friends, need solutions. my cousin's son is now in LKG, whenever he is alone, he is eating paper. If her mom or any of us saw he pretends to act. how do we get him to stop eating paper?

Hi sakthi

Well paper in itself is not bad it is the ink that could be poisonous, he could also choke on it if it gets stuck in his throat. If he has swallowed a little this time round he should just pass it in his next motion

And it is sounds like some form of pica which is a craving for non-edible things.
Take him to a pediatrician to see if he is deficient in some kind of vitamin or mineral to cause him to want to eat paper

hi sakthi,
its usual that the kids will eat chalk and paper.to avoid that give foods contains more iron in it.. if this habit continues he will get anemia.. loose motion as well and the ink will spoil the kids apetite..

Hi Sakthi,

dates, raisins (ular thiratchai), all leafy vegetables(keerai) and grains like corn,ragi, bajra(kambu i think)..and mutton liver, egg,fish and chicken...these are high iron rich foods.

Sakthi, //He is not eating veggies and non veg items preethi.// every mom have this complaint on their kids...
we usually fine chop the veggies and make friend rice so that the veggie will go in...for leafy veggies soup is the best option(in my place). you can try that....you can also try boiling veggies like carrot,beetroot,broccoli and give it to them, let them pick and eat....but make sure some elder should keep an eye on them.

non-veg we don't make separate for kids, we usually serve from our curry only. initially we started with leg pieces which was easy for them to hold and eat...of course for infants mash it and you feed them up.

ovvorutharukkum ovvoru mathiri experience. silar ethanai vayasu varai NV koduka koodathunu solluvanga..enga vetla 7th month la irunthae fish slowly start panniduvom....normally sea foods are allergic...so you have to be cautious and much attentive to check for symptoms.
