The weight & height are normal for his age. However, here are few suggestions for your son's diet-
You start introducing top feed gradually in your son's diet as he is nearing one year of age.
Use full cream milk in recipes till the child is 2 years
You can use blanched almonds daily along with other nuts also powdered well.
Give some fruit/ juice in mid morning.
Include green leafy and other vegetables too.
You can start other cereals like Dalia, bajra, ragi etc.
You can even start with egg yolk and then whole eggs.
Hope it helps!
