Most parents worry about their child’s diet. Often doctors are asked – Is my child eating too much/too little ? It is often hard to gauge how much your child is eating in a typical day. The simplest way to know is to find out if they are growing normally. Parents of babies, especially newbie first baby parents, usually follow their baby’s weight well at least for the first year of life. In the UK parents are given a red book with height and weight charts included.
