From Lorie, child's age 8

My child is 8 years old and weighs between 107 and 110. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how i can help my child lose weight. He really doesn't snack that much cause we live in a neighborhood that is full of children for him to play with. I am very worried that he is going to have cardiovascular problems down the road. I am taking him to a doctor to see if they will check his arteries. I feel sorry for him because he knows that he looks different from everybody in his class. Some of the kids that don't know him very well...have said ugly things to him about his weight.
