A baby brings immense joy in a family. When you have a baby, you take care of his every little need and prioritise his happiness over everything else. We know you take care of your little one in the best way possible, but to ensure that your toddler grows up properly and meets his milestones in time, you should keep note of his height and weight. Genetic factors, environment, nationality, ethnicity, age, race, gender are some factors that decide the height and weight of a child, but not completely. However, you can take note of these factors and monitor your child’s height and weight to identify any health problems. This would help you in ensuring optimum nutrition for your child.

How to Help Your Child Maintain a Healthy Weight and Height
To ensure that your child is growing properly and is gaining weight, you can always use the height and weight calculator. This would give you an idea of the average weight and height of a toddler. Keep a tab of the weight of toddler in kgs or lbs and the average height of toddler in cms or inch for later considerations. Record your child’s height and weight every month so that your paediatrician gets an idea of your child’s growth pattern. He will be able to find out your child’s body mass index (BMI). This would assist him in deciding what is best for your toddler. Here are some ways you can maintain a healthy weight and height of your child:
- Breastfeed your child at least until he turns a year old.
- Once he turns six months old, you can start giving him healthy foods like fruits and vegetables in pureed form.
- Indulge your child in physical activities. Play with him; exercise with him, or take him for a stroll in a park.
- Allow your toddler to eat until he’s full but don’t force him to eat.
- Limit screen time for your toddler.
You want the best for your toddler, don’t you? So, keep a track of his height and weight. If his growth and development take place in the right manner, he will stay healthy and happy. And by tracking his height and weight, you will also be able to ensure that he gets the right amount of nutrition!
