    Default High calorie recipes

    The doctor has told us today that my son needs to start having high calorie foods after his operation last week. Just wondering if anyone has some high calorie recipes they could share? He is 14 months but we have recently been told to restart with purée due to issues with his esophagus so anything that can be puree'd would be excellent.

    Avocado, bananas, coconut milk. You can blend all 3 together and put in ice block trays too add some raw honey or dates to sweeten.

    Calories are often easier to drink than eat: Sustagen milk shake w full cream milk and ICE CREAM.
    Plenty of calories in that!

    Yeah and loads of sugar your baby boy doesn't need too!! The thing is if there are dietary 'problems' as such and his immune system is low sugar will suppress a new and young immune system that needs nourishing foods not sugar and additive laden ones. Avocado is easy to blend with a banana some flax seeds that have been pre ground with some coconut oil, coconut meat and if you make a nut milk it's even fattier but GOOD fats

    Thanks shinebrite, I offer him all the right sort of foods, he now has mashed veggies with a little butter and instead of eating meals that I make for myself and partner I cook him up plain meat and some pasta/rice I just feel like its boring having the same thing day in and day out so looking for other ideas to introduce. I tried scrambled eggs with cheese today but he looked at me like it was poison I will be getting some coconut oil tomorrow and will look for the flax seed. After speaking to a nutritionist today she wants us to offer most of the same things we were before except empty carbs in hope that he will be hungrier without them and eat more nourishing foods
