My grandson is 10 years old. He is full blown ADHD, takes medication for it, prescribed by a very good pediatric doctor. He has no appetite while on the meds. he only weighs 60 lbs and needs to put on weight. What foods will boost his weight and still be nutritious?
From your measurements his weight is between the 25th and 10th percentile for his age. He is within normal range for his age. If you want him to gain weight, suggest giving him milkshakes, already made or made by you (milk, ice cream & fruit, if accepted) at meals. This will provide extra protein and calories for weight gain. Hoped this helped you.
