Tips for Diet to Gain Weight
Hi All, I’m new here. My 6 year old son was diagnosed with ADHD a year and a half ago, and we started him on methylphenidate several months ago, and it seems to be helping. We just switched him to the time-release version since he started 1st grade yesterday.
I’m looking for some suggestions on getting him to eat. His weight dipped a bit at his last checkup and his doc suggested a milkshake with whole milk afterschool along with a big breakfast. Unfortunately, he’s not a milkshake fan! He does however, LOVE fruit smoothies, but I’m not sure what to add to boost his calorie intake. Any suggestions?
Thanks so much!
