In this paper we extend the general construction of entropic approximation for kinetic operators modelling canonical systems. More precisely, this paper aims at pursuing to thermalized systems the works of Levermore, Schneider and Junk on moments problems relying on entropy minimization in order to construct BGK approximations and moments based equations.
