Other than the visits during an illness, it is also important to schedule well-child care exams regularly, beginning from infancy. Routine examinations provide the bests opportunity for the doctor to observe the progress of your child’s physical and mental growth and development, counsel and teach parents, detect problems through screening tests, provide immunizations and get to know one another. Well-care visits are strongly recommended as part of preventative pediatric care. Well-child visits are also a good time for parents to raise questions and concerns about a child’s development, behavior, nutrition, safety and overall well-being.

If a child consumes a balanced diet, no need to add supplements. But in most children, this is not possible and they may require additional supplements. In infants since their growth is very rapid, you will have to supplement with vitamin D. On an individual basis, you may discuss with your pediatrician whether the child requires supplements like iron, vitamin A, iodine, or zinc.
