Appeton Weight Gain (Junior)

Appeton Weight Gain (Junior), is a high protein formula which is clinically proven to help the skinny children gain weight healthily.


Why are some children underweight?

There are many reasons why children are underweight or didn’t gain weight following with the healthy growth chart. Most children are skinny due to poor appetite or due to hyperactivity, deficiency of vitamins and minerals, illness, depression, long-term medication. Children can also have poor eating habits when he or she is distracted by more “fun” things like outdoor activities, computer games and television programs. These distractions often cause children to eat less or even skip meals completely.  

Among adolescents, image might be another possible cause of poor eating habits. Influences from the TV commercial, image of “slim is beauty”, cultural, public talk, trendy and etc pressure girls and even guys to stay slim. In serious cases, they become obsessed with losing weight and run the risk of becoming anorexic.

An underweight child is likely to be a malnourished child. Research shows that malnutrition causes impaired physical and mental development, stunted growth and a weak immune system. It also reveals that a child with infantile malnutrition may suffer attention-deficit disorder, poor memory and concentration, and might continue to do so even after receiving sufficient nutrition in later years. Underweight children are prone to infectious illness such as diarrhea and pneumonia.

Adolescents who in a peak growing stage are also encouraged not losing weight, since it interferes with their health, growth and mental development. Underweight girls also run the risk of facing complications during pregnancy when they grow up.

An essential supplement of vitamins and minerals, specific amount of amino acids in specific combination and sufficient amount of calories from carbohydrate and fat are needed to gain weight.
