An egg a day, usually for breakfast. Scrambled with butter and a spoonful of Brewers yeast mixed in. Some days she says "enough!" eggs can get a little gaggy eating them so often.
I often bribe her with some applesauce (which hides her morning supplement - capsule opened and powdered contents mixed in).
Another good way to sneak in the egg protein is to hard boil eggs and remove just the yolk to mix in. Yogurt works well for this I find. I buy organic plain yogurt and also mix in a little pure maple syrup. I usually take the opportunity to mix the evening supplement into her yogurt.
Good protein foods are Cottage cheese, and also Peanut Butter. It seems that a favorite of Carolina's is peanut butter with honey, brewers yeast, and a large dollop of coconut oil mixed in. Sometimes I put this on bread , especially if we are going to be out at a meal time, I am assured she will get something to eat that is "on my list". At home however, I frequently feed her this mixture right off the spoon and she loves it!
Another good food to fatten baby up is Avocado. Carolina seems to hold the view that this is another gaggy option, but I like to mash it, add coconut oil, and a shake or two of garlic salt into it - she will eat it this way on a cracker.
We also bought Carolina walker with the idea that getting her upright where her feet are touching the floor, might tempt her to put some weight on her little legs. She seems to think she is getting royal treatment to be put in this contraption!
The doctor seems to think that her muscles will strengthen in time due to some of the supplements she is getting. The zinc, for instance, builds muscle tissue. Keep praying!
