From Allison, child's age 12

Hi everyone, my daughter who just turned 12 gained alot of weight this past year. at her check last year she weighed in at 194. this year when we went her weight is at 225!! that's 30 lbs. now i'm really starting to worry. her doctors are worryed to. she gave us a book to help us make healthier choices. it shows which cerals are better less suger. so when i went shopping this week i bought cheerios,fat free milk,fruit ,salad stuff. i'm trying to keep it as healthy as i can. we watch the serving sizes to. also now that the weather is warmer we go for walks. but what i need to know is reducing the suger, eating the right serving, and exercising, is that enough? i need to really pay attention now i don't want her to be an overweight and unhappy through her teen years or adulthood. please help! any advice would be appreciated.
