Adding Calories to Your Toddler's Diet

March 7, 2005

Picky toddler refusing to eat.I need to boost the calorie intake of my toddler (per the pediatrician request). To me, she's just a typical toddler in the way she eats; not exceptionally picky, just toddler picky. She doesn't like cheese but I can get her to eat more with a dose of ketchup or peanut butter on stuff.

We're going to the nutritionist soon and I don't want to be told to just load her up on pediasure (I have a BIG problem with pushing calories on a child in the form of sweet stuff). She'll be 2 next week and is about the size and weight of a big one year old.

Any advice?

My Grandson is 2 & is small. Very picky but likes milk. We use Carnation Instant Breakfast (cheaper than Ensure etc & has no funky taste) to fortify his milk & add the calories & extra protein. He eats very little meat so the protein is a boost.
