Do you have a kiddo that needs a little help in the growth department? Perhaps you’re pregnant and are struggling to gain weight yourself, or maybe you’re breastfeeding and are losing weight very quickly. We all have unique nutritional needs!  


Sometimes we need to add Calorie Boosters to foods to help each bite count. One simple strategy we use with our clients is adding a layer of fat/oil underneath other toppings on toast, pancakes, waffles, rice cakes, sweet potato spears, etc. It helps each and every bite count a little bit more. 

How do you know if your child needs this? Talk to your doc first! Are they worried about your kiddo’s growth? Can their growth trajectory be explained by genetic/environmental factors? If your doc’s not worried, keep doing what you’re doing! On the other hand, if your provider has expressed concern in your child’s growth it may help to try these strategies.


How can I modify these for allergies? Use sunflower seed butter or tahini instead peanut/tree nut butter. Try the Kite Hill Foods cream cheese spread with coconut oil or avocado oil underneath for the third toast option.

This is just one of the many techniques we’ve outlined in the Calorie Boosters handout in both our Infant and Toddler & Kid Courses! It includes so many unique ideas and has allergen-friendly options. We also have included some tasty recipes! (If you already purchased either course you have access to this handout! Head to Step 9 in the Infant Course and 11 in the Toddler & Kid Course!)

We also added an entire handout for constipation in both courses

Our courses are live, meaning that you’ll always have the most updated version (and they don’t expire – as long as we’re hosting them!). Go back and watch them again and again.
