enough protein?

15 years ago

I've got an 11-year-old son who has very finicky eating habits. He has a particular displeasure with vegetables(what kid doesn't?). Since he's not a heavy eater, I decided to a trick to get him to get more protein. I blend 1 can of Boost or Ensure with some ice cream and make a shake. Am I doing wrong by giving him that sugar boost time after time? He stays away from sweets(totally on his own)and he will eat some veggies(corn,tomatoes,lettuce). I'm not giving him the shake every night so as to not addict him to it.

And has anyone noticed that the kids aren't outside playing as they normally do in the summer? Is the climate creating shut-ins?
