Tips For Feeding Sick Punta Gorda Kids

Though the Naples media is more focused on rampant Punta Gorda childhood obesity, there are some underweight children in Florida.

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

Understandably, Punta Gorda 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.

Punta Gorda children who undergo chemo treatment at Naples 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 Punta Gorda children.

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

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