Children (5 to 6 years): 3.5 ml 3 times a daily Children (7 to 15 years): 5 ml 3 times a daily
Drug: Apevitin BC
3.5 to 5 ml 3 times a daily

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate the effectiveness of Apevitin BC in appetite stimulation compared to vitamin complex. [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Clinical evaluation of the patient's general condition. The lowest responsible will report less data about their inappetence.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate the tolerability of Apevitin BC in stimulating the appetite compared to vitamin complex [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    The lowest responsible will repost less data about their inappetence.Final evaluation of efficacy and tolerability.
