High in calorie recipes

I know this might sound weird but I need some recipes that will fatten my daughter up. The traditionalist wants her a a diet of a little over 1000 calories a day and I am finding it hard to make food to meet that requirement. So if anyone knows what I can add to normal food or recipes that might be higher in fat I would appreciate it. :)

I'd say if you up the Protein intake too that you can put on pounds. But I am having the same issue with my 10 year old son and my 22 month old daughter... It might just be a very High metabolism.. I would talk to your Pediatrician.. or ask a nutritionist or dietician!

Adding cheese and nuts wherever you can. Some doctors will recommend ice cream, but I would opt for full-fat yogourts (you can get up to 8 per cent) before a daily ice cream run. Using butter in stead of margarine adds calories, but you don't want to go overboard with the saturated fat.

Dessert made with real fruit also works well. and they get an extra serving of fruit.

Our pediatrician told us to give my son a milkshake before bed. We decided to go with peanutbutter and banana becuase it had lots of calories. We just make the milkshake and add pb and banana into the blender. pb and chocolate works well also.

Add butter to vegetables, try yogurt, use formula with baby cereals instead of water, and add butter to any other foods you cook. Good luck!

Try this: Good and not too good for ya...LOL. This is the only way my little boy will eat meatloaf and me as well. A friend of mine made it with ground turkey and turkey bacon....she said it was good.

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf (Paula Deen)

1 pound ground chuck

10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (I use a small package of the Real Bacon Bits)

1 (8-ounce) package sharp Cheddar, grated

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1/4 cup bread crumbs, toasted

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/3 cup ketchup

2 tablespoons prepared mustard

1 (3-ounce) can French fried onions


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck and next 8 ingredients, mixing well.

In a small bowl, combine the ketchup and mustard. Stir 1/4 cup ketchup mixture into meat mixture, reserving remaining ketchup mixture.

Press meat mixture into a 9 by 5 by 3-inch loaf pan, or shape into a loaf and place on a rack in a broiler pan. Spread remaining ketchup mixture over loaf. Bake 40 minutes. Top with French fried onions; bake another 10 to 15 minutes, or until meat is no longer pink.
