(HealthDay News) -- If your kids are underweight, it doesn't mean you should fill them with junk food to put on extra pounds.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends:
- Serving guacamole made with fresh avocados, tomato and onions. Or add avocados to a sweet fruit smoothie made with nut butters, seeds, fruit and full-fat yogurt.
- Making trail mix or granola with dried fruit, chocolate chips, nuts, seeds and full-fat yogurt.
- Creating a dip made with beans or hummus from chickpeas.
Don't let your child fill up on drinks before mealtime, so the child will be hungry enough to eat nutritious food.
