From Kari, child's age 6

Hi. I am happy to found this site. I could really use some assistance. My daughter is 6 (almost 7) She is 4'2" and weighs 80 lbs. She is in the First grade. Yesterday she asked me why her stomach stuck out so much. I didn't know what to say. Last year I managed to keep her weight gain down, but when summer ended she had gained 7 pounds. I know that she will never be a lithe skinny frail looking kid. I just want her to be healthy, happy, and comfortable with who she is. If I could help her to stop gaining even if I can't help her lose some...I don't know what to do. Any advice would be great.
