Surely, your child’s growth figures on the top of your priority list. You may be providing him/her with a healthy and nutritious diet, and ensuring he/she gets proper exercise. But what if your child is still not growing as well as he/she should be?
Sometimes, just the diet isn’t enough to fulfil your child’s increasing nutritional needs. According to paediatricians, 3-9 years of age is the most critical growth phase2 – if your child’s growth falls short of expectations within this period, it will become a matter of great concern for you. The good news is, you can help your child catch up on lost growth by including health food drinks to his/her daily diet.
A tried and tested way to track your child’s growth is measuring his/her height, weight and checking whether both are proportionate. To ascertain healthy growth, you can look at using tools like the Horlicks Growth+ calculator.

The result also gives a percentile, in terms of growth, which your child falls in.
