Few suggestions for your son's diet are If he has small appetite give him small, frequent meals. Apart from main meals, give him snacks in between. Try and include following foods in his daily diet like paneer/cheese, eggs, fish/chicken, whole milk, potatoes, banana, nuts & seeds, dried fruits. Hope it helps.
