Question

UNDERWEIGHT TEENAGER

My son is 17yrs old, approx. 1.65m tall and weighs 47kg. He will not try new things! Eats no veggies (only potatoes) or fruit. I give him Sportron Foodstate MultiVitamins and their Omega 3 and 6 oils daily.
Sportron has a shake and I''''ve also looked at Ensure plus. I need advice please. What can I give him to gain weight?

Hi Ronel,

I would strongly suggest you take your son to see a Dietician who can look at possible food combinations that will help him gain weight. Your GP should be able to recommend a Dietician for him to see. He may also benefit from a medical from your GP as part of this process.
