Hi.. My son is 14months old. He looks very thin and he is weighing 10kg at present. His birth weight was 3. 5kg. Iam worried about his weight. Could you please suggest foods that can increase his weight? And also can i give him cheese if so, which one?

I hope you are well. His weight is fine and if he is lean, then there's nothing to worry about :) Lean children are healthy most of the time. Yes, you can give him 1 tsp of cheese spread/cheddar cheese once a week. Here's a diet. Breakfast- 1 cup milk + 1 mini sandwich/2 small chilla/1 Bowl veggie oats/1 Beetroot or carrot paratha Mid-morning- 1 Fruit + 1 Tsp peanut butter Lunch- 1 Roti with sabzi or Dal chawal , khichdi and kadhi , Fried rice ,vegetable pulao/biryani Snack- 1 Fruit/1 Glass milkshake/Paneer Tikki/home-made bread pizza Dinner- Same as lunch OR 1 Dosa/uttapam/2 idlis/pasta with veggies/wheat noodles with veggies/vegetable daliya
