Answer:

Hi Swapna!

 

Your son's diet schedule seems fine. Some suggestions here:
- You may include fruits for midmorning and as evening snack.
- Apart from milk, you may give him soy milk, paneer/ cheese, flavoured curd.
- You may even try a mixed nuts along with dried fruits as evening snack.
- Home made chirwa mix, paneer cubes with vegetables, nuts & dates balls could be other snack options.
 

Weight of your son is fine for his age.

 

Hope his helps.
