My 4 year old has food allergies along with extreme pickiness. He is currently getting very little nutrition and almost no protein. He will drink smoothies or "milkshakes" from Pediasure-type products, but I haven't been able to find one that is free of dairy and soy. Is there something I am missing?

Any other ideas for sneaking in protein in smoothies or shakes?

Can he do coconut milk? Turtle Mountain makes a yummy coconut milk beverage, or you could use straight canned coconut milk. Or hemp milk, also yummy and very nutritious. Both would be great bases for a smoothie. There are high quality liquid/powder vitamins and minerals you can get that could add to smoothies. As for protein sources, what can he eat (i.e. what are his allergies besides dairy/soy, and what foods will he willingly consume), and maybe we can help you brainstorm things to try.
