what all your family is eating, in a form suitable for his age. Try and include all foods in his daily diet, that is cereals, pulses, milk & products, vegetables, fruits etc. Few suggestions for weight gain would be- Use full cream milk. Give suji/ dalia/ sabudana/ chirwa porridge. Give khichdi/ upma/ dal chawal with vegetables & extra butter/ ghee added to it. If he eats chapatti/rice, give him with vegetables & dal. If non-vegetarian habits, include egg/chicken/fish in his daily diet. Give banana, mango, cheeku, ripe peaches. Do give him starchy vegetables like potato, sweet potato along with other vegetables (especially green leafy vegetable). Give these as subzi/curry/soup/add to his staples. Add powdered nuts & seeds to his meals. Hope it helps.
