Before you post a reply saying that your child is overweight or that you want them to lose weight, please first check our Weight Calculator. If the calculator says that your child is healthy weight, please do not post a message saying that they are overweight or that you want them to lose weight.  This offends the kids who really are overweight.  Thanks a lot.

From Lori, child's age 7

My daughter is 7 1/2 year old. She's getting a little plump, but I've never told her that cause I don't want her to "diet". She's 95th percentile in weight. I know how to cook for her when at home, but I need good lunch ideas. She goes to a private school and they can only pack. On Friday's she has pizza day. She knows to drink lots of water. If she has juice or soda it's only one glass then the rest water or milk. She does love sweets though and she eats quite a bit. She gets plenty of exercise because she's on a swim team. Thanks for your help!
