Thanks to both of you. Yesterday I had him eat a lot when he first came home. He struggled to eat it all, but it was all healthy. Of course, he was still full come dinner, but he managed. He's never been a kid who would eat a lot at any one meal, so getting enough into him has been hard. Plus, he's rather anti-veggie and fruit, he only like a couple of things and getting enough of those has always been a challenge.
Both of you came up with ideas that triggered some thought on my part.
I came up with smoothies, made with whole milk, yogurt and fruit. Then I threw in a peanut butter sandwich, a salad, a hard boiled egg and 1/2 a banana. I'm going to look into the protein shakes and see what they have in them so that he doesn't eat anything that's on the prohibited list.
The spaghetti dinner is an excellent idea, it's one of his favorites. We did that during wrestling season because he had already weighed in for the meet and could pig out a little.
The smoothie works for my daughter, too. Although her's I make with skim milk. She's very weight conscious, so I'm trying to instill in her that she looks great and if she eats healthy she'll stay that way.
