use whole milk and its products like curd, paneer, cheese, buttermilk etc. You may give these as fruit shakes/ fruit lassi. Paneer/cheese can be added to their roti/sandwich/dosa/uttapam/pasta etc. Increase intake of dals/legumes, eggs (hard boiled/ omlette /fried etc. ) poultry/fish (curry, snacks, cutlets, tikka, rice or soup). Give more of fruits like mango, banana, cheeku,litchi, grapes, dates. These may be added to their milkshakes as well. Give more of potato, sweet potato, colocassia, yam besides other vegetables. Nuts like walnuts, almonds, peanuts and dried fruits like raisins, currants, dried apricot. Calorie rich snacks ideas are Pasta with cheese, egg/potato/cheese parantha made with a little ghee, cheese balls, cheese & paneer sandwich. Fruit smoothie especially made of banana, honey and nuts, fruit yogurt made of full-fat milk, full-fat milk based puddings like rice kheer/fruit custard/vermicelli Trail mix with nuts, seeds, dried fruit, honey.
