Tips For Feeding Sick Delta Kids

Though the Vancouver media is more focused on rampant Delta childhood obesity, there are some underweight children in BC.

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

Understandably, Delta 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.

Delta children who undergo chemo treatment at Vancouver 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 Delta children.

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

Don’t let your Delta 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 Vancouver child
Try smoothies and soups if your sick Delta 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 Delta child to receive excellent nutrition and the best healthcare available in BC. I am excited about a new Vancouver children’s nutrition product and would love to tell you about it. Call me today for more information.
