I'd up the calorie and fat value of your snacks and meals and worry about getting your child gaining weight first and then worry about lowering the calories and fat for long term later.
Oh trust me- I've NEVER tried to restrict calories or fat with her! Cheese is out because of her allergies- cheese is by far the easiest high fat food out there otherwise. My challenge is just finding high fat/calorie foods out there that are safe for her!
