If he likes Periasure, try making your own protein shakes and pack in the calories. I use to make my kids milkshakes for breakfast with: protein powder, whole milk, full fat ice cream, peanut butter, and banana. I believe you can add powdered milk for even more calories.

The trick is protein and calories. A variety isn’t worth forcing, you just have to find what he can tolerate that gives him these high needs.
