my daughter is 9yrs and weights only 50lbs ( most 5 yr olds weight that much) and she is not gaining any weight, She is on concerta (27mg) and she is doing so great on the meds. with the exception of the weight she is losing or just going back to what she was before the meds. I have tried to give a bedtime snack, we have breakfast before school and she seems to eat her lunch. I am looking for ideas to help her gain or at least stop losing, She does have kidney problems prone to UTI's and I dont really want to give her ensure type drinks as they may be hard on her kidneys.
