Parents can tell children about Ramadan fasting gradually. He is, by training children to abstain from solid dining first.
The matter was revealed by pediatrician consultant metabolic nutrition doctor Cut Nurul Hafifah.
“Let them always drink water to stay away from lack of solution, especially when the weather is hot,” said the doctor who practiced at Pondok Indah-Pondok Bagus Hospital, Jakarta in a press release obtained by Health Liputan6. com.
For the duration of abstinence, begin to teach the child to fast by gradually. Parents can invite children to do it for 6 hours in advance such as from getting up in the morning until 12.00 WIB.
