I doubt it could be caused by anything that he is eating. I would ask your pediatrician about this. I have heard of teenagers getting grair hair prematurely but not toddlers. It may just be a fluke and maybe you won't find any more white hairs.

Re: White hair in toddler of Indian origin

My dd had a period when she was around 2 when she doesn't want to eat anything, my father made a big deal of it, he was saying that my cooking is not any good and asked her to be fed at daycare. Now when she is around 4 things are changed (touch wood), she likes to eat most of the time.
May be it is just a phase.

...I'd say it's no concern... it's just a lack of pigment in that hair follicle....I don't know that anything causes it, it just happens sometimes....or can be hereditary!

...My husband started getting gray hairs regularly since he was 12 years old...

Re: White hair in toddler of Indian origin

Hi Sujatha,
My son is also 5 years old and i saw 1 gray hair few months back. I'm also not sure what to do with it. I'm thinking that i should just ask his pediatrician. If you or anyone else come up with a solution then please do post it. Thanks!
