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.

From Kati, child's age 7

My son is somewhere between 4'8 and 4'10. He is very active and prefers water, juice, or fat free milk. He eats very little but he weighs 121lbs. I'm afraid that something is wrong or that he is overweight. He gets picked on for his weight at school because he is taller and is heavier than most kids in his class. He wears 16 husky pants and 16-18 size shirts. Any suggestions on what could be wrong?
