Eating extra calories helps with weight gain and proper growth and development. Some babies/toddlers are busy and do not take time to eat. Others are not hungry because of low appetite or if they are receiving certain medical treatments.
The care team has recommended that your baby/toddler needs extra calories for a specific reason. Eating too many calories regularly can lead to extra weight gain or obesity. Follow the care team’s recommendations for eating extra calories until it is no longer needed.
