I need a calorie booster for my little girl.

 

It needs to be dairy free. I prefer that it be soy free.

 

Does anyone have any recommendations?

 

We cannot use PediaSure because of the dairy. I do not want to use a soy based product.

 

I am scared to buy a 12 pack of something off of amazon and have her hate it because they are so expensive-

so I was wondering if anyone had a real life personal suggestion/experience.

 

Thank you so much!

Rebecca

When we bumped into similar issues, we were told to drizzle olive oil onto everything and to feed her a ton of avocados (provided there is no latex allergy).

Does it need to be liquid?  Otherwise, I'd look at cookie recipes that contain almond meal- I have a good one if you need one.

It does not need to be liquid!!

I would love the recipe.

The problem is, she gets full easily so it is hard getting her to eat enough!

I will drizzle olive oil!

In a medium bowl, whisk together:
1.75c gluten free or regular flower
3/4c plus 2tbsp almond meal/flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda

In large bowl, mix together:
1.25c sugar
8 tbsp melted butter, still warm
3oz cream cheese
1 large egg
1 tbsp vanilla

Add dry to wet and mix well. Then put dough into fridge until stiff enough to scoop out in 2 tbsp balls. Roll in sugar, then bake at 350 for 8-12 minutes.

From the Americas Test Kitchen gluten free cookbook.

Try using some Duocal or Benecalorie.  Those added to foods that my son was already eating, as well as a prescription for Periactin to stimulate his appetite, were the most effective for us.  Using a drink supplement like Pediasure only filled him up and kept him from eating foods.  It was almost like a meal replacement for him instead of addition to.
