From ANNE, child's age 5

Hi,I have two sons one is 5 weighs 85 pounds and is 46 inches tall. The other is 7 is 95 pounds and is 55 inches tall. I try to limit their intake of sweets (no more than one small one a day) and make the rest of their food choices healthy ones.They are always saying they are hungry and will eat almost anything I give them. They are fairly active but with New England type winters it is hard to do anything.Any ideas on how to get them to maintain their weight without making them feel self-concious and worried about eating.I grew up with a weight problem and I am still dealing with issues from things said to me as a child I don't want this to happen to them.Help
