Adding Fat to Diet?

A friend of mine said the pediatrician told her to find ways to incorporate more fat into her 3 year old DD's diet. She went from the 20th percent to the 5th. Other than giving her pediasure shakes and adding butter to her toast....the pediatrician didn't have many ideas. I told her I'd post here in case you ladies had any ideas?

  • Peanut Butter?? That's the first thing I think of. It's got the fat and the protein.

  • Oatmeal, cheese tortillas with turkey, homemade things - pancakes, waffles, eggs and cheese things that are not processed or boxed but homemade is healthier and not filled with the things that will inhibit her growth
