This phenomenon can often take place at the end of the first year of life, and then, as they grow older. In some cases, the child may have bad for psychological reasons. If the cause of the deterioration of appetite was the disease should consult a doctor as to what should be a portion of the child. In some cases (for example, tuberculosis, malnutrition) children really need to eat a lot. At the same time, with acute respiratory infections, on the other hand, great importance is the amount of fluid you drink, but a child may not want to.
Once the child begins to eat with a spoon, parents need to be patient. Report this tactic – to try as quickly as possible to feed him. The kid should have a good chew food.
