Goeie middag. My seun is 10 jaar oud en sy lengte is 1,20. Al sy ander maats is kop en skouer bo hom, sy boetie van 8 is amper by hom. Is daar enige iets wat ek in sy dieet kan verander, of enige iets wat ons vir hom kan gee, om bietjie vinniger te groei, hy is baie negatief oor sy lengte.

Hallo Beverley
Kry hom eers by 'n pediater - daar is dalk 'n onderliggende rede soos skildklier probleem of asma of iets wat sy groei beinvloed. Sommige kinders begin eers later in hulle tienderjare rek. Sorg dat hy genoeg proteien en n goeie multivitamien daagliks inneem - stoot ook sy kalsium inname op.
