Help a Toddler Gain some Needed Weight

Diane | Jun 8, 2006 02:45 PM

Any advice for nutrient dense foods for a 20-month old who is losing weight, due to JRA (she is unable to chew anything too hard/crisp and has trouble opening her mouth wide). We have offered smoothies, avocado (mashed with cream cheese as a dip for wheat pita or vegetables), and have added milk puddings and custards with egg. Any ideas are most appreciated, keeping in mind her taste for seasonings is limited. But she really loved the crab bisque, so go figure!
