From your measurements, his weight is in the 50th percentile, as his doctor stated, which indicates he is normal for his age. He must be eating enough food to maintain his weight within normal levels. Try engaging him in the kitchen more. Have him help you with planning and preparation of food, and setting the table. Hopefully this will increase his interest in eating different foods. He likes yogurt so make yogurt smoothies with fruit - yogurt, banana or strawberries (or any type fruit), frozen fruit blended together which has extra calories and protein. Since his selection of foods are limited, suggest giving him a children’s chewable daily multi-vitamin. Thank you for your question.
