Tips For Feeding Sick Las Vegas Kids

Tips For Feeding Sick Las Vegas Kids

Though the Henderson media is more focused on rampant Las Vegas childhood obesity, there are some underweight children in Nevada.

When Henderson kids refuse to eat, it is a challenge for Henderson parents to make sure they get proper nutrition.

Understandably, Las Vegas kids that usually eat normally often lose their appetite when they are sick. Kids who don’t eat much during a two-day bout with the flu will probably have no health issues from the temporary reduction in nutrition.

Las Vegas children who undergo chemo treatment at Henderson hospitals, however, are at greater risk for malnutrition. Ironically, this is the time when adequate calories, vitamins, and minerals are needed the most for ill Las Vegas children.

Here are some suggestions for helping Henderson kids with poor appetites receive adequate nutrition:

Don’t let your Las Vegas child fill up on beverages before meals, serve liquids between meals
Offer small meals throughout the day
Always have healthy snacks available like protein bars, fruit, and cheese
Alter food temperature to see if it makes the food more appealing to your Henderson child
Try smoothies and soups if your sick Las Vegas child has a hard time swallowing
If your child is turned off by intense smells or flavors, try bland foods with little seasoning

I want every Las Vegas child to receive excellent nutrition and the best healthcare available in Nevada. I am excited about a new Henderson children’s nutrition product and would love to tell you about it. Call me today for more information.
