Answer: Full-fat Dairy Foods
Choose a brand of yogurt that is made with whole milk. Many supermarkets carry yogurt specifically for babies that contains more fat and calories
Foods made with whole wheat. Make pancakes with whole wheat flour or offer toast made with whole wheat bread. Whole grain pasta cut into tiny pieces is another high-calorie food to feed your little one. Hot cereal, such as oatmeal, is another nutritious option. Prepare these cereals with whole milk instead of water to boost calories even more.
