Does anyone have suggestions for high calorie food/snacks for a 10 month old? He's allergic to dairy/eggs/peanuts. I know avocado is high in calories and nutritious, but it's hard to find nice ones where I live. And I'm at a loss for what else to try. He's not crazy about meat, will only eat a few mouthfulls even when mixed with other things. He really like fruits and some veggies, as well as home made bread/muffins. He's still nursing so I'm giving him all of the calories that he'll take from me.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

One suggestion - the cereal Turboz. I forget which company it is but Tony the tiger is on it. It is highly fortified. I give it to my little guy since he is a fussy eater and we do not have much dairy in the house because of my daughter. It could be a finger food for your baby. It's not high calorie though but one serving is considered a meal replacement.

At that age, we had to add oil to the soy milk. Soy milk is equal to 2% milk and it s not recommended for children under 2 years of age because they require the extra fat for brain development and for the absorption of fat soluble vitamins. We had to add 7 teaspoons per day-that sounds like a lot.

Can you get referred to a dietitian?

Keep nursing, he'll be getting a lot that way.
