When my son (who is now 14) was in Year 1, he took part in a national height and weight survey. This survey, as you can probably guess, weighed my son, and then measured his height, and then placed him in a category based on which percentile of the graph he appeared in. The results were worrying. My son was tall for his age, one of the tallest in his class, and this placed him in the top percentile. But he struggled to put on any weight, and so was very skinny, almost bordering on tiny in his build, and this placed him in the lowest percentile, and with a cause for concern, something that caused me no end of worry as a parent. He ate well and didn’t skip meals, but he had been born 7 weeks prematurely, and had struggled to maintain weight as a body. All this led to concern, and further monitoring of his weight, and, as a parent, I just didn’t know what to do to address this issue.
There are many reasons why our child might be underweight. Being born prematurely, as my son was, is just one of them. There can be health reasons related to issues with Thyroid and metabolic issues, or pancreatic problems and gastrointestinal disorders. Some children can have a naturally low BMI due to physical characteristics that run in their family, and can therefore eat healthily and yet not put on weight. Some children are just naturally very active and do a lot of physical activity, which can mean they very quickly born off any calories they take in. And, some children are just very picky and finicky when it comes to their food choices. Fussy eaters who have a limited diet may not be taking in enough calories, and may not have a varied enough diet to achieve all the calories and nutrients that are needed in a balanced diet to help them to grow at an healthy rate. For these children, help may be needed in order to help them grow and stay healthy.
NuBest Tall Growth Protein Powder
One way that you can add extra protein and nutrients to your child’s diet is by using a protein powder that has been specifically designed with children in mind. A great one is the NuBest Tall Growth Protein Powder in the form of a Chocolate Shake, aimed at children from age 2+. This is described as delivering:-
an excellent source of protein, Omega 3-6-9, probiotics, plus vitamins D3 & K2, perfect for picky eaters, lean children, and active kids and teens.
This is a very easy to use protein powder that is cleverly disguised as something that all children love – a yummy chocolate milkshake. It is packed full of goodness and wholesome nutrition, with the ingredients including whey protein, 1 billion CFU probiotics, Omega 3-6-9, vitamins A, B, C, and E, plant-based Calcium, plus vitamin K2 and vitamin D3, Magnesium, Zinc, and amino acids.
How do I add this to my child’s diet?
One of the most brilliant things about this Tall Growth Protein Powder is the ease of use. It is very easy to add this to your child’s diet and daily routine as you simply need one scoop of this daily, and it can be taken at any time of the day. You can add this to most drinks by just mixing it well, these include milk, yogurt and smoothies, so this could be added to a breakfast drink to start the day, or added to milk as part of a packed lunch for school days. This will be something that very quickly becomes an established part of the daily routine – a treat even, as who doesn’t love chocolate milkshakes!
Will my child like this?
Another brilliant feature of this product, and one that ultimately makes this child friendly, is the delicious chocolate flavour. One of the issues with many ‘picky eaters’ is that they don’t like the flavour of things like vegetables, which are actually good for them. Disguising this powder in the form of chocolate flavour totally marks this as something a little bit naughty, and therefore totally on a child’s radar. Add in the fact that the sugar content is low, and all of the ingredients are natural, gluten-free, and non-GMO, and we have a product that is doing so much good, but doing it secretly, allowing your child to enjoy it freely.
What will this do for my child?
We know that adding the right nutrients to our child’s diet can speed up children’s growth and development, so id your child is a little on the small side, is a picky eater, or is extremely active in a way that is making them too skinny, then this nutritional boost can help with a whole host of body issues. These include height increase, bone growth, energy, healthy digestion, eye health, brain functions, immunity, and overall body development.
