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.

If you are an adult and not a parent, type your child's age as '0'

From Sabrina, child's age 8

My step daughter is overweight. She is a very picky eater. When we go out, all she will eat is chicken fingers with ranch dressing. She does not eat fruit except bananas or many vegetables. She eats lots of bread and her favorite meal at home is spaghetti. She rarely gets any exercise, and I can't force her. Are bread and spaghetti fattening?
