"Healthy growth is about gain in both weight and height as per the established standards" - Experts, child Health and Nutrition.
Mothers often fuss over their kids not eating properly and 'junk' often replacing the healthy food. They have a valid concern as complete nutrition is required for wholesome growth and development of children.
Health in children is measured by experts in height and weight gain parameters. Sometimes a child falls behind these universally agreed upon standards due to their insufficient dietary intake of nutrients. Usually a lot of junk in diet, less of proteins and other nutrients and sometimes frequent sickness is responsible for children lagging in height and weight milestones.

THE PRODUCT TO #CatchUpOnGrowth
Horlicks Growth Plus
- the newest health drink from the stable of GSK Consumer Healthcare is a product scientifically designed by Schnieder Medical Institute's Department of Endocrinology, Israel
. It is strongly backed by clinical trials
proven to enhance growth visibly in 6 months in undernourished children who are lagging in height and weight gain milestones as per the growth charts.
The formula of Horlicks Growth Plus is rich in high quality protein
. It contains growth amino acids, Vitamins D, A and C, and minerals like calcium, iron and zinc to enhance growth of children between the age group 6-9 years. Each 2 servings of Horlicks Growth+ (Vanilla variant) contains 19.4 grams of high quality whey protein
Experts say children need 1.2 times more protein than adults
for proper growth, and 80 per cent of it is used for growth and development. Inadequate protein intake may lead to below average growth in children. Horlicks Growth+ naturally enhances growth.
"2 servings a day of Horlicks Growth+ contain as much protein as 1¼ cup of cheese, the same Vitamin C as 2 medium sized lemons, calcium equal to ⅔ of a cup of milk, as much phosphorus as in 2 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds, an equal amount of iron to 2 bowls of spinach, as much zinc as in ½ a cup of cow peas, and the same Vitamin A as in 2 medium sized carrots So while children are catching up on growth, they are also getting important vitamins and minerals."
