You could contact the cystic fibrosis foundation and get some brochures on nutrition. DS is a toddler with CF and he needs about 1/3 more calories than most others his age. Also needs more salt 'cuz they sweat out more sodium -- thus the salty tasting skin. Also because of digestive issues, CFers have troubles absorbing certain vitamins -- a, d, e and k, so ds is on a multivitamin specifically for cfers called adeks.

Basically we let ds eat whatever he wants -- lots of highly caloric things -- whole milk with carnation instant breakfast, lots of cheese, yogurt, chips, peanut butter -- we add olive oil to his casseroles, cream to his milk. We make sure his food is salted.
