Hello Pooja. The weight of your son is not very low. Has your pediatrcian told you anything specific that he is under nourished? Do check out this article to get an idea.  Monitor  what your baby eat. In case he is a fussy eater try to experiment. Read a book, play a song, a game or make eating interesting.

Thanks for tagging asha chaudhry. Have you checked his weight and is it reduced than before? When kids grow and when they learn standing and other activities...their calorie will burn. And they won't store fat as much as in their early years. Then they look lean, slim , bony or weak. If baby is healthy, active and playing well..then no need to worry about weight. Still to increase weight you can give some high calorie food like... banana, chickoo, grapes, mango, jackfruit, add little ghee while feeding rice. Remember the ghee intake per day should not exceed more than 1 and half spoon. Give more water. During summer...kids usually don't like to eat more. Give them juice.

wonderful advises here, not much to add. weight also depends on birth weight. also if baby is very active, he won't store much fat. you can also try the dry fruits powder in his food...http://app.babychakra.com/feedpost/5201 the recipe.
