How can I make sure my child is getting enough calories?

Kids Need More Fat

One of the ways to ensure young children are getting enough calories is by not overly restricting dietary fat. Kids need extra calories since they are growing and developing rapidly. So, for instance, adding a slice of avocado (nearly all fat) to a sandwich is fine, or using nut and seed butters on sandwiches and vegetable sticks is also a good idea.
