Few suggestions for height and weight gain are Use whole milk and its products like curd, paneer, cheese, buttermilk etc. Fruit yogurt made of full-fat milk, full-fat milk based puddings like rice kheer/fruit custard/vermicelli kheer/gajar halwa. Increase intake of dals/legumes( either mashed, in soup or as khichdi dal-roti mash, eggs (as nogs or in soups), scrambled egg with added milk/fresh malai, poultry/fish (cooked &minced or soup) Give more of fruits like mango, banana, cheeku,l itchi, grapes, dates. These may be added to their milkshakes as well. Fruit smoothie especially made of banana, honey and nuts Potato, sweet potato, colocassia, yam besides other vegetables. Boiled potato/ sweet potato with melted cheese & little butter, boiled potato with hummus dip, Nuts like walnuts, almonds, peanuts finely powdered. Sandwich with peanut butter. Well mashed dried fruits like raisins, dates, currants, apricots etc. Hope it helps
