Dear Dr. Cason,

 My eight and a half year old grandson is currently 40 pounds (yay!) but in the 99th percentile in height. He could wear his 4-year-old brother's cloths, but for the length! (I should mention that both his father and mother are very small-boned, although average height.)  Although he does not each very much at  a sit-down meal, he does "graze" throughout the day and actually eats quite a bit. However, his weight remains an issue and he is the target of much teasing about it at school and now summer day camp.  Do you have any specific recommendations regarding supplemental dietary aids such as Boost, etc. that might help him bulk up a bit more?  Any suggestions are gratefully appreciated.
