    i see too many carbs and not enough protein/fats.

    what times do you eat? what are the gaps between your meals? try to eat every 2-3h. even if you'll end up eating 6-7, times that's alright.
    - bf: no protein? eggs maybe? or throw some protein powder over these oats...kick the bagel and up the oats to 1 cup.
    - lunch: is the pasta whole grain? if not get another carb source.
    - is the milk necessary for that afterschool meal?
    - dinner: no protein? how about some eggs/tuna/lean beef? again whole grain pasta or brown rice only or even better veggies.
    - implement a prebead protein snack. i.e. cottage cheese.

    and throw in some nuts, evoo and maybe some fish oils.

    you dont need to eat 7 times a day. unless you want them to eat 250 cal meals every 2 hrs, which would be a massive pain in the ass.


    i suggest eating 4 meals, and a prebed snack - maybe whey and water, and some natural peanut butter.


    a good thing to do to make sure you have enough protein throughout the day is cook 3lbs of 93% beef ( around $2.80/lb at walmart) every couple days. its a fact that when you dont have food ready to go, you make bad choices.


    above all, you need a diet plan. google UD 2.0, or CKD. these are the easiest to stay on because there is a clear line of what you can eat, or not.
