Thanks for your query.

I suggest you to avoid giving him nuts as whole. At age 3 the digestive system would not be strong enough to digest the hard protein in the nuts. You can give him ground fried nuts as malts with milk.

Give him more fruits and vegetables which are easy to digest and also contain the nutrients which a three year old needs.

Also give him energy drinks like Boost, Pediasure etc daily with milk.

Hope, I answered your query.
