DD just is not gaining weight too well. I am not super worried about it. Her Dr isn't either but did say I need to push fatty foods. We eat really, really healthy and my 16 m/o would choose green veggies over any other food including sweets. She loves veggies so much she cries for more once she's finished them on the plate. So her diet contains mostly veggies. She is still BFing and it's like 6-12x a day. I am very sure most of her fat comes from BM. I also have been eating very healthy and am trying to loose some weight. IDK if I need to eat a certain amount of fat per day for her. I eat 1600-1900 calories a day. My fat is usually around 70grams.
She isn't too big on meat, but does love eggs. She will eat some carbs like potatoes.
We are dairy free.
We use the so delicious coconut products instead of dairy and we use earths balance for butter. We use extra virgin olive oil a lot and canola for cooking.
She won't eat avacado, which is the only healthy at thing I can come up with besides the olive oil and coconut stuff. Has anyone every tried baking with avacado (maybe as an egg replacement?) I have been trying to sneak it into dinner and stuff but she just won't eat it.
So what healthy fattening foods can I get my toddler to eat?
