comment Protein shake for children?
If you increase his activity does he eat more? Playing computer games is sedentary and doesn't burn many calories, so his fruit and popcorn probably more than feeds his calorie use on computer games. If you increase his appetite with activity, you can introduce more healthy foods and vegetables establishing healthier eating habits.
