My 9 year old son ( to thin ?!)

Hey! I'm new to this forum and I am from Norway.
I am going on low-carb diet and are satisfied with both weight loss and energy.
My kids eat normal diet. Slices of bread (without sugar). Milk, Dinner (fish, chicken, meat, vegetables). They allowd eat candy at Saturday.
My son is 9 years and is quite thin, he weighs 26 kg. I want him to gain weight.
He is active and clever boy in sport but struggling a bit with konsetrasjonen at the school.
I would like to add more fish oil, coconut oil and vitamin D3

Those Some of you have experience with adding coconut oil and vitamin D3 to you children?
how much you give?
Will this help him gain weight and get better konsetrasjon?

I would seek advise from his pediatrician (DR) before giving him anything. Boys go through growth stages, he will gain and grow when he hits puberty. What is konsentrasjone?

My nine years old sounds alot like yours! He is also very thin and has issues with focusing and concentration at school. I have given my kids D3 for years now. I give them 1000 units a day. I also give my boys fish oil every morning and it does seem to help a bit. The biggest change we noticed was with coconut oil. I tricked him a bit and mixed some with peanut butter - his favorite food ever - and he really enjoyed it. All was well until I didn't mix it really well one time and he found a chunk of coconut oil not mixed in. That was the end of that!! Well, so he thinks - he is now eating coconut oil fudge. I do really find it makes a difference in his focusing. I am slowly trying to wean him from his carbs and even he knows now how bad he feels when he eats too many.
