Poor Weight Gain

At Grosvenor Gardens Healthcare, located in the prestigious areas of Belgravia and Dulwich, London, we specialise in diagnosing and managing poor weight gain in children. Our clinics are equipped with the latest medical technology and staffed by experienced paediatricians who provide comprehensive care tailored to each child’s needs.

Our Paediatric Services for Poor Weight Gain

Poor weight gain in children can be a sign of various underlying health issues, ranging from nutritional deficiencies to chronic medical conditions. Our paediatric team offers a thorough assessment to identify the root causes of poor weight gain and develops personalised care plans to address them effectively.

When there are concerns about faltering growth:

• Encouraging relaxed and enjoyable feeding and mealtimes
• Eating together as a family or with other children
• Encouraging young children to feed themselves
• Allowing young children to be ‘messy’ with their food
• Making sure feeds and mealtimes are not too brief or too long
• Setting reasonable boundaries for mealtime behaviour while avoiding punitive approaches
• Avoiding coercive feeding
• Establishing regular eating schedules (for example 3 meals and 2 snacks in a day).
