whenever she eats she is much more playful. She takes some milk at the time of sleeping only, not in the day. Please advise some medicine to increase her general appetite and health. Thanks

  140. Dear doc

    My daughter is 4.6 years old. She is very choosy in eating. She gets very frequent cold and cough.
    SheStarts crying for everything and even doesn’t like some one watching her when ever she is doing something.
    As she is not eating I scold or scare her and feed many times. Worry it can bring more impact on her food intake,
    She gets tired very quickly. Can’t even take out her cycle for a ride. Even when her twin brother is driving cycle she wants to sit at the back of him or just sit and watch him.

    But she says, she wants to do gymnastics, and really she was behind us to find a coach for her. We found one . From a month she is going for the coaching but she is not having the stamina and stiff mess to perform.
    How can I give her better food. Make her little strong and build stamina in her.
    Not knowing what to do.
    Plz need your advise

  144. Hello Doctor Sharma. My pediatrician informed me that my six year old daughter is 4kg underweight. She was a chubby baby up till starting solid foods, born at 50th percentile and increased up to 60th with breast milk only, but then slowly slipping in percentile till she went off the chart. She eats very little, even when she said she was hungry or even when she asked for that particular food. She likes most fruits, meat, dal, and pizzas and pastas without toppings, but doesnt eat in sufficient quantity. She wont eat any vegetables except cucumber and will eat a couple bites of carrot when pushed. She will not try new foods and becomes extremely upset when pushed to do so, to the point of gagging and occasionally vomits. She has a slight allergy with milk which causes stomach ache at time of pooping if not avoided, as well as decreased appetite. She also gets headaches few times a week, caused mostly by stress or heat I think. She is average height and intelligent. She is quite lazy, asking other family members to do things she should do for herself and cries when asked to do “too much” which is only a slight inconvenience. She is very weak obviously and she broke her colar bone when she fell off the bed last year. I try to give her vitamins but she sometimes sneaks them to her brother (who thinks they’re candy). She loves reading and swinging. Sorry for so much info, but I think it helps to get the right medicine. Please suggest me what to give her, we have many homeopathic remedies at home and can get anything necessary. Thank you very much!

  158. Chaitanya says:

    Hi Dr. Sharma, I’m mother of 16 months Twin girl babies. They are 9.7 kgs each (my pediatrician says it is good weight, and they will have problem with their food until 3 yrs) but i worried about their food intake.
    At times they eat whatever I feed them and at times they reject similar food next time (i don’t feed same food very next day – as they might get bored with same food).
    Also, if they like some food they take first 4 to 5 spoons very fast and interestingly and they do not want to eat further.
    After taking few suggestions, I have limited the amount of milk and number of times of feeding milk however i did not find any big change in their eating.
    They take their own time to take food inside stomach from mouth. They can keep food inside their mouth for 5-6 mins and either they take inside stomach or they spit. It will take me 1 hour to feed each baby.
    I’m really worried and loosing patience. Kindly advise, if Homeopathy can help me or is it common and nothing can be done until they are 3 yrs.

  162. Hi Dr. Sharma. I am Sirisha, mother of 16 month old boy. My son used to eat very good until he s one year. Now from paat 3 months he s not eating well. I am trying to force feed him but he s quarreling with me in his language n refusing. He will have some food first n he stops eating. I am trying to give liquids same thing happening. Please help me regarding this. Thank you

    • The knower says:

      STOP force feeding him; he’ll have some food and then stop because he feels full. You’re overriding those feelings by trying to force too much food into his tummy. Babies growth rate slows down after 1 year and their appetite declines with it so any forced intake will be vomited out and cause him to hate food.

      Do your child a favor and let him eat as much or little as he wants. Even better yet, give him finger food (you can roll rice and dhal into little balls) and let him feed himself!

  173. Observation: In the U.S, most non-Indian kids really enjoy eating and usually self feed before age 1! A lot will cry for food and then gulp it down and a common complaint from their parents is that they WANT to EAT too much and get very upset when NOT given food. Why are Desi kids so different? Is it genetic? Is there some kind of chemical in the Desi child’s brain that prevents them feeling hungry?

  222. 4 year old son, always has been a picky eater, won’t eat meat at all, occasional chicken nugget, give him vitamin cheweys, don’t over do.
    Recently had a bad cold, and lost his appetite and it’s been over a week and has never regained appetite.

    Has good energy though. Runs around like normal. Seems a little more sensitive to cold than usual.
    Long naps. Wakes up tired.
    He will eat bread, crackers and the pouches from store with fruit paste. Maybe a cookie.
    Used to eat pasta pretty well, now he gags on it.
    Environment is excellent. Nothing traumatic ever. Goes to pre-school. Teacher shared concerns about him not eating.
    Would like to know what homeopathics we should give him to get his appetite back. He has lost 3 pounds. 41 pounds down to 38 pounds. He is very tall for his age. Taller than all the other kids.
    Has always been very healthy, just picky eater, light eater. Now, not hardly eating.

  231. Hello Dr
    I’m a 22 year old mother of two girls. My oldest daughter will be 5 in a few months. Ever since she started to eat table food as a baby she’s been very picky and doesn’t eat much at all. When I noticed she wouldn’t eat much it was very stressful. I assumed she would grow out of it as she got older. I would talk to her doctor about it, seeing that she never got any higher than 3% on the growth chart for kids her age. And they would sort of shrug it off saying, “well she must take after you,” or, “well she’s just a kid mist kids are picky.” But I knew that she was just very skinny cause I mean she actually barley ever ate!! Well as the years passed my daughters eating habits have never changed. Sometimes its so bad that she would get sick, she would be tired, no energy. She would tell me, momma my belly hurts! And I knew she was hungry, but its like she couldn’t register the fact that she needed to eat to feel better, no matter how much I tried to explain to her. Well now that’s she grown older, and has gotten taller. I can see how skinny my baby really is!! It makes me cry, I’m sad to see her like this. I just wish she could enjoy food just as much as I do, or her baby sister. I just don’t know what to do anymore, I’m beginning to think there really might be something wrong with my baby.

  239. Hi Doctor,
    My daughter Anagha is now two and half years. She had a good health until two yesrs ( until I breastfed her). After that she is having recurrent colds and coughs. Especially cough that would last for months with a croup. And I somehow feel that her mucous gets aggreviated with the consumption of dairy products. She also has mild form of eczema on her back which gets a bit aggreviated when she has chocolates. She’s an active child and never stays idle.
    Last time she had this croupy cough, kali sulph gave her relief.
    But the croup has comd up again. Is there a permanent solution for her problem? As the cough is quite frequent.

    My son is 2.5 yrs old and weighs 10.2 kgs. His birth weight was 2.72 kgs. From birth he used to vomit breast fed milk most of the time, Doctor’s used to say it is because of reflex. He also used to vomit solid food when we started feeding him after 6 months. Now his vomiting has stopped but he doesn’t put on weight. He looks very weak. He passes motion twice or thrice in a day, which is also my concern. Otherwise he is a very active kid. Please suggest me some medicine to increase his appetite and put on weight.

    Hello Dr

    I have a 2.9 years old son whose digestion is very poor since the time he was born. There has to be a gap of 3 to 3 and half hours between each feed. He eats nothing before that. If tries to then vomits. His padec says as he grows up his vomiting and digestion shall improve which has not and become a worry n nuisance for me. He does chew his food at all. Every feed has to be puree form that is mixer grinded or else he will vomit anything solid goes in mouth. He does not sit and eat. Make him lie down on my lap n feed him. He gets afraid of eating anything that it will get choked up. He is in nursery n gets his tiffin as it is that is untouched. Sometimes eats 1 peppy that’s it. No fruit,biscuit,chocolate or ice cream , wafer. Nothing he eats just licks and throws it. Pls suggest medicine for improving his digestion. How to remove his fear of food getting choked up or vomiting shall occur. In the night also he sometimes gets up in his sleep and vomits for reason even after 2 or 2 and half hour of feed. I m really worried. I cannot travel with him for long journey since he does not eat anything chewing. Have to make him sleep on lap and feed .

  274. A perplexed mom says:

    American kids are pure GENIUSES when it comes to eating and asking for food; eating on their own before one year old and asking for food all the time and the opposite problem of Desi kids; they have tantrums when parents do NOT give them food. An American 9 month old happily grabs finger food and stuffs it in her mouth and then gestures for more with the face lighting up when they get. An American 18 month old self foods a bowl of cereal or mac and cheese with a spoon and they says “more, more, more” and gets upset if they are denied a second helping. An American 3 year old says, “MOMMY, I’m HUNGRY” and nags for more food even 30 minutes after eating.

    Is there some kind of neuro-chemical imbalance in Desi kids stopping them from enjoying food or causing them to feel pain upon eating? American parents are so lucky their kids love food so much!!!!

    • Yes, Indian kids are geniuses when it comes to their studies.
      American kids are geniuses when it comes to eating by themselves.

      Indian kids learn to read and do math when they are 3 but don’t learn to eat well by themselves until they are 12.

      American kids learn to eat well by themselves when they are 1 but don’t even start reading and doing math until they are 6 and never really get good at it.

That curd rice also we should feed her and it will take 1 hr for us to make her eat a small portion of that curd rice.She will never touch new varieties but she will eat egg puff but not egg. Veg roll but no veg curries.She will never try which is good to health. We are more concerned about her future now.She is lean and weak because of her food habits.She stopped eating dal at he age of 2 .for the last 4 yr she is eating only curd rice.
    Now she is in 1st standard.Daily she is coming home without eating that curd rice at least.If we force her to try any thing new she will start crying and she will never eat that. please suggest if there is any solution to change her eat.

    Hello Doctor,

    Would like to check if there is a way to increase appetite in my 88 year old grandmother. All tests have been done and nothing significant diagnosed except for general weakness. She has been on fluids for over a month now and has lost weight. Has developed disinterest in solid foods. Can you please advice if there is any appetite stimulant in Homeopathy that can treat even the elderly.

    Appreciate your help.

  330. Priyansha Bindal says:

    My daughter is going to complete two years this month. She has been a fussy eater ever since she was born. She was born at 37 weeks and her birth weight was 2200 gms. She used to vomit breast milk and refused to take any formula. Since, she used to vomit after almost every feed her weight got affected. I was asked to start with solids as early as when she was 4 months old but even with that it was the same. She vomited during every meal.

    But, the real problem has started now and i am seeming to giveup. I just delivered another baby a few days back. I have been giving more time and attention to my first one than what i was before the second one came. But, off late she is refusing to eat like she never did before. Its been almost a week and she is not eating even half of what she used to eat before. Since she is already low on weight i feel even more worried. Please help..

  341. I am a U.S raised Indian working at a day care center in California with children from 14-24 months old. Non-Desi children LOVE to eat for the most part and will actually run to the tables in excitement when we announce the words snack time and lunch time. They can all self feed finger food by one year old and most can work a spoon quite well by 18 months. Yes, it’s a mess; about one third of the food ends in in their mouth, one third on the floor, and one third on their face but the end result is the enjoy eating and we clean up after them. Meal and snack time is the calmest part of the day as the children sit at the tables and gulp down their food in excitement. We do NOT force them to finish and accept the fact that some will finish all their food while others will finish one item and reject another item while others will eat a few mouthfuls of each item. But everyone eats something and every kid loves meal time because we let them have control over their food.

    Indian parents force their kids to eat even if the kid says he’s full; this causes physical pain and makes the kid vomit resulting in food aversion. It saddens me when I go to a Desi party and see children have the totally opposite reaction to their food saying their not hungry, crying, and taking minutes to chew and gulp one mouthful that is handfed by parents. Non-Desi kids self feed completely by age 18 months and a common complaint among non-Desi parents is that the kids wake up at 6AM demanding breakfast. I believe Desi kids hate food because they associate food with force and pain as the parents make them eat. Non-Desi kids view eating as a pleasant sensory experience of picking up food and putting it into their tummies to satisfy their appetites.

  352. Hi Doc,

    I am a mother of 20 month baby and having the same problem. He is having another peculiar habit of vomiting when he sees the food is being served or is fed with 1 or 2 spoons which thus led us to go for an endoscopy for GERD check based his pediatric suggestion. After the report came out that scenario also ruled out.
    Medically he has no challenges but he is not interested in food. My problem is not only he eats less but also his throwing up. Please guide me.

    Thanks in advance,

With warm regards


  354. babygill says:

    Dear Dr,
    my 18 month old daughter is the most troublesome toddler ive ever seen. There’s nothing she will ever eat willingly. This has been the case ever since. Even her milk intake as an infant was very meagre. She is under weight n weighs only 9 kgs at 18 months. She is very active n runs n plsys, however as soon as she sees food, she starts to cry. Meal times are the most horrid experience for us all cause we have to literally hold her face n push the spoon into her mouth. Thtat too she spits it out. Be it cereals or anything edible, food is her worst enemy

    please enlighten me on how to deal with her or what needs to be done
    thank you

    Namaskar Dr. sir, Well my problem is that my grand son of 9months old is taking milk[lactogen2] but not opening his mouth to take solid food[liquidified].He vomits immediately after taking any fruit juice even. This is first introduction of solid food home made or cerelac2,etc. Under this situation my daughter and son -in-law are much worried for this reason. Will you pl. Doctor suggest some measures? Thank you

  362. Hi,

    We have always struggled with our 15 month old son. When he was a few months old he was diagnosed with reflux. After we introduced solids things were going better but worsened when we introduced gluten. We found out he has gluten intolerance and we adjusted his diet accordingly. Now he eats very very little each day, I can tell he is not hungry most of the time, he doesn’t have a psychological problem. When he is hungry, he eats, but that happens very rarely. So he is now surviving mostly on milk. He drinks water constantly, so his thirst is fine. His appetite not. Waht can we do to improve his appetite. I must say he also has poor weight gain.

  382. Dr. Sharma,

    I have a 7 month old who has had difficulty feeding since birth. She only drinks 60 ml every 3-3.5 hours, sometimes taking only 40 ml. On a good feeding, she will have 90 ml but this is unusal. She’s a very happy baby otherwise, sleeps well, and is active. No developmental problems. Has had multiple tests done, all normal. Birth was normal and full term. Had problems with latching while breastfeeding and would always fall asleep at breast so has been on formula (bottle) feeding since 1 month of age. Have tried many different formulas without any change in appetite. Please let me know any suggestions or other questions you may have. Thanks for your help!

  386. Dear Dr. Sharma,

    My daughter is 28 months old and was an IUGR baby (2.1 kg) She has been on her curve, but is still small–now probably 10 kgs. Her appetite is ok, though not like some toddlers who love to eat. I have seen iugr babies picking up within the first 2 years and equalling up to kids their age, but she has not shown that trend.
    More than her being chubbier (she has fair amt of chub on her body), I would like to see an increase in her bone structure. She tends to look mousy, even though she is average heighted.

    Kindly suggest what can be done and ask further questions if need be.
    Much grateful

  392. Surya Prakash says:

    Hello Dr. Sharma,

    I have a kid of age 21 months. Though he is hungry, he is not taking any kind of solid foods. He is now under weight, lean and weak. We tried to keep him wait for few hours to see if he show some interest on rice items. But he is not. As the time passes he will start crying and wants to have milk/water only. We tried different options in liquids also like Pediasure, Junior Horlicks etc, but he shown no interest. We tried different allopathy medicine but they didn’t help him.

    Can you please suggest a homeo medicine for him to increase the appetite so that he can start taking solid foods as well.

    -Surya Prakash.

  394. I found you website by fluke while searching for help for my 5 year old grandson.
    I’m not sure if the website is still current and if you are still practising, but it’s worth a try.

    My name is Mineke and my grandson has just been with me over the holidays. He’s been diagnosed as very lightly Aspergers, and what is most important is that he has huge sensory issues.
    The family lives Auckland New Zealand and we live an hours drive away. My daughter Janita has been part of a University study, where 6 different specialists studied a group of young kids with eating disorders.
    Basically, my daughter was advised that there is nothing ‘they’ can do, except maybe find help from a sensory specialist. “Keep going what you are doing and good luck.”
    Janita was advised to give Fletcher (her son) teddybears with vitamins in the morning and rub in several healthy creams in his skin at night. At least he will get some good in his body.

    Fletcher does not eat. No vegetables, no fruit, no meat. No potato’s, rice, bread etc etc.
    The only thing he drinks is COLD water.
    The only thing he eats is dry rice crackers for breakfast (reluctantly) and about 5 or 6.
    There is one particular gluten free chocolate cake he eats, and it has to be freshly cut up (sugar). And one particular brand of Eta chips and they also have to be fresh and crispy (salt).
    At night he will eat maybe 6 pieces of fries, have to be certain crisp to it, can’t be soft, can’t be brown . . . .
    SIGH . . . .
    He simply gags if he eats anything else.

    He’s got some sensory issues, with the slightest grain of sand in his sock and he’ll scream, but he will walk on bare feet on rocks.
    He doesn’t mind having wet hands, but is very careful, he can’t touch any ‘sticky’ like I was making a peanut butter cone for the birds and he didn’t want to stick his fingers in it. He said, “I don’t like ‘sticky’. Or I was making paper/flour/water mixture and he didn’t want to stir it with his fingers. Or making mince balls. He dislikes the stickiness.

    Once I tricked him and put some healthy essence through cold water, just a little bit, but it made him gag and he doesn’t want to drink from that bottle ever again.

    I have also realised that CHANGE make things worse. Going to day-care, or now, going to school. The little he eats, becomes even more of a battle.

    My daughter works as well and also had another 3 year girl, so she is exhausted and it’s heart breaking to watch. He’s got so much potential, he’s a lovely little man, with a huge sense of humour. Surprisingly, he has a lot of energy. He has a warm little heart and always wants to look after his little sister. He gives us ((grandma and grandpa) big hugs, so he’s not distanced with emotions. It’s only the touch/feel/sensory issues.

    Do you think there is a homeopathic medicine for this very deep rooted problem? What is your advice?I want to ask you first, before I go to my daughter and talk about it, she already has so much on her plate.

    Many thanks and I look forward hearing from you.

  396. Doctor Sharma, I have a 22 month old girl (who was an IUGR) and has had problems with sufficient weight gain She dislikes food, or even if she does eat, it probably is around 2 spoons. I would like to know what can be given for weight and appetite stimulation.

      thanks a lot

  397. My daughter has very bad ‘food resistance.’ Extremely sensitive to smell, tastes and textures. She eats the same thing for breakfast and lunch every day. Offers of other foods aren’t met with anger and we don’t push or punish because it is so obvious that this is mostly neurological (experts agree) . Dinner is one of two options. There can be not the slightest variation on the preparation of the foods and this makes us prisoners to our home at mealtimes. Snacks are crunchy and salty. No fruit, occasionally will pick at veggies at dinner. She is being treated homeopathically with Carc and Sulphur is emerging, and remedies for Azith and Bartonella nosode (she was born with tick diseases. Any advice on remedy would be appreciated.

  398. Hi Doctor,
    I have a same situation at home.
    My son is 5 years old and from past around 3 years he is only taking 1 chapati
    i mean to say i in lunch and i in dinner and that also he dont finishes up
    In breakfast if we give him 1 bread slice that also he dont finishes up.
    Otherwise he is very active he runs whole day and seems normal never complained of fatigue.

    He never asks for food very rare he says iam hungry.
    Please suggest some homoepathy medicine.

    Thanks in anticipation

    • Kalpana Chauhan says:

      Dear Dr. Sharma,

      Very good morning to you. This morning has brought a hope in me while searching remedies for low appetite for a kid. As I go through your site, feeling to get fix this problem soon. My daughter is 5 yr 2 mths old. Though there used to be a random refusals in past it has become now frequent and regular. Since she has recently started going for formal school with extended time and education burden, my resuming job has added to the cause. I am not able to judge whats the reason that her food volume has decreased almost 1/6th when compared to earlier. Its concerning since from a month and a half, she insists not to eat and doesn’t demand any variety at all. Her attitude has become very reactive and erratic which is leading depression in me.
      Kindly help if supplements can help boost her hunger and bring her attitude subtle. Her sleep is also decreased a lot.

      Best regards,
