The sedentarism imposed by COVID-19 restrictions has reduced (a lot) my nine-year-old's physical activity. That explains, to me, why his appetite has been reduced a lot over the last few months.
However, he also has been growing in height pretty quickly. OK, this seems good, it seems he's getting enough food to grow.
But he's not gaining weight. He weighs the same now as 4 months ago, though he has gained more than 2 inches.
He's only hungry once a day, we provide 3 meals but he protests being made to come sit down when he's not hungry. And usually only takes a very small number of bites before he's done.
Is that a normal growth spurt pattern for this age - getting taller but not heavier, and not being hungry?
