We adopted Myra when she was a 6-month-old pallid-looking kid. The next four years were full of medicines and pediatrics. She is going to turn five in December this year and after a long time, we can see an improvement in her health. Along with medicines, I always used to feed her cereal, salads, fruits, and her BMI is now normal. Ultimately what they eat says a lot about their health, so while you see a doctor regularly, make sure your daughter eats enough calories. I am still not sure about asthma because the pediatrician we are seeing has never in any way warned us about it being a result of obesity or high BMI.
