A:   Hello
Thank you posting your query on “Ask the Doctor”

You can go for a supplement like Iron, Vitamin B complex, Folic acid, Zinc, Vitamin D, A, E, Calcium
You can continue to take powders like Perfect.
The best way to put on healthy weight is by following a healthy diet with balanced carbohydrate and protein contents.
I suggest before you start any supplement, you meet a Nutritionist directly and discuss your daily diet. The Nutritionist can also give you some counselling on how further weight gain can be achieved.

Hope this was helpful.
