Sometimes a child looks fit from outside and become tough to understand that the child lacks behind proper  nutrition . But there are few signs with which you can identify them as given bellow

Delayed Speech: Delayed speech is related to deficiency of B12. Foods high in B12 are chicken, meat, fish, shellfish,  diary and eggs. But before giving supplements of B12 it is necessary to be tested for deficiency .
