    Default Weight gain for 10yo without dairy

    Would he go for a homemade smoothie?

    You could make one in the mornings in lieu of breakfast to sustain him, and make them non/dairy with some almond milk or coconut milk, with some oats, protein powder, fruits, berries etc.

    Since he eats yoghurt, maybe getting some chopped fresh fruit, oats, nuts etc as a breakky or lunch time meal.

    My brother was the same and still is and he's now in his 30's, he wouldn't touch dairy and was very thin, he ended up needing pentavite as his iron was on the low side (I know..nothing to do with lack of dairy) but it explained a bit of skinniness so to speak.

    No slamming here the kids and I love eating Semolina porridge with cream, smudge of butter and sugar for breakfast, yum!

    .
    If course it's relevant. The reasons why someone is skinny impact whether there should be a concern, as well as the suggestions (if any) which may be suitable for the individual.

    Depending on the reasons:
    - people may be wasting their time giving you advice
    - you may be wasting your time asking for advice
    - advice given *could* be harmful for your child.
    - focusing on weight and diet could lead to body image issues.

    If you aren't able to say what medical advice has already been sought and what medical guidelines have already been provided then I would encourage people to not offer suggestions.

    My eldest has the opposite problem, she gains weight really easy. So I'm going to list foods she loves
    - creamed rice
    - custard (I don't use powder j do it with eggs and milk/cream in my sisters thermomix)
    - dips
    - my smoothies I makes with blueberries, bananas, strawberries, mango, passionfruit, raspberries, and apples. I put in a few spoonfuls of ice cream and a bit of milk, but you can't tell when it's all mixed up that there's even dairy in there
    - toast and porridge
    - cheese
    - sucky yoghurts
    - heaps of fruit
    - almonds and macadamia nuts
    - what about a toasted sandwich for breakfast?

    I am lazy now and make it in my thermal cooler so follow one of those recipes.

    But this is similar to what I do when using a saucepan

    My DD1 loves it, DD2 is indifferent. I love to mix it with some tinned apricots.

    He is a skinny healthy 10yo boy with no medical issues. If you don't want to offer suggestions then that's fine but please don't go around telling others not to - I came for advice like every other hubber does. I have given answers and explained that he is being teased for being skinny. I'm not wasting anyone's time or I wouldn't have bothered to ask - yes maybe I'm wasting my own but at 40 I'll make that decision for myself.

    Why are you so against mentioning what medical advice you have already received?

    I stand by what I said. If you don't provide context as to what medical advice you have already sought and received then people are wasting their time giving suggestions and the focus on weight *could* damage your child's body image.

    Doctors and nutritionists are trained to help people like your son do what they need to do in a healthy way. Most people on Bub Hub aren't.

    I think it's pretty clear the OP is just trying to help her son, who is experiencing some difficulties with body image already due to being teased because of his weight.

    She's not asking for a strict diet plan from others. She's probably seen doctors and dietitians who have probably said exactly what all doctors and dietitians say about the weight of kids who are skinny but otherwise healthy; don't worry about it, he'll be fine. And physically he will be. But I don't think concern about his physical health is what has inspired this post. What I see is a Mum who just wants to help her kid with what is clearly a distressing facet of his life right now.

    A little compassion wouldn't go astray.

    I like the idea of crossfit OP - any kinda weight should bulk up a bit. For protein, maybe try and find a protein powder that does not have too many additives. I have had a look into pea protein - it might be ok? (Pea protein is marketed as vegan protein).
