Hi, sometimes deficiency of some minerals and vitamins causes difficulty in weight gain. Continue giving high calorie diet. Give protein supplements, minerals and vitamin supplementation prescribed by pediatrician. And also give tablets for worm infestation every 6 month once. Consult pediatrician for furthur care.
