His weight is just below the 5th percentile line and his height is just below the 10th percentile for his age. The height and weight are in the growth chart; however, the weight is on the bottom. Maybe the following will help you to know the amounts of food he needs daily to gain weight. Guideline for a 9-12 month old child should eat the following: Breast-milk or Formula (6-8oz) 3-5 feedings a day, Dairy 1 serving a day – cheese (1/2 oz) or yogurt (1/2 cup). Starch 2 feedings a day – Infant Cereal (2-4 Tbsp), bread (1/2 slice), crackers (2), or pasta (3-4 Tbsp). Fruits or Vegetables 1-2 feedings a day – (3-4 Tbsp). Meat 2 feedings a day – 3-4 Tbsp) or beans (1/4 cup). Hoped this helped you.

It is recommending 2 feeding a day of a starch which can be the infant cereal, bread, crackers, or pasta. At one of the feedings which maybe infant cereal, you can give him 2-4 Tablespoons depending on the amount your child will consume. Remember there are other foods in the meal, not just cereal.
