Hello there. although your question is regarding weight,you have not mentioned his present weight. his ideal weight weight needs to be around 20-25 kilograms. what you are giving is a good diet. nothing you need to change in that but if the child asks you can give him a little bit of junk foods, don't be so strict on him. if his weight is in the range of 20-25 kgs don't be worried. Regards.
