What does your toddler eat for breakfast?
Mine is a bottomless pit:
Whole milk, 2 scrambled eggs with shredded chedder, fruit (strawberries, pears, apples, blueberries, grapes, etc) avacados...
Then, he grazes on cheerios and raisins until naptime.
He is in the 20% for weight and 90th for height. He eats super-healthy and we don't give him any juice unless it is fresh (usually once a week.) He drinks a lot of water!!

My 15 month old can also chow down. She sometimes eats a WHOLE bagel with cream cheese, some fruit, and nibbles off both my plate and my husband's. It's insane.
She is in the 50th percentile for weight as of her last visit and the pediatrician told me not to worry. She is growing fast and will have days where she eats a ton and some days where she doesn't want to eat at all.

My baby boy is 15 months hold. He eats 2 whole grain pancakes, a handful of blueberries, and whole milk yogurt for breakfast. This is more than I eat. He eats all day and his weight is up into the 13th percentile. It's frustrating to me that he eats so much and doesn't gain weight. He can't wear pants because he's too skinny to hold any of them up. He has to wear once-piece outfits. Anyway, his weight was always in the 9th percentile. I finally got him to gain a bit of weight by feeding him whole milk yogurt. I buy the Yo-baby brand. Some days he'll eat 4 of them. Also, do anything you can to get your baby to drink whole milk. I put it in everything I cook and I make banana milkshakes with them. All milk, frozen bananas, and a little vanilla.
I have an idea that this is just how boys are. My doctor is not at all concerned about my son's weight. However, I spend a lot of time fretting about it. Good luck to you.
I talked to my sister about this because her boys are the same way. She said Pediasure helped her when they were young. I'm going to try that too.
