Typical unless sick: Offer pain relievers if he has mouth sores. Keep nutrition up with liquid foods such as yogurt and soups. It is typical for 2 yo to be poor eaters when they get ill they refuse more so. Pain relief is the major issue here.

Depends: If you don't exercise you'll gain weight on 2000 calories. Weight loss is a balance of what you eat and what you burn off.
