At the age of 3, children may insist on eating the food you make them to eat, but will choose one of the foods you offer them as they want to be independent.

After the stage of weaning, children start eating more foods, complete their abilities in motion and better their abilities in using languages. This is the time children go to the kindergarten to enter a new stage of their life. The big step needs monitoring and taking care of in order to help babies to develop in the best way.

Children who are 3 years old have to experience many changes. 90-93cm is the good height for children at the third year. After then, they will get 0.5-1cm taller. By the time children are 4 years old, they should be 1m tall according to the standard height.

3-year-old children weight about 14-14.5 kg. At the time, children are slow in weight gaining, about 100-200g a month. If children don’t gain weight successively in the next 2-3 months, you need to take them to the nutrition specialists to have further counseling. On the other hand, if children gain more than 500g each month and keep on doing that in later successive months, you should consider the risk of obesity. By the time children are 4 years old, they have gained 2 kg, which makes them weigh around 16-16.5kg.

Being on the stage, children are taken out more often than they were in the kindergarten. Children start getting used to the outside environment full of infectious factors; therefore, they often have fevers, snivel, productive cough, diarrhea…. Since children in this age often get infected with diseases, the risk of malnutrition is still waiting for its shot on your babies when they have anorexia, don’t make up for the nutrients lost after the recovery from a disease or when the disease dries out their energies and nutrients they absorbed.

This is the time children try to prove themselves, and see what they can and cannot do… You will witness your children become independent, stubborn in imitating and taking part of most of adult’s activities. They will become restive if you force them into eating food they don’t want to eat even though their reasons for that are quite reasonless. Children simply do that because they want to do just the opposite of what you ask them to do, want to see your reactions for that and to attract more attentions, not mentioning the case they have younger siblings who take all the attention.

Obese children at the age have higher changes of fast weight gaining as they now they can decide to eat their favorite foods which could be greasy meat, fried foods, cakes, coca cola… or ask their moms to make them those foods, or go to the fridge and take food themselves… They can also spend the whole day just sitting at one spot to play toys or watch cartoons.

Their eating is much similar to adults’ now as they can join with other family members in the 3 main meals. You just need to provide them with 4 groups of foods in every main meal. Additionally, children still need at least 3 rations of milk, 200ml milk each, to develop height at their best; need providing with protein, vitamins and minerals to support their activities. 

If children have slow weight gaining, you can let them eat energy-rich foods, fatty foods, sweets or add 1-2 spoons of cooking oil (soy bean oil, refined sesame oil) in children’s foods. Let them drink fresh milk or whole milk.

If children have fast increase in weight, you should take notice of the foods you stored in the fridge, avoid storing much of chocolate, confectioneries, cokes… Reduce greasy, sweet foods and increase the amount of vegetables, tubers, fruits. Maintain providing children with milk to support height development. Obese children had better drink skim and non-sugar milk.

Description: Children who sleep at 9-9h30pm have better increases in height than ones who sleep at 11-12hpm.

Allow children to choose foods with your guide. Children may insist on eating the food you make them to eat, but will choose one of the foods you offer them as they want to be independent. You should be friends with your children and understand them; don’t force them. One important note is children who sleep at 9-9h30pm have better increases in height than ones who sleep at 11-12hpm. 

If in a meal, children don’t like the food or finish their rations, so don’t force them to eat more, but make it up by provide children with cookies, fruits or half a glass of milk. It’s easier and children still receive the nutrients they need. 

One thing you should notice about is each child’s ration of foods should include the 4 food groups: 2-3 spoons of minced protein foods (meat, fish, shrimps, eggs, tofu, liver, pig brain….), 2 spoons of minced leafy vegetables or tubers (water spinach, spinach, pumpkin, carrot…), 1-2 spoons of cooking oil.
