Vicki, a stick of butter is 8 tablespoons, or a half cup. But look! Here is a butter converter!  http://www.traditionaloven.com/conversions_of_measures/butter_converter.html

Oh, and someone here from Australia was talking aboaut how an apple slice was her daughter's fear food, and to an American, that sounded particularly bizarre, as an apple slice here is a slice of apple! It took me a while to figure it out.

I just found this article with recipes for homemade power bars:  http://www.chow.com/food-news/56973/superpower-energy-bars-for-school-days-and-work-days/

The Cherry Power Bar gets really good ratings. May have to try it myself.

Today in the supermarket we found a new Jif product - little "to go" tubs of swirled chocolate and peanut butter - 250 calories.  D got sick of peanut butter a while ago, but I was thinking this could be a good change of pace on fruit, graham crackers, pretzels, etc.  And it's easily portable.

Anyone have a good recipe for a potatoe chip dip that is high cals? D is requesting this and the best store dip I can find is only 60 cals per TBS. I am thinking that sour cream as a base and add chives etc....any other ideas?

not sure of the calories but a good tasty one with a sour cream base is

 

Knorrs dry vegetable soup mix

sour cream

mayo

 

I suppose you could add some evvo or some hwc to boost without changing flavor too much?

 

Also a yummy treat that i have a weakness for as a comfort food, and dd likes now too....ripple chips and cottage cheese (4%, not low fat).

I do a chip dip with a container of sour cream, a package ranch dip seasoning mix, shredded cheddar cheese, and bacon bits (I always just eyeball the cheese and bacon bits).  It goes good on baked potatoes too.

oh i forgot, another is with sour cream and good seasons salad dressing mix. Then you can add chopped chives or onions or other veggies as you wish. I think your onion dip sounds good....would add just a little of the italian dressing mix just for the salty/spicy bit.

 

other snacks i forgot about

 

deviled eggs

celery stick logs stuffed with cream cheese or peanut butter

what to do if your child will not eat snacks??  ie between meals.  My 11 year old D is very rigid about only eating 3 meals a day and we try to make her meals as filling as possible, but after a big weight loss last year, she has not gained any weight in months, she has lost a couple of pounds the last couple of months as she has also become vegetarian

Just the question about dips. For a dip I mix two parts sour cream to one part mayonnaise and add herbs and a touch of lemon juice.

AMoma, what about actual power bars made for sports? Some of those have a lot of calories. I posted a link to some power bar recipes above, if you want to make your own. Granola bars would also be good.  Any of those plus juice. Also, maybe apples & peanut butter?

with swimming i think it is high energy and then restore after...so night before pasta/carbs, then just before or during fruit like oranges/apples/grapes and nuts and then restore after with your protien bars, bananas, choc milk, and then high prot dinner....  doesn't always work that way, so just really overall making sure lots of cals to support the sport!  Power Bars vary a lot, so look carefully at the labels. I think the highest is "powerbar protein plus" if I remember right.

these are not necessarily high calorie but are the energy part and then you can follow with the higher calories.....since they obviously are not dealing with ed. so you would need to do that.   but it gives some good ideas...

AMoma,
I make some very high calorie granola bars which everyone love, and paired with a sweet tea it's an easy and portable snack. Lots of nuts and mini chocolate chips.

Grandpas brand cinnamin swirl bread...sold at Walmart (unfortunately) has 170 cals per slice and they are small! I give D 3 slices with about 4tbs butter total and sugar and more cinnamin. With a glass of juice this is at least 1000 cals.

Also been doing a lot of yogurt parfaits. Layer full fat greek yogurt with maple granola and fruit. This can easily reach 600 cals.

I recently found out that there is a "very hich calorie" version of Boost - haven't seen it in stores, but it is about $40 (including shipping) for 27 packs of 8 oz (236.588 ml) @ 2.25 kcal / ml

Thank you, sk8r31!  Lots of good ideas here, and I simply love the multicultural aspect of these ideas.  I'd love to know how perdido made her high calorie granola bars.

Costco Kirkland  cinnamon bread is 200 cal a slice, a bit higher than the Wal Mart bread...

I make my own granola bars  (and granola) and will post the recipe when I am at home... very easy to make and easy to add calories to by adding more nuts, etc.

Just wanted to add our new miracle food to this list: pork scratchings. Discovered yesterday that a modest bag is more than 500 calories, has 40g protein and - drum roll - 40g fat. Not filling, either. S devoured them in minutes.

As he said, "It's a pity we didn't discover these before".
