thanks for writing

a child of this age should be eating from the family pot almost everything a adult has minus spices etc

if he is weighing only 8.5kg his weight is less for the age

so you will have to improve his calorie intake by giving him calorie rich food

give him lot of fruits, vegetables and improve his fiber intake for constipation

giving enough water is also required to treat constipation

dal should be present in diet along with cereals for complementing the proteins of each

hope this helps

take care

Mungdal every day is ok,but make sure he drinks enough amount of water.Give him water at d night also,when he wakes inbetween.Give 1/2 tsf ghee with warm milk just before he goes to sleep.liquid diet such as spinach soup ,fruit juice etc. is useful.
