September 8, 2006, Newsletter Issue #96: Toddler Appetite

Tip of the Week

Some doctors may feel that nursing will interfere with a childīs appetite for other foods. However, there has been no documentation that nursing children are more likely than weaned children to refuse supplementary foods. In fact, most researchers in Third World countries recommend continued nursing for even the severely malnourished. Most suggest helping the malnourished older nursing child, not by weaning, but by supplementing the motherīs diet to improve the nutritional quality of her milk and by offering the child more varied and more palatable foods to improve his or her appetite.
