How to gain weight?

My daughter is very thin – stick thin. Thoughts on what I can give her to fatten her up? I know part of this is probably genetic as I was very thin too. But I’d like her to have some meat on her bones – I’m concerned she could get roughed up playing in sports. Preferably something healthy, that would put some weight on the kid

When I was younger I had to be put on a protein diet to gain weight. It works well enough, and they have enough methods of getting good protein into you now that she won’t have to resort to drinking egg milkshakes.

Did you ask your doctor?

Our doctor sent us to a specialist for the boy, since he wasn’t as tall as he should be (5-10% of average). They put him on a high-protein diet. (Basically, they said to ALWAYS offer him protein, and offer it first.) Last time they measured, he was up to the 35% range or so….

Athletes eat a lot of carbohydrates – pasta, rice, beans, lentils, bread etc.
and of course protein.

I suppose its worth noting that her body may just refuse to gain weight. That happened with my brother, he is and has always been very skiny. When he was a kid that worried my parents (specially because he also was a bit amnesic) and so they, under the recommendation of a doctor, put him on a high-protein diet and even went as far as to let him eat as much sweets as he wanted (he loves sweets) for a month but despite that he gained no weight whatsoever. In adulthood he also tried to gain weight again with protein supplements but… once again, no results =)

I wouldn’t have her put on fat, but rather muscle. Encourage her to do some weight bearing exercises. Put the emphasis on strength gain not poundage.
