It has been over 3 months since we came back from Melbourne. Joy-Anne is still not eating. She takes about 25-30oz of milk a day. Occasionally, depending on her mood, she eats insignificant amounts of egg, cheese, biscuits, junk food (like mamee), keropok and whatever else we have on the table.
Lately, a few people have commented that Joy-Anne looks a little chubby. I'm tickled by the thought that she appears chubby when she doesn't quite eat. Yet she's bigger, taller and heavier than kids older than her who eat a lot!
Some people ask me what milk she takes. It's no secret - DutchLady123, which is one of the cheapest around. I buy in bulk during sales (RM16.99 per 1.1kg pack. Normal price is about RM25 per pack).
But I guess I shouldn't give all the credit to Dutch Lady for Joy's thriving size.
So here's the secret.... the kids have been taking food supplements from Frontier. Joy-Anne takes one packet of TN-Plus everyday. It's complete nutrition in a packet. We add half a pack into her milk, twice a day.
Joseph also consumes an array of products. They love Multi-V and Nuclex (added with some Ribena).

At 19 months plus, Joy is 84cm tall. If we were to bring her to a certain Japanese buffet restaurant downtown, we'll have to pay RM10++ for her because she is over 80cm in height. Imagine paying RM10++ for her to eat nothing!
And according to some book I read.....Joy is going to be really tall. Taking a very conservative assumption that she grows only 1cm between now and her 2nd birthday, she will be 85cm at 2 years old. Double that and you get her adult height of 170cm!
