    Default Quick question


    Sorry if this is off topic, Does anyone have any food ideas that will help my
    7 yr old put some weight on hes about 47 inches tall and weighs 41 lbs, his
    doctor has said not dangerously under weight just on the small side, he is on a
    medication ADHD, it has a side effect of appetite suppressant, He eats when
    told to, we want him to gain about 5-8 lbs to help bulk up, any suggestions? I
    heard avacados are a good idea that is healthy, but how do you make it, or
    prepare it in a good form, I don't want him to gain weight unhealthylike
    cupcakes and junk, since adhd already causes hyperactivity and those health
    drinks like ensure and Boost have corn syrup in them he CANNOT have that at
    all, basically what foods wull help him gain weight????

    Thanks
    Tammy

    Hi Tammy,
    I have the other problem where my one child is only 9 and is almost
    5' tall and weighs 135 lbs. We don't feed our kids junk (hardly ever)
    but I think that healthy fats like peanut butter and banana grilled
    sandwiches ( yup that's right, by the way these were Elvis P's
    favorite) Just like grilled cheese but with peanut butter and banana
    slices or mashed. Avacados are great in a sandwich with cream cheese,
    sprouts and some nice seasoning.
    Eggs, cheeses, and meats are good sources of fats too. Just take your
    time and don't expect him to gain quickly.
    Good luck
