Based on his weight / age, he should be consuming approximately 2400 calories per day as recommended the following; Fruits = 2 cups; Vegetables 3 cups; Grains (cereals, breads) = 8oz equivalents; Meat & beans = 6.5oz equivalents; Dairy products (milk, yogurt) = 3 cups; Oils = 7 tsp; Additional calories to be used discretionary = 365. This food needs to be divided up between 3 meals and snacks between meals daily. Protein is in all foods except fruits (very minimal amounts) and fat. Higher concentrations are in meats and dairy products. Hoped this helped you.
