    Default Fatty foods

    Hit me with some "good" fattening foods that I can feed DD 19months.

    Just had our 4 monthly paed appointment and she's not happy that we have crossed a percentile line again.

    I'm sorry you are still having issues.

    Any dairy needs to be full cream (I was tempted to feed DS unsweetened cream at some point).

    Avocado (they are currently cheaper which is good). I think use coconut oil as much as you can (if you can get a smoothie or something into her). Will she eat fish? You could try tuna. Anything nutty. If you can make or get almond butter. Or peanut/cashew butter.

    Bliss balls? I made lemon bliss balls with cashews/coconut oil once that was not that sweet but was yum.

    It's a tough one because high fat foods, although dense in energy, won't necessarily put the fat on (assuming that's what you're trying to do). But you don't want to load her up on sugar being so unhealthy... I think a combination of fat and carbohydrates should help. Homemade potato wedges cooked in coconut oil, bliss balls made with lots of nuts, seeds, dates and honey. Try different nut butters on bread/rolls with honey for sweetness and extra kjs.
    If she will drink smoothies you can hide all sorts of things in there - bananas, full fat yoghurt/coconut yoghurt, coconut oil, dates, nut butter, natural protein powder etc. add some cacao powder and it's just like a chocolate thick shake...

    I think with kids though it's sometimes easiest to find something they really love to eat and let them have heaps of it. If she is getting a wide variety of healthy food a bit of extra sugar won't hurt IMO.

    She loves nut butters and eats that regularly. She's gone off cheese and has always refused yoghurt.

    I'll try again with smoothies and will definitely try bliss balls. Any specific recipe?

    She won't eat fish or egg.

    I did buy some cacao powder yesterday actually. Was planning on using it to make lactation cookies/smoothies.

    https://wholefoodsimply.com/category...s/bliss-balls/

    I use this website for bliss balls. And other baking stuff.

    Would she eat fruit loaves/banana bread with her nut butter?

    It may pay to take her to see a paediatric dietician. I think you are in Brisbane? I used to take my DD to see one at The Mater. Although now we have the new children's hospital they may have moved.

    Tips I have had from dieticians include:

    Adding cream to food. eg mix cream with yoghurt, add cream and butter to mashed potato, add cream to soup etc.

    Same for olive oil and butter.

    Bake with double the amount of eggs. eg double egg pikelets and pancakes. Double egg muffins.

    Lots of milk on cereal

    Smother everything in nut butters.

    Avocado

    My DD wound up on polyjoule. It is a carbohydrate added to food for weight gain. No nutritrional value. Just extra calories.

    FWIW what fixed my DD in the end was getting on top of constipation issues.
