I just printed this, thank you thank you! I am in the same boat. My 7 yo is very picky eating and the pediatrician is concerned with his low weight on the medication. I just ordered him a bento lunch box in which he can open one thing and all his food is in front of him, no effort to unwrap or look in seperate packages. I filled it with high protein/ calorie snacks. His favorites and fruit and veggies which is great, but does not pack on the pounds.
Bananas, kiwis, yogurt mixed with evaporated milk and fruit on top to entice him to eat it, and I’ve been using the pediasure or boost nutritional drinks. I try to give him one 2 to 3 times a day, which is full of vitamins minerals and calories. good luck! hope more people comment on this – always looking for new ideas!!
