24 year old having weakness and not gaining weight. History of typhoid fever in the past. How to gain weight?

Hi I am a 24 year guy, my height is 5 9 and weight is just 46kg, I am physically very weak. I had suffered from typhoid fever in my childhood, duration was about 1month. It affects my normal growth, I never gain weight, I was never a healthier boy after that, even now I look much younger than my age. Is there any treatment for my weakness, how could I gain weight and become a normal person? YYYY@YYYY

The sweet taste of fruit and mint juice can rouse your appetite.
Banana is one of the most calorie-rich fruits.
You need to include the right mix of protein, carbohydrates and fats in your diet. Legumes, tofu and nuts are some protein-rich foods. Rice, potatoes and sweet corn are some carbohydrate-dense foods. You also need to gain some fat which can be done by garnishing your meals with butter, olive oil or cheese. Milk and dairy products are very good source of fat and other important nutrients needed for weight gain.
