This isn't a debate, but I'm asking here because this is where I spend most of my time! And I saw on the taboo parenting thread that some of you mentioned that your kids were on high calorie diets.
My youngest is going to be 17 months in a few days and is still under 20 lbs. He's been on the low end of the charts since 8 months, but now he's completely fallen off them. He's gaining weight extremely slowly. I'm not super-concerned because he is still healthy, happy, and developing appropriately, but I'm thinking there has to come a point where that little weight gain becomes a concern. We're going in for his 18 month check-up - early - next week, but I thought I'd ask, for those of you who have your kids on high calorie diets, what do you feed them? Any tips on fattening him up a bit, without feeding him a steady diet of Oreos, which I know he'd love, would be great!
