      Anne - at this point, feed her what she wants and will eat. If it's nutritious, fine -- but if it's not, at least she's eating something. I went through a phase where I ate stuff I liked as a kid: spaghetti, canned ravioli, macaroni and cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches, popsicles and ice cream!

      My parents supplement their diets with a bottle of Boost every night, frozen like ice cream or a milk shake, and they look forward to eating it before they go to bed while watching TV. They prefer the taste of chocolate Boost to Ensure. There are several types of Boost, and the High Protein is what they buy. My least favorite is the Calorie Smart Boost.

      They've mentioned they've also bought a powdered can of Boost and sprinkled some on their cereal, although I haven't seen it.
